  1. Hi, I need some help/advice and I would really appreciate if someone can help me. This is regarding labor application for green card not being filed before 365 days of my H-1B expiration date. My H1-B expires on Jan 15, 2016 and my labor certification application 9089 was filed on March 06, 2014. Since my labor wasn't filed 365 days before my H1-B expiration date, I know if the labor takes time I will be out of status. - Should I stay here to see if my labor gets approved in time? or is it very risky to go out of the country to India for a few days at some point in Aug-Sept to claim those days back and make it 365 days? - The visa stamp on my passport expires on 12/28/2015 so I am not sure if that could cause any trouble when I come back in Oct-Nov? Or do you advise to leave early probably around May-June for India? - Usually how much time does it take for the labor to go through? - Assuming that I stay here and if my labor doesn't get approved in time, I will have to go out of the country until I-140 is done. Does anyone know if it is a problem coming back here considering that I will have to go for visa stamping during that time? Are there any immigration issues while coming back? - Is there any option to get around this? I know these are lot of questions but I would really appreciate if you can help.

  3. Hi, I recently received an offer from other company and they are in the process of doing my H-1B transfer in premium. However, I think I don't want to make the switch and stay at my current company as they are willing to file my green card. If I say no to the new offer while in the midst of H-1B transfer, will there be any issues? Can I still work at my current company?
  4. Hi, I tried googling but didn't find anything helpful, hence posting my question here. 1) My company recently started the process of filing my green card in EB-2 category. Here are the things that I know of that have been completed in the first step(PERM) - completed obtaining prevailing wage, almost done with posting ads at various places and recruiting process. I am not sure at what point will I get the priority date? 2) Usually how much time does it take to get the priority date once green card process is started in EB2 category? 3) I believe I can change jobs once I receive my priority date but a big advantage would be - whenever the new company starts my green card process, they will have to start over but during my I-485 phase, the priority date received from the previous company will be counted right? This way my green card process will be a bit faster as priority date from previous company will be considered right? 4) My 4th year in H-1b just started and my company has already started the green card process. Would it be wise to switch to another company at this point knowing that they may or may not do my green card at least until first 7-8 months? Usually what would be the max time after which green card cannot be filed while on H-1B? Sorry for too many questions but I got an offer from some other company and really confused about making my move because of green card.
  5. Hi, My current company just started the process of filing my green card i.e. posting ads on job boards and all. I received a job offer from a non-profit company as well as from a profit company and both companies say that they can file my green card a year after I join. I just completed first 3 years on my H-1B visa so I don't know if it is worth it to join any of those companies and wait for another year for the green card to be filed? What is an ideal time to file the green card? and what would be the latest to file the green card at which point it is like a risk? Is there any advantage of filing green card through a non-profit over a profit company? I am sorry if this question had been posted before... I have to respond to the job offers asap so thought of posting this question here and in the mean time I will check out the posts on the forums as well. Any replies will be greatly appreciated. Thanks :)
  6. Hi, I have a question about my H-1B visa transfer from a non-profit to a profit company. I got my first H-1B from a profit company in 2009 after which I switched to another profit company in 2011. I got a job now in a non-profit company so I understand that the H-1B visa transfer will be a usual process but my concern is what if I want to switch back from the non-profit(the one that I am going to join) back to a profit company? Would the H-1B transfer process from non-profit to profit same as I have had before or will I fall under the quota and have tyo wait to file it on April 1? Are there usually any issues with H-1B or filing green card through a non-profit?
