    STEM extension OPT (Corp-to-Corp E-verify)

    I am not so much worried about being able to land jobs later. I have very authentic degrees with Ivy League schools and an excellent academic and publication track record. But what I would like to know is, what company name must my updated I-20 have? Will it be the e-verifying company (B) or the actual company (A) where I will be working. For instance, I pulled the information below from a USCIS webpage, but it is non-specific on this aspect: What E-Verify information is required for an F-1 STEM student to extend his or her OPT?The student must provide his or her employer’s name and its E-Verify company ID, or Client Company ID if it uses a third party designated agent to perform its verification queries, in item #17 of the Form I-765 (revised 04/08/08).
  3. Situation: (OPT card not recieved) I did my PhD from a Ivy league university. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow on my first year of F1-OPT, which expired July 14th, 2013. I am awaiting my 17-month STEM extension OPT card, which has taken more than its routine 3 months processing time (don't know why) and is yet to be approved. --I know by default I get a 180 day extension. Associated Problem: (Changing jobs) I would like to change jobs starting October 1st 2013. to work for a ed-tech company (say A) as a Data-Scientist. 'A' is not e-verified. However, they will be rerouting my salary through a e-verified recruiting firm 'B' (corp-to-corp as they put it to me). I spoke with my PhD university. They say, as long as I provide all details of company B including e-verify number, they don't have an issue. Is this legally possible? Will there be problems for me later on when I apply for a GC or H1B.
  4. I am getting married in United states. Both our parents got visitor visas. However, my brother's (Age 20, new passport) visa was rejected in India under 214 b. He didn't give our marriage as the reason, and gave his reason as tourist. Can you kindly advice on the chances, and how he should proceed now so as to get a visa. Should he specify our marriage? What supporting documents should we send him?
  5. Dear Sir, I am currently a postdoctoral student in Northwestern University. I did my PhD in Princeton university. I am in the first year of my OPT from Princeton. I have an option of either obtaining a Northwestern university sponsored H1B for this year or to get my OPT further extended for 17 more months. The only problem is I am travelling to India and need to get a VISA stamp to come back into the country. I can get all the valid employment letters and funding related statements for my entry back from my university. I know visa stamping while in OPT is slightly risky, and on the other hand in H1B I will loose two years of my 6 year limit just doing postdocs. In my case, given I have all the required documents for F1 OPT stamping, and that my university is willing to sponsor a H1B, what would be a better option to take. Your insights could be very helpful. I am having a tough time deciding on this. Thanks, Sri
