  1. Hello guys, Finally I received the biometrics appointment letter - Elizabeth, NJ ASC on 12/29/14 @ 1 PM. But, it'll hard for me to go at 1 pm since I'll be at work and I cannot take a day off. 1. Can I go early morning around 8:30 on the scheduled date 12/29 and get my FP done instead of 1 pm? (same day just different time) 2. Any experts/NJ-PA filers have experience with the early walk in at Hackensack, NJ/Philadelphia, PA? I'd like to go tomorrow/Wednesday if possible. Thanks in advance. --------------------------------------------------------------------- 11/25/14 (day 0) Concurrent Filling (I-130, I-485, I-765 and I-131) - Package sent via FedEx 7:57 PM to Chicago Lockbox (USCIS FBAS 131 South Dearborn-3rd Floor, Chicago, IL 60603-5517) – FedEx Standard Overnight 11/26/14 (day 1) Package delivered Chicago Lockbox 10:43 am signed by S.RIBEY 12/03/14 (day 7) NOA1 email/text received with 4 Receipt Numbers, I-130, I-485, I-765 and I-131, around 5 PM 12/06/14 (day 10) NOA1 Hard copies (I-130, I-485, I-765 and I-131) received in the mail 12/20/14 (day 24) Biometrics Appointment Letter (Dated 12/12/14) received - Elizabeth, NJ ASC on 12/29/14 @ 1 PM
  2. Hello guys, Here’s my timeline: 11/25/14 (day 0) Concurrent Filling – H1B marrying USC - (I-130, I-485, I-765 and I-131) - Package sent via FedEx 7:57 PM to Chicago Lockbox (USCIS FBAS 131 South Dearborn-3rd Floor, Chicago, IL 60603-5517) – FedEx Standard Overnight 11/26/14 (day 1) Package delivered Chicago Lockbox 10:43 am signed by S.RIBEY 12/03/14 (day 7) NOA1 email & text received with 4 Receipt Numbers, I-130, I-485, I-765 and I-131, around 5 PM. 12/06/14 (day 10) NOA1 (I-797C) Hard copies for I-130, I-485, I-765 and I-131 received in the mail 22nd day today from the day application was received by USCIS. Still No Biometrics Appointment Letter. Is it Normal? I am just getting little worried because when I see other people’s timeline who applied concurrently in/around November 2014 (In fact all 2014), all of them have got their biometrics appointment letter in maximum 15 days. Most of them have got the letter in 10 days. I called USCIS but they say I have to wait for 30 days. I just don’t want to miss my biometrics in case if my appointment letter has been lost/sent at wrong address or something like that. Is there anyone else here in similar situation? Thanks in Advance.

    Proof of Address at Biometrics Appointment???

    Thank you, Jairichi. I'll change my DL address.
  5. Hello Experts, I have filed concurrently – I-130, I-485, I-765 & I-131. I am waiting for the Biometrics appointment letter to be received. My Driving License address doesn’t match with the address I have put in the applications. Basically, I have moved to a new address and that’s what I am using in my applications everywhere, but I haven’t changed my License address yet. So, 1. When I go for Biometrics, would it be a problem – different addresses on Application & Driving License? 2. Do I have to give them Driving License too OR I can just show that my passport and get biometrics done? Thanks in Advance.
  6. Thank you so much for your reply, pontevecchio. GC package is sent. Now, I'll start my h1b extension with Regular Processing. Thank you, again.
  7. Thank you for the reply, pontevecchio. I am sending my GC package tomorrow. I was thinking to apply for H1B extension too, Just to be on the safer side. What would you recommend from your experience in terms of Regular processing vs.Premium processing considering my scenario? Going for Regular processing would save me ~1200 bucks and I think it will be safe enough because I can still work after Feb 10, 2015 with the h1b application receipt number/h1b application pending. What do you think?
  8. Thank you, ManUtd. That was quick - 1 and a half month for EAD in hand. I hope I get my EAD that soon as well. I am picking up i-693 sealed envelop tonight from the civil surgeon's and then I am ready to send the package tomorrow morning :) One more quick question, I know the answer of it but still just wanted to confirm. Once I get EAD in my hand, I can work for any employer, correct? Asking this because, I have an offer at another company & I would want to work for them and not with my current employer, who holds my H1B.
  9. Hello Experts, I am a full time employee on H1B visa currently, expiring on Feb 10, 2015 (2 and half months from now). I got married to US citizen last month only. I have all the paperwork done, I hope to get some answers here. I am thinking not to apply for H1B extension and directly apply for GC through marriage. I know it takes like 4-6 months after the application sent. I-765 takes up to 90 days etc. I have some basic questions as follow: 1. Can I apply for GC now OR It must have to apply before the 90 days expiration of H1B? Asking this considering I have 2.5 months left in my H1B. 2. Will I be eligible to work after H1B expiration with i-765 pending? 3. I know i-765 could take up to 90 days to get approved. Any idea, how long does it take to have EAD card in hand? Is it possible I can get EAD card within 2.5 months (in ideal scenario)? Thank you in advance!
  10. Thank you very much - Jairichi , Pontevecchio & rahul412. I'll book their flight tickets now. Thanks again.
  11. Hi Experts, My parents got the visitor visa and they are planning to come to states in Aug-Sep. In DS-160, we had mentioned my address (NH address) in “Where will you stay in US” thinking they’ll land in Boston. Now the plan has changed, my parents & I are planning to live in NJ since we have some families in NJ/NY & we’ll hang out mostly in NJ/NY, so I think landing in NJ will be more convenient for them. 1. Is it ok for them to land at Newark, NJ? 2. Will they have any problems at POE (like stop them, ask too many questions etc.)?

    H1B transfer while on Cap-Gap - EVC Model

    Are you in the same situation? What are you planning to do?
  13. Thanks, Attorney_10. I got an approval today from my lawyer and then when I went there and check it is now showing as Approved.
  14. I am in the same boat :) What did you do?
  15. Hi all experts out there :) Currently I am on Cap-Gap. I have already got approval of my H1B starting from Oct 1, 2013. I am in EVC Model. I want to get my H1B transfer. I want to change my Employer because I have had really bad experience with my current Employer since last few months. I have already found a new employer & they're ready to transfer my H1B. I just want to change my Employer (Vendor & Client will remain the same, same project, I have already talked to them - VC - and they're ready to work with my new employer). I have a few questions as below : 1. Is it possible that I can ask my new Employer to do initiate H1B transfer during cap gap? If Yes, is it risky? Shall I wait until my H1B starts & then initiate H1B transfer? 2. If I get H1B transfer done in a month or so (PP) from now, can I start working for new employer right away or I'll have to wait until Oct 1?
