    H1B Extension

    Hi, My employer has applied for 7th year H1B extension based on approved I-140 under normal processing. USCIS received H1B extension application on Dec 1st, 2016. With new Trump administration coming up with executive orders everyday, should I pay for and convert my application to premium processing? Thank you so much.

    New job after Layoff

    I was laid off on H1B and was without job for 15-20 days. I have got approved I797 with I-94 number from new employer. Right now I am in India for visa stamping and stuck in one of the DS-160 question. Could somebody please help answering below question from DS-160? Have you ever been unlawfully present, overstayed the amount of time granted by an immigration official or otherwise violated the terms of a U.S. visa? Should I say YES or NO? Thank you.

    Any suggestions on below questions please. Thank you so much for reply. Please help me answering few more questions. 1. Are there chances of getting H1B transfer approved under consular processing? 2. Can I work for new employer on getting transfer receipt or do I have to wait till approval? 3. Since I have current H1-B visa stamped till mid October, do I have to get new stamping and then come back to US in case of consular processing? Thank you. Appreciate your help.

    New job after Layoff

    Hi, I was laid off and have accepted a job offer. My lasy paycheck was on June 16th and signed offer with new employer on June 22nd. My new employer is working on filing LCA and then H1B in premium processing. New employer knows the urgency that I amout of status till the time H1B transfer is filed. I am not sure how much time will this process take. Do you think I should start H4 process at this time just to prevent accruing more illegal stay days? I can on H4 on my wife's H1B. Please suggest. Thank you

    Going from H1B to H4

    Thank you for your reply. You can enter on H1B visa only if you have a valid H1B petition, visa, I797 and a job. I have a valid petition and visa stamp till 2017. Do I have to have a job with previous employer or I can get come on new job as well?

    Thanks for your response. If I leave my job in US and go back to India. What would be the best way to return to US in case I need to? Should I go on H4 or is it possible to use my H1 stamped visa valid till 2017?

    Going from H1B to H4

    Hi, I am on H1B visa right now with I-140 approved. I am planning to leave job in US and join my startup in India for 6-8 months. My spouse also has I-140 approved. Can I come back to US on H-4 if I plan to and start working on H4 (based on new rule)? Will it be a problem getting a dependent visa? Thanks.
