    H1B Extension with I-140

    I've transferred my H1-B (7th year) from Company A to Company B. I have my I140 approved in 2012 with Company A. Am I eligible to apply my H1-B extension with Company B even if my I-140 is not approved with Comp B irrespective of my I140 with Company A is Active or withdrawn or revoked ?
  2. I'm working with my current Company A(consulting) and have Full Time opportunity with Company B. Can 1 and 2 (below) be filed simultaneously (same week) with same or different USCIS Service Center in Premium Processing. 1. Company A file my H1-B Extension+Amendment (change of role), H4(F1 to H4 Change Of Status), H4-EAD for my spouse. and 2.Can Company B file my H1-B Transfer+Extension, H4(Change Of Status), H4-EAD for my spouse. I heard multiple H1B Applications can be filed, but not sure if multiple I-539 Forms(H4) applications can also be filed simultaneously ? The reason I'm doing multiple is because I wont be eligible for Premium Processing with my current Company A as I am doing amendment of Role. Also, post Sep 11 there is No RFE Rule, so I don't want to take chances. If multiple applications cannot be filed simultaneously, please suggest me how to proceed. Thanks in advance.

    H1B Amendment Withdrawal

    Its critical, appreciate if anyone could answer it for below scenario in EVC model:- 1. Joined a project in May and filed H1 Amendment. Worked on this project/location for couple of weeks. 2. Joined another project in June and filed another H1 Amendment. 3. Sent withdrawal letter for May H1 Amendment in July first week. Got R-F-E on May h1 amendment and now status changed to Withdrawal application received. Questions: 1. Is it correct process to withdraw previous amendment as the candidate is no longer working at that location? (I heard from another attorney that once candidate files H1 Amendment and works at that location, should not withdraw the H1 Amendment. Is this True? 2. My attorney suggests its sufficient to respond to RFE by just sending withdrawal letter and it should not be an issue. Is this True? Thank you, Appreciate your time!
  4. My H1 B (6 yrs) expires on Aug 10. I have I 140 Approved. I'm currently working in EVC model. My employer got MSA (Vendor-Client agreement) from Vendor with end date as March 30 and also email saying that Client will renew MSA for another 3 years on March 30. I got an RFE asking for extended MSA. Now, Vendor is saying they are still in negotiations with client for extended MSA and asked me to wait for 1-2 weeks Internally I came to know, that there are high chances client is looking for other vendors companies for future projects. If my vendor doesn't get extended MSA then what are my options. Please suggest. I'm really worried and not able to focus on anything.

    OPT EAD - H4/H4EAD

    Hello All, I am working for XYZ Employer on OPT and My spouse works for different employer ABC. I'm thinking to convert from OPT to H4/H4 EAD COS. 1. Can my employer XYZ file both H4 & H4 EAD in parallel(together) ? 2. My employer is not sure if above can be done. He says H-4 should be filed by my spouse employer(ABC) and once H4 receipt is issued, my employer XYZ can file for H4 EAD. Is this true ? 3. If 1 is not possible, Can I go with an other outside immigration attorney(like murthy) and file for H4 & H4 EAD while working for my employer XYZ ? Thanks

    Hello All, I want to apply my wife's F1-H4 COS and H4 EAD concurrently. Also, I would be filing my H1 Amendment in 2 weeks as I am changing my job. My current H1B is valid till Nov 2017 and my I140 is approved. Question 1 : Can I file my wife's F1-H4 COS and H4 EAD along with H1B Amendment Premium Processing? Will the premium processing be applicable for both H1B & H4 COS? Question 2 : Or should I file my H1 B Amendment and my wifes F1-H4 COS & H4 EAD separately ? In this case, if I file my wife's F1-H4 COS & H4 EAD with current H1B and while its in Pending Process, I file my H1B Amendment in Premium. Will H4 COS get delayed or would there be any RFE as I would have file my wife's H4 COS with my old H1B, but once my H1B is approved it would be new one(change in WAC number). Please Advise Thank you.

Please advise. Thank you for spending your time to answer.

    F1 COS to H4 & H4 EAD

    Thank you for the response Can someone answer to my below question. It would be helpful. Question 3: If I apply for F->H4->H4 EAD Concurrently and if either of the status is not approved before I graduate(i.e Dec 2015), then will I loose my status? I read in one of forum "selecting a future date for H4 COS is beneficial in case someone does not want loss of work authorization, for example F1 OPT -> H4 + H4 EAD." What does this mean? Can you someone help me understand. Thank you
