  1. Hi All,I had changed jobs 1 year after filling I-485 (so essentially took advantage of AC21 rule). However my new employer has a policy of only providing 485J when you get an RFE or get called for interview.But fortunately 485 got approved directly (last week) without RFE or interview.- 485 filed Dec 2020- Changed jobs Jan 2022- 485 approved June 2022 (without filling 485J) new employer has a policy of not proving 485J without an RFE or interview request.Question ----- Do I need to and can I submit 485 J now? - Can not submitting 485J create any issues during naturalization process?Thanks,

  4. Thanks a lot for the response. Based on the response I am assuming that we can go to Canada and return back, however I am still not sure what do i need to do on my return to ensure that they do not automatically do the visa revalidation, and issue a new I-94 under the H4 status? Also is there a way for us to know that the H4 status has been invoked? Thanks again for your response and appreciate all the advice.
  5. Hi All, I have a unique situation and i need some input: - I am currently on H1-b visa that is expiring in May 2019. - My wife was on H4 visa until march 31st 2017 (visa was applied and approved until May 2019), She was working for consulting firm on EAD (H4 EAD is valid until September 31st 2017). We both travelled to India and got our visas stamped hence my wife’s H4 visa was stamped in India and the stamp is valid until May 2019. - On March 31st 2017 the consulting company applied for H1B visa for my wife (under premium processing). Hence she is currently on H1B status, however her project is about to end and she may not continue to work for the employer anymore. - I have discussed with my attorney and have been told that since she did not travel post H1B approval her H4 stamp is still considered valid and that she can use that to travel out of the country and re-instate her H4 status (this is the fastest way to re-instate the H4 status). I am also told that she can work on H4 EAD (until it expires i.e. September 31, 2017) only after she has re-instated her H4 status. Question: Which is the nearest country that we can travel to to get her I-94 re-instated in the H4 status? I was thinking Canada or Mexico but then i found out that they do not issue a new I-94 while returning from Canada or Mexico unless you stay more than 30 days. And that you do not even need a US visa stamped on your passport to return from these two countries. Any suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks a lot in advance.
  6. I am currently on H1b working for company A and my wife's H4 and H4 EAD has been approved until Sep 2017. Now I am moving to employer B. Employer B will file for my H1 and H4 (wife) extention until May-2019 however they are not filling H$ EAD. Question: Will the approval of new H4 cancel the existing EAD (based on previous H4)? or Can my wife continue to work on the exiting approved EAD after a new H4 has been approved. Will really appreciate the help.
  7. Thank you - pontevecchio Can i also file EAD again, along with H4 extension. Even though there is a pending EAD application filed from my previous employer?
  8. Would like to request advance members to comment on the above posted question.
  9. Hello, I am currently working with employer A with approved I-140 and valid H1 till Sep- 2017. I have applied for my wife's H4 and H4-EAD in Nov'2015 both applications are currently pending. I am planning to move to employer B. I understand that if you have file H4 and H4 EAD with H1B filed in premium processing they are all adjudicated and approved together. QUESTION - If I move to employer B can I refile for my wife's H4 and H4-EAD along with H1 transfer (which will be filed in premium) or do I have to wait for the previously filed H4 and H4 EAD applications to be processed before filing new ones again.
  10. Hi Advanced Member, Thanks for the reply. Can you suggest, what can we do now to avoid travel in January.
  11. Would really appreciate any help on the below query. I am currently on H1 B visa which is expiring on Feb 23, 2016. I have already applied (on Nov 17, 2015) for H4 and H4 EAD with an effective/change of status date of Feb 23, 2016. The application is currently pending with USCIS. Unfortunately my employer has informed me of their decision to terminate my H1 B visa on Jan 1, 2016. Question: 1. How can I change/amend the change of status date on H4 application (currently pending) from Feb 23, 2016 to Jan 1, 2016? If the above is not possible then can you help answer the below: 2. What happens if USCIS adjudicates the H4 application on January 10, 2016 with the effective date of Feb 23, 2016. Will my stay from Jan 1 until Feb 23 be considered illegal 3. What happens if USCIS adjudicates the application on March 1, 2016 with the effective date of March 1, 2016 will my stay from Jan 1, 2016 to March 1, 2016 be considered illegal. Will really appreciate your thoughts on the above scenarios and welcome any suggestions. Unfortunately I am not going to be able to travel out of the country for H4 stamping since i am expecting and due on Feb 1st.
