  1. Thank you JoeF. It was insightful. It was a staffing solutions consultancy who had a client when they applied my H1 but they lost over the time and saw no reason to respond to my RFE. As you said, I should have avoided that consultancy in the first place. Learned from this mistake. Since I am still on OPT, can I change the employer with the new offers I got while I still do not know the H1 status? I understand either my H1 would get denied with some risk to my OPT or gets withdrawn with no risk to F1 status. Also, will USCIS send the withdrawal letter back to my employer(consultancy) or update the status on their website? How long would it generally take. Thanks a lot!
  2. Hello Admin/Users, Here's my situation in detail: I work full-time for a very good company using my stem OPT, since this is a non-profit I had no interest in applying H1 through this company. I got an opportunity through a staffing company meanwhile which promised me to get to a good client from October 1st and applied my H1 as my future employer. I have never started working for staffing company - Now I got RFE with staffing company and all of a sudden they had no interest in submitting the RFE as they have lost the client and saw no reason offering my H1. I too did not see much future with them so we mutually agreed to withdraw that H1. Rfe submission deadline date - October 23rd. Staffing company sent the H1 withdraw request on Oct 17th. All this time I have been working full-time with my old company thinking I can later move and apply H1 next year. QUESTIONS: 1. Will USCIS consider H1 withdraw request after October 1st? If yes, withdrawing my H1 would get me into any trouble with my current OPT? 2. If withdraw request did not get into time, if USCIS consider to deny my H1-Application, would that affect my current OPT status? 3. Part of my RFE is to prove whether did I maintain F1 status legally, not submitting this would create any problem with my OPT? I have seen some cases where while denying H1 they said person is unlawfully staying in US and must leave. (All because they did not submit RFE properly and lost OPT as well). I did not think I would get into trouble as such. Now I have two offers with major companies trying to recruit me on OPT and promise to apply H1 next year. Not sure whether my OPT gets into trouble here and afraid to make a move. Not sure when will I get to know that my H1 application is successfully withdrawn or denied without any affect to OPT. Please help. Totally appreciate your time reading this. thanks a lot.

    My Case resolved. They charged me lower offense. I paid penalty and everything but undergoing a drivers program assigned by court.

    DUI - Applying for OPT STEM Extension

    Court reduced my case to DWAI (Traffic Infraction). No criminal case, probation etc, just fine. This happened in NY.
  6. Hi Kksk, What documents did you submit as a part of proof?
  7. Hi Members, Thanks for your service. I have got arrested for DUI in Sept 2016. My Visa was revoked as well. I have not left the country and I am applying for OPT STEM Extension this month. What can I expect? Will I get my OPT? I've seen some of them getting it without any problem but some got RFE's asking them for court disposal and DSO documents. What will be my case with the most recent update in this group? Thank you, Vivek

    Hi Judas, I was following all your posts. I need your help. Even I got the DUI 4 months back and about to apply OPT Stem extension this month. Since USCIS asked you for DSO letter and Court disposition letter after applying OPT, Did you send them? Have you got your OPT extension?? Please help me. Hope you will reply at the earliest. Thank you.
