  1. Hi My i 94 expired on 05/30/2017. My extension was filed in March in premiumbut the packet was returned since the amount on filing fee check was wrong. USCIS returned my packet to wrong address(to a company with similar name in DC).We got to know about that in July when washington DC company send my packet to my employer. After waiting for my extension receipt for two months, In may my employer filed a transfer petition from A (which I was working then) to Company B(which is subsidiary of A). I got receipt for that petition on 05/30 which is the same day my i 94 was expiring. Yesterday USCIS sent RFE for my transfer petition(Don't know the reason yet). 1. Now my question is what would be my options if something goes wrong and my transfer gets rejected? 2. While my RFE submission is in progress if I can find another job with a different employer can they file a H1b for me? Please share your ideas on this. Thanks

    H1

    Hi I work for a company Y which is a subsidiary of company X. I have been working for US government client from Y since last two years. My H1 was expiring on May 30 2017. My employer filed extension in March 2017. We haven't received receipt till May 3 rd week. So my employer sent one more extension petition to USCIS from Y and as a back up he sent H1 transfer petition from X which is parent company of Y with same client and project.. We got receipt for the transfer petition on May 30th. USCIS didn't accept my extension petition which was sent in March since there was wrong amount on check. But while returning they sent it to wrong address(to a company with similar name) so it went to Washington DC instead of Ohio. The company in Washington DC has sent the returned petition to my employer in July. Now I am asking my employer to resend my petition initially he said that attorney told him we don't need to worry later when I asked again he checked with attorney and said he will send the petition. Today he is saying he checked with HR and HR told him that we dont need to worry about the status, we will get transfer approved as I work for government client and we have client letter.and HR don't want to send the extension there t would be risk of denial for both petitions. They are telling us to rely on transfer and leave the extension. I am worried about my status since my I 94 already expired. would you please suggest if we can send the petition since there was mistake of USCIS, they have returned my petition to wrong address. Thanks Siva
  3. Hi My employer is going to start my GC process next month, can anybody here address my following queries. I have Bachelor's degree from India and have 8 years of experience, based on this am I eligible for EB2 or EB3? What would be the approximate time(Im aware that processing time depends on individual case please tell me usual processing times ) taken for complete GC process starting PERM status to getting I-485 approval. what would be approximate time taken for each of the 3 steps PERM, I-140, I-485. Does PERM/LCA processing have any dependency on state my employer located in? How I-140 premium process effects my priority date and current date. Thanks in advance

  7. Hi We have approached USCIS lockbox support for non-receipt of H1B extension for more than 30 days, they replied back that they will get back to us within 15 days based on first come first serve basis. Usually what would be their response time is it 15 days or we get the response before that. Anybody else approached lockbox support earlier, what was your experience? Thanks!
  8. Hi My employer filed my extension on 03/28/2017 in premium processing, as per fedex tracking number my petition was received at NSC on 03/29/2017. I haven't received receipt and employer is saying that checks not cashed yet. My employer reached a L2 officer at USCIS and they asked him to send an email to lockbox support. He sent an email to lockbox support and we are waiting to hear back from them. Is anybody else here in same situation or faced similar situation? Usually what is the response time of Lockbox support. Thanks.

    H1B extension query.

    Hi I work for Govt client in EVC model, my H1 will be expiring in 05/17. My employer will be filing extension this month. My contract ends in next month and the client is will to extend it for more than a year. Since its government office they can extend the contract till 08/17 as they have to show funds backing for the contract. so when my employer files H1 client is saying that they will give the client letter saying they have the contract till 08/17 and they have scope for my work throught the financial year . Here what are my chances to get extension approved for throughout the year or it will be extended till 08/17. At the same time I have a full time offer from a company which is ready to sponsor h1, but the pay is less compared to my current contract job and in case in future if I get fired from that full time job what are the chances for me to get a new job. do they revoke my H1 or what are the next steps. considering current situation which will be right choice going for a full time or continuing with my consulting company.
