  1. I have an approved I-140 with Employer A under title "Software Developer" with a priority date of 2015 June. Since then received few promotions. Currently with Employer B with title "VP Engineering" and they started my GC process in March 2021. Couple questions, - Could I still port my original priority date of 2015 June with the changes in my job titles? - And knowing that the GC process started in March 2021 (currently with DOL for job classification), when can I approx. expect to complete PERM application and move to I-140? Thanks in advance for any suggestions or inputs.
  2. A couple of months ago I joined a new employer with an approved H1B I-797. However, my wife's H4 I-797 approval process is still several months away from approval. I am told that this is because of some changes to the H4 approval process now requiring biometrics. Now, due to a personal situation change, we would like to invite our in-laws to the US in a couple of months. The question I have is will my in-laws run into any issue during their B2 Visa interview given my wife's H4-I797 is still in progress. Could someone here suggest what are my options here? Any insights would be very helpful.

    Lost job and an expired I-94

    makes sense. I can confirm that the bottom section does have a I-94 info where the end date is set to March 2022. The March 2020 end date is something I found on the CBP website where you can retrieve their most I-94 record. Although I am going to consult a lawyer, I am guessing that the I-94 info in I-797 overrides the I-94 record info in CBP site? If so, then I do have a 60 days grace period? correct?

    Lost job and an expired I-94

    makes sense, I-797 bottom section does have I-94 info where end date is set to March 2022. I was looking at my I-94 info in https://i94.cbp.dhs.gov/I94/#/home So, I guess, whatever I-94 end date is set in latest I-797 overrides the info you see in the CBP website? If so, then I have 60 days grace period?
  5. I lost my job and learned that my current I-94 admit is only until 03/15/2020. However, my approved I-797 is valid until March 2022. I have made a decision to just move back to India versus trying to look for another job. Can anyone here confirm how much grace period do I have here?

    Wife's H4 visa and H4-EAD renewal

    I recently got a job offer and my future employer is ready to file my H1B transfer and as well as my wife's H4 visa renewal under the regular processing. Now I just learned this morning that my wife's passport and I-94 are expiring in February 2020. While it is almost a year away I have the following questions: Will my wife be able to get a 3 year extension on her H4 Visa given her passport/I-94 expiration date being February 2020? Will my wife be able to get a 3 year extension on her H4-EAD given her passport/I-94 expiration date being February 2020? Can the H4-EAD extension be filed concurrently along with the H1 and H4 applications or do we have to wait until the approvals of H1-B and H4 applications? I just want to make sure that my wife's H4 visa expiration dates are in sync with my H1B expiration dates.

    H1B Transfer with a older employer I140

    thanks very much for your quick response.
  8. I badly need some advice or guidance here. I am in the 9th year of my H1B. I had an approved I-140 with Company A. And after I-140 approval with Company A I stayed at that company for more than one and half year. Then sometime in September 2016 I transferred my H1B to Company B and they promised to kick off my GC after 6 months of my employment with them. And my current H1B expires in September 2019 Now, unfortunately Company B went through layoffs in 2 consecutive years. Most recent being just few weeks ago and they had to let go people that carried same/similar title as I do. And to make things worse for me they are telling me that they cannot file my GC for at least another 6 months due to recent layoffs. Which is the same thing that happened last year. Now given this I have two questions Can Company B get an H1B extension using the I-140 I had with Company A. If I find another job lets say at Company C, can I transfer my H1B to Company C using my I-140 with Company A? Given the bad experience I had with my current company 2 years in a row I would desperately like to consider the second option but I am not sure if I can transfer my H1B to work for Company C with an I-140 that was approved with Company A. Any thoughts or guidance will be deeply appreciated.
  9. I have an approved I-140 with Company A. Which I believe is still valid as per some rule change that happened last year that is, I-140's are no longer revokable by employers unless there is substantial reason?) I transferred my H1B to Company B 2 years ago. Now Company B tells me that they cannot file for my GC for at least another 6 months due to recent layoffs. Given above, my current H1B with Company B expires in September 2019 and I have couple questions: If Company B were to start filing Green Card in March 2019, it is a realty that there is no way Labor and I140 will be processed by that time. In which case can Company B still file for my H1B extension requesting another 3 years based on my previous I-140? If I find another job, can I transfer my H1B to another company say Company C using my I-140 with Company A? Can someone please help me suggest what can I do in this situation? Thanks in advance.
  10. I have an approved I-140 with Employer A with title "Software Developer" with a PD of 2014. Now I have an offer with Employer B with title "Director of Engineering". Also Employer B has agreed to start my GC processing after 6 months of my employment with them. Now I am wondering if I will be able to use or port my priority date of 2014 with the Employer B given that my current I-140 is with the title "Software Developer". Any suggestions or thoughts would be very helpful. Thanks very much in advance.
