    H.R. 392 House Bill

    Why ? It seems to be proposed by republicans while house majority is republicans and we heard overwhelming “yay” during amendment that was added. How , by who, why and when would it stumble?
  2. Hi experts ! what do you think is a fate of this bill ? what process will be followed now and how long will it take to become the law ? When will petitioners start getting benefit of it - after senate pass or after president passes and it becomes law? please share your thoughts. Thanks
  3. Question is Based on this released policy change.Policy On page 5 under (2) Consideration prior to Issuing RFE mentions officers will obtain all pertaining evidence submitted prior by various means before issuing RFE. Or does this policy as a blanket understanding means “ There will be no RFEs , direct rejection” ? please peovide your input.

    Termination notice

    Whether you signed an agreement to receive delayed payment or not - You can get them in trouble for "this" forget they suing you about the damages. They got more things to worry.

    H1b transfer

    Based on Hari's post it seems he currently holds H1 visa from Employer 1 and transferring to Employer 2. If Employer 2 petition is rejected he still holds the valid Visa from Employer 1 which makes his presence lawful. In your case , you have a current visa valid till Mar 2019 and Current transfer petition is under RFE, your presence remains lawful as well. The rule you sighted as (4) applies to condition where your current status on "any visa" category is "Expired" AND extension is not filed/approved or IS Rejected OR Transfer petition to any other status is not filed/approved or IS Rejected. Like it states "Upon the denial" is an important use of verbiage.

    H1b transfer

    Yes, Absolutely you can. Your current H1B with Current employer is not affected by transfer acceptance or Rejection.

    Convert from H1B to F1

    Hi @JoeF if I140 is approved , doesn't that mean he has his priority date and it's his until it becomes current. If he goes to F1 and comes back on H1 again - is that possible even though he has exhausted 6 years of H1B I140 approval can be a route back into H1 - is that right ?

    H1B Denied , got 221G

    Not sure why do you have such impression or it's just an assumption. If the company has been flagged for any reason - (a) I would think the company themselves must not be aware , else why would they risk themselves more ? (b) any petition they file is going to be a long shot for approval. If your documents are clean AND Company is clean - Why it was rejected in first place , we can't guess. But the fact that other category of petition is pursued makes me think it's a desperate attempt even though 2 applications should not have any proceedings over other, it will be looked at carefully.

    H1-B Transfer through two employers at the same time

    Filing H1 transfer or application from multiple companies is a normal. Many do it for variety of reasons. At the end of the day, look for your personal best interest increasing the probability of having "H1 Transfer Successfully done". Questions about validity of it's ethical aspect is moot considering the selfish interest supported by the legal system , and it's not a abuse in my opinion. If none or 1 get approved you know what you got to do and If both get approved, pick one and deal with the one whom you are going to deny. There could be "legal" burden if you signed any dotted line for liquidated damage and "legal fees" disclosure ( not the Petition fees, employers can't do that).
  11. you are eligible to get 3 years of extension if approved

    H1B Extension RFE

    Emergency travels, RFE in progress are unfortunate. There is a legal provision in certain emergencies, seek expert legal guidance.

    Cruise - Immigration Experience on Arrival

    The statement below is my own opinion : - I think the current immigration chaos at borders and beyond is against certain countries and more so with undocumented/illegal immigrants. Fact that you have a valid Visa and a passport + guessing from your username the nationality which is not a part of the agenda that's causing a chaos, in my opinion - You should be good to enjoy the vacation cruise and return. there is always that 1% probability at the time of immigration of things going haywire - you me and non one on the planet can predict that.

    First H1 B stamping in canada ?

    I am told, it's actually other way round. I have been having tough time finding any authenticated material regarding this on a .gov website of US Immigration. If anyone does a better search please post here.
