  1. What's so urgent about this? You have very specific dates in asking for a "friend"; the thread title, otoh, refers to you in the first person.

    Can i switch Job after GC interview?

    Understood, but a company that filed a PERM and I-140 petition for you.. with the understanding there is no qualifying American to do the job.. doesn't have work for you? Why else would they ask you to return to your home country?
  3. According to your previous thread, an amendment is already filed, and under RFE. What gives

    Can i switch Job after GC interview?

    A company filed for a green card for you but don't have a project for you? How does that work?

    No Green Card, only working permit

    What was the basis for the work permit? And what is the wife's status in the US?

    B1 approval trends in India

    Location has nothing to do with B1/2 adjudication. Applicants have to convince a CO they have strong ties to home, and applications are decided on merit. Interview locations should be chosen based on residence. Hyderabad rejections might be due to a combination of lack of ties and not being truthful.
  7. Exactly how many documents were looked at by the CO 12 years ago? Answer: none! B2 visas DO NOT require sponsorship! She applies, she interviews, CO adjudicates.
  8. A CO decides whether or not to issue a visa. Your family has to be truthful with the facts, irrespective of it's impact on a visa.

    What is right SOC for Product Manager

    Isn't this something your employer or their attorney should be versed in? Legal stuff is an attorney's domain.

    H1b fulltime to part time

    What should you do? They asked you to submit previous two years' paystubs. The employer's attorney needs to do exactly that.. submit your paystubs in response to the RFE.

    H1B to H4

    You do not chose a processing center "to get it faster". USCIS determines where to route petitions primarily based on their workload.

    H4 to H1 transfer

    You can only do a job if you're approved for it. No authorization, no work! Of course you knew that when you came to the US from your country.
  13. You specifically state that they overstayed, why would you answer anything but Yes to that question?

    F2 to H1b through Non Cap & COS

    The previous employer should have revoked the H1b petition as of Nov 2nd last year. Period. End of story! And why ask the same questions again and again and again? Did you not acknowledge responses on December 3? Jeez..

    Last attempt in H1b masters CAP

    First, a PhD, and when that isn't encouraging enough, an MBA. But the common thread is CPT! Leave the US once OPT ends this year. If you want to study, decide what you want to do, get admitted to a public university, then return on a student visa to study. Forget CPT.
  16. About time USCIS and DoS is cracking down on duplicitous Indian petitions.

    How much time will take to resolve 221g

    Advice doesn't change in two weeks since your last thread. Assuming you're an Indian national having interviewed in Hyderabad, you could be working in India where you have authorization to work.
  18. Why would you overrule a paid attorney's advice compared to a public forum's? AP lasts as long as it lasts; no amount of congressional inquiries or re-interviews would hasten an AP.
  19. SSN is for life. You have to put your SSN where asked.

    H1B to B2 and again to H1B

    Applying for b2 status when you have no intention of being a tourist is a big no-no, and you'd just be clogging USCIS resources on top of their backlog. If the 60-day grace period elapses without keeping you in status, you need to leave the US to avoid accruing unlawful status. There is a presumption you could work in India where you have unlimited work authorization. Do not break US laws.
  21. A big fat NO Do not ever lie to US officials.
  22. Her i94 is independent off her visa expiration. SHe is good to return on 25th APril. And she needs to stay out of the US for a year or so before any future visits to the US, assuming she obtains another B2 visa which is by no means guaranteed. Remember, a B2 visa is for "short visits" to the US, not a 5.9 month stay.
  23. You could petition for an F2a as early as the day you enter the US on an IR5 visa. That's the day you officially become a US permanent resident. How did the elder son obtain US citizenship?

    H1b Interview Question

    This is a desi-centric forum. The truth is relative in all desi-centric forums. Anything goes.. to procure a US visa.
  25. Don't any of these companies have jobs in India? I heard the Indian economy, and by extension the job market, was doing well.. according to govt statistics. As an F1 student, you're expected to complete your degree and return back home to be employed.
