    H1b layoff due to covid

    You should prepare for all scenarios. 60 days will go by and you will be stuck with what to do if you don't prepare ahead. Prepare for the worst, hope for the best.

    H1b layoff due to covid

    You will be able to cancel you H4 if you are able to file the H1 within the 60 days. If you cross the grace period and find a job and apply H1 transfer, I would not recommend you to cancel the H4 petition.

    H1b Renewal/ Extension

    Yes, you can use any unused period of your H1 by filing a new petition.

    H1B Stamping in Emergency Case

    Why you need H1 to come for medical treatment, you can apply for B2.
  5. Correct, my original answer still holds good. When was you I140 approved and was it approved for more than 180 days? When did you leave your old employer?

    Unethical practices by prime vendor

    Its called Capitalism.

    Middle Vendor Causing Legal issues

    On what basis they planning on doing this if you have not singed any documents with them. He is just trying to see if you will feel the pressure and change your mind. Make sure all communications happen in emails and you can use that to complain against him. Rule of law is the same for everyone. Nothing to worry about.
  8. Nothing will happen to if the I539 by Emp B is appooved or denied. Emp A need not do anything.

    H1 & H4 parallel processing

    It would be better to get a decision on her H1 by Sept 30th and if its approved them you are good. If not, you can file for H4 before her I94 is expired. You should file for H4 extension before I94 is expired even with the H1 in process. There are some risks with it but its better than failing out of status.

    H4 Transfer

    She should have a valid I94 which might have come with the previously approved I539, if she doesn't then you need to talk to an attorney ASAP. If her old I539 is approved till Jan 2021 and she has an valid I94, then you should apply for H4 extension before Jan 2021. She can't stay solely with your H1 approval copy.

    H1b layoff due to covid

    You will have 60 days or till I94 expiry date which ever is shorter to stay and find a new job. You should wait and apply for H4 before the grace period ends. But you can't go back to H1 till the H4 is approved and it can take an upwards of 6 months. If you wife has I140 approved, you can move to H4 and apply for EAD and work on EAD. You can also apply for EAD on the basis of approved I140 under compelling circumstances. You will need to have an attorney verify if you will qualify.
  12. Yes, if the I140 was approved for more than 180 days you can use it for H1 extension beyond 6 years.

    Unethical practices by prime vendor

    I do understand your pain. But there is nothing unethical about deciding to do a pay cut. They are running a business and can decide how much to pay you. You can take legal action if they are not paying you on time. You should take this up with the client and mention that the prime vendor is not treating you well and if there is an option to move to a different prime vendor.

    H4 and H4 EAD visa extension

    Yes, you can stay legally while the case is pending. Its better to call to get it rescheduled.
  15. User099

    H4 EAD approved before H4 COS

    You should wait for H4 to be approved before you can use the EAD. Usually they don't approve the EAD before the H4, not sure why they did it for you.
  16. If you file your H1 in PP, her H4 will not be adjudicated with it. H4 and EAD will take 5-6 months to come back. Her H1 will mostly be approved before her H4 come up for adjudication.

    H1B Stamping

    It looks like the consulates will issue a 221G even if they are open while there is travel ban.
  18. Its your personal choice since you need to pay extra for it. If it was me, I would do Premium and try to get a decision on it before I94 expiry date.
  19. B2 is the only option if they want to legally stay in the country beyond 60 days and if they don't have any other visa they can transfer too. If the B2 is pending, then H1 will most likely be approved in consular processing which means he will need a visa. If he has a valid visa, he can go to the border to come back in on H1. If he doesn't have a valid visa then he will have to travel to get a visa stamp and it can't be done till the ban is lifted. He won't be able to work on the H1 receipt notice. B2 is just a temporary status to live here legally till you make travel arrangements.
  20. Best thing will be to the H1 in premium processing and get a decision before I94 expiry so that you will have time to transfer to H4 or a new H1 can be filed.

    H1B transfer

    You can, but make sure Emp C will hold the petition for you and not withdraw it.
  22. User099

    Passport Expiry

    1. Yes 2. You will need to apply for an H1 extension or travel to get a new I94 before the current one expires. 3. No

    H1B Layoff options

    During normal time, it is recommended to leave before the the 60 day grace period is over and come back when you get a new job with a new visa or a valid old visa. But due to travel restrictions, B2 is just a temporary option to stay till things become normal. There is no other option other than to wait for the B2 to be adjudicated or the travel ban be lifted.
  24. You will need amendment so that location A can be added to the LCA and petition for Client Y.
  25. Ofcourse the child is not a child any more when he turns 18.
