  1. At this time there is only 60 days of grace period, wait for the "Bill" to pass to see what will be in it.
  2. Not without filing an Amendment, and new pay should meet the LCA requirements.

    H4-EAD to H1B COS With extension

    Its better to submit a H4 extension just because we don't know how the H1 petition might turn up. H4 will be a fall back if H1 gets rejected. But the problem you will run into is if H4 is approved after H1, then she will end up in H4. You might have to withdraw the H4 if its pending and H1 is approved.

    I-94 expiry and Covid-19 Travel restrictions

    File an extension before the I94 expires, but plan to travel once the flights are back operational.

    Preferred option will be to leave once you 60 day grace period ends and you can't find a job. But in these times with countries in lock down and no place to go and no means to travel, it might be better to submit a B petition for covering the gap. It might take a couple of months to be adjudicated, but you should leave as soon as things are back to normal and not wait for the B Petition. This is just my option and shouldn't be considered as legal advice. Its better to talk to an attorney to talk about your options.

    I-140 premium processing on hold and visa maxing out

    Wait to see if there is anything in the COVID stimulus bill which is being discussed. If not, plan to leave by June. I140 can still continue while you are in India.

    Recent travel experience during Corona Virus

    Was this only for your friend or others who were not US citizens also stopped from boarding the flight? Looks like they are implementing something which is not official.
  10. You can apply for an extension. I think there is no other option with the current travel restrictions.

    Counselor Processing Success Rate

    Was you I140 revoked before or after 2017? Any employer can file for a GC if they have a job for you. It will take approximately 18 months if your date is current. Dependents will be added at the time of filing i485. Approval will depend on your case.

    H1B to H4 to H1B Transfer

    Why do you want to go back to H1 if you have the option of EAD? Doesn't make sense to me. Your employer will have to file a new petition if you want to go back to him after the gap in employment.

  15. 1. a Yes, b. H4 will be approved from the date you file the COS. COS and EAD will take 5-6 months and more with current situation.

    Drop box to Interview

    Its better to check with an attorney, but I feel you should be able to travel back by withdrawing your visa petition and If you can find a way to come back with the current lock down.

    Change of status: F2 to H1B

    There is no option or alternative to stamping. If you somehow travel to India with the lock down in place, you can ask the consulate if they will do an emergency appointment provided you qualify for it.

    H1B stamp - options

    All I can say is to wait and see if there is any improvement by your EAD expiry date. If your EAD expires and you can't get the visa by then, you will have to stop working. But you can always go for stamping and come back on H1.
  19. No, if selected i lottery the case will be have to filed by the employer who submitted your petition for the lottery.

    Past dated client letter.

    Maybe submit it without the client letter and just with the MSA or PO

    Past dated client letter.

    You will need to show the job will be valid in the future and not a past job.
  22. a. Yes b, You can join on receipt notice. But it will best to take some legal advice if you have to move on a receipt notice again. c. Its up to them, but any sensible person will withdraw the petition once you leave.

    1. Yes, but that will still allow you to maintain the PD 2. It depends on B 3. It will be valid till the current EAD expiry date and you should be able file for an renewal with A's I140.
