    Dad's second B2 visa rejected (approved for Mom)

    Most of the times the CO will start with some basic questions and which some applicants (especially senior citizens) don't consider that as part of the interview process as they have prepared to answer tougher questions and present documents. When none of that happens they are under the impression that they were not asked any questions. I know there is a lot of preparation (months in some cases) that goes into the whole visa interview process and when the actual interview lasts for only 1-2 mins, they tend to think that the CO did not ask them enough questions especially when their visa is rejected. Successful visa interviews also last the same duration. It's just a perspective from the applicant standpoint.
  2. Talk to you DSO and get the data fix done. You can do a data fix in your case as withdrawal was submitted before Oct 1st and COS should not have gone through. It's better to come back to F1 status before you leave the country for stamping. I am thinking data fix should not take long. I replied to your other post.

    H1b to H4 transfer and stamping in India

    You can quit before you receive the H4 receipt number, but if you have the option to wait and quit then that will be a preffered option. You will have 60 days or until i94 expiry date which ever is shorter to file for an COS petition to H4.
  4. 1 yes 2 it's better to do it this was as there will be no gap in status. 3. No

    LCA impact on h1b duration

    Not sure what you are trying to ask.
  9. Holiday season so it might take an extra day or 2. Look for it this week and have your attorney call USCIS to get an update.
  10. If your employer withdraws you i140 before 180 days, you will lose your PD.

    I94 Expired and Extension-RFE under process

    A new employer can file for a transfer petition which will most likely be consular processing as your i94 is expired. You will have to go for stamping when its approved to switch to new employer. New petition can be tied to your current petition but if current petition is denied then new petition will also be denied. Risky.

    Change of status from H1B to H4 while in US

    If you are laidoff or resign, you will get 60 days or until I94 expiry date which ever is shorter to find a new job or file a COS. So with the 60 days you can file for H4 and continue to stay in US. It should take most likely take 1-2 weeks for the receipt notice after you apply. Plan accordingly.

    You will have 60 days from Jan 10th to apply for a H4 COS. Once the H4 COS is filed and you have the receipt number you can stay legally till its adjudicated.

    Visitor Visa denied due to insufficient funds

    First they need to let go of the fear and answer the questions that CO asks them clearly. I can totally understand their situation and yours. Just talk to them and get them to relax before the interview. If they can show sufficient funds for the trip then why even ask the question.

    Dad's second B2 visa rejected (approved for Mom)

    They should have give your Dad some paper with a reason as to why they rejected the visa. CO can't just reject a visa without giving you a reason. What did your Dad work as which triggered the question for a resume and educational details? If you can't figure out why was it rejected and want to reapply, then talk to an attorney so that they can review your fathers case and advice you and him appropriately.
  22. Its better you get new H4 visa stamp and travel. If not you will again have to file for H4 extension after coming back. Waste of money.
