    H1B Salary reduction due to COVID-19.

    As long as the employer is paying you as per the LCA that was filed you should be fine. One other option is to change the position to a different role and file an amendment. If your attorney is not sure, you should consult an experienced firm. Even if the amendment is denied the original H1 should still hold good in most cases.

    H1B Extension Receipt Number not recieved

    Many people are seeing the same issue with receipt numbers not getting issued in time. If its PP your employer or attorney can call USCIS to get a update.
  3. If you get paid till July 31st and also if your employer is giving you a letter as the last date of employment is July 31st, then your last day will be treated as July 31st. You can consult an attorney to be sure.

    F4 Vs. H1B

    Leftover GC number will add to the backlog an might push the dates a bit. But you never know what this administration will do with them.
  7. For Employment based, you will need an employer who is offering you the job and sponsoring your GC. If you quit your job now, your new employer will have to start the process again but you can maintain the PD.
  8. Kids can't give up US citizenship till they are 18. Without denouncing US citizenship they can't get Indian Citizenship. You have to wait till the kid is 18.

    I94 validity and I797A validity dates

    If you have traveled and got a new I94 after your amendment was approved in June2018, then the I94 you got at the POE will be the latest I94 for you. Your I94 will expiry in Aug 2020. You should file an amendment or travel to get a new I94. With the current situation if you plan on going to the border to get a new I94, you should call the CBP office and confirm if they can do it. You should also plan on doing it before your current visa stamp expires.
  13. Yes, you can apply for one more extension while the other is pending.
  14. You can apply for H4 COS and work till the H4 is approved or you can quit and stay while H4 petition is pending.

    Leave of absence

    If your employer is not paying you and keeping you on a leave then its not good. You will have 60 days to file for a transfer. You should file the transfer and you can work on the receipt notice with the new employer. If the H1 is rejected, you should leave or file a B2 as a temporary measure. Its better to talk to an attorney if you think the H1 might get rejected and make plans accordingly.

    H1B Extension close to 240 days

    You can stay beyond 240 days, you just can't work. Give it a week or 2 and there should be some progress.
