    H1B to J1 - Residency

    Hi, I am currently on H1B sponsored by my University last year in May 2020 and am still due for stamping. I am currently interviewing for residency and all the programs have mentioned that they only sponsor J1. Can you please suggest the best way to approach this? 1. Will I still need my H1b stamping in case I match to J1 residency? 2. H1b to J1 conversion - Is it better to go to India and get the process done or apply for a change of status from here?

    STEM OPT to Cap Expemt H1B

    “Non-immigrants generally do not accrue unlawful presence while the timely-filed, non-frivolous EOS/COS application is pending,” United States Citizenship and Immigration Services said in a media release on Monday. “Where applicable, employment authorisation with the same employer, subject to the same terms and conditions of the prior approval, is automatically extended for up to 240 days after I-94 expiration when an extension of stay request is filed on time.” What does this entail?

    STEM OPT to Cap Expemt H1B

    Hi, I am currently working for a non-profit organization on my STEM OPT extension which expires on 14 May 2020. My organization has filed for a cap-exempt H1B Visa a few days ago. Given the current delay in the processing times, can I continue to work in my current position after the confirmation of the receipt of the application by USCIS? Thank you for your time. Praneeth
