  1. Hello This is my situation. Current H1B: Valid till June 21, 2016..stamping on passport done. I-140: Approved Future Plan: Apply for H1B extension: January 21, 2016 in premium. Is this ok as its 6 months ahead? Validity: Lets say I get 3 year extension which will be from June 21, 2016 to June 20, 2019 (a day or two +/-). I need to make a trip to India in March 2016. Technically I don't need to go to stamping as I have valid visa till June 21, 2016. But lets say I go for stamping and if its approved, all is good. For some reason if there is a RFE or rejection, can I still enter US with existing visa which is till June 2016? Please suggest. Thank you..

    H1 to H4

    Hello everyone.. I have some questions on H1 to H4 conversion. Please let me know if this is optimal and legal as per rules. Current Situation: I am on H1B visa (stamped n passport) which is valid till June 2016 and approved I-140. My wife is on H1B visa till November 2017. Goal: Convert my spouse visa from H1B to H4. Want to do this..can this be done in this order..? I apply for my H1B extension under premium processing in January 2016 as its 6 months ahead. And if all goes well, it gets approved in 15 business days or so. We will be travelling to India in March 2016. My wife will continue working for her employer till then and before leaving to India, she will resign for the job on last day, get all required paper work from her employer. Her employer will not have any problem with this. So, is this OK with other immigration rules? She will go for H4 visa stamping done in India as dependent on my H1B papers. Can she take new 797 which would be valid for 3 years (Assuming my H1 gets approved for 3 years) so that she could get visa for 3 years? Or should she take the current 797 which is valid till June 2016 only? As I have visa stamped till June 2016, is it fine at POE if I come back from India in April or May 2016? Please clarify my questions. Thanks a lot.

My passport ID page is applicable in many scenarios like with I-485, G-325A etc... So, should I include 1 copy each time with each form? Or one copy is enough for the whole package?? Are tax forms, pay stubs and W-2 necessary? I don't want to complicate the matter by sending unnecessary documents, so just want to make sure. Thanks

    Same question for me too. I am on H1B and my spouse is also on H1B. But applying for I-485 with my approved I-140. What should I write for question 16 for me? For my spouse its c26. In question 18, it will be empty in my form, for my spouse should it be my receipt number from latest current H1B 797A or approved I-140 797?

    I-693 filing question

    hello prashant lot of people have same question...im also in the same boat. after giving lot of thought I thought of sending 693 now..with this there would be only 2 scenarios..if final date becomes current before 1 yr, it will be approved else after 1 yr there will RFE asking for new one... if u dont send rfe now....uscis could issue an rfe now itself asking for it....and again if it crosses 1 yr, there would be one more rfe asking for latest 639. not sure if my thought process is correct. thank you.
