    Applying i-485 independently

    thanks joef...i got employment letter from my employer. I am applying for my spouse as dependent too. So, should I send 2 forms each (1 for me and 1 for my spouse) of I-485, I-131 and I-765??
  2. Hello My Priority date is in May, 2011 for EB2 category. So, I will be able to apply for 485 as per new rules in October visa bulletin. My spouse is on her H1B but GC process is not started. So, I will be applying for her as my dependent. Can I apply for I-485 to USCIS by myself? Or my employer or attorney should do this? There are 3 forms I need to send. I-485, I-765 and I-131. Should I send only 3 forms with my name or should I send 6 forms (3 for me and 3 for my spouse)? Also, I was on F1 and I had EAD cards on my OPT. In form I-765, there is question no.11 asking if got work authorization from USCIS before? What should I answer for this? Thank you..

    I-485 filing..other forms

    please respond..
  4. Hello My Priority date is in May, 2011 for EB2 category. So, I will be able to apply for 485 as per new rules in October visa bulletin. My spouse is on her H1B but GC process is not started. Questions: Starting what date, can I apply for 485? Can I apply EAD for my spouse as dependent to me? Once EAD is approved for me and my wife, what will happen to her H1? Is there a 180 day waiting period from date of filing for me to change employer if I want to? Is this applicable only to me or to my spouse also? Does my spouse have any waiting period? Coming to medical test, can me and my spouse get the tests done at different clinics (doctors listed in USCIS website) in different cities or should it be done at same doctor? Also, is medical test necessary at this step? I saw many posts saying test results will be expired by the time 1st table dates become current and we will need to submit them again in later stage. In some places, they are saying 4 copies of G-325 are needed and in some posts, they are saying only 1 copy. Which is correct? Are pay stubs, W2s and tax returns necessary to be submitted? Thank you...

    Non Availability Certificate for D.O.B

    u or ur parents can go to municipal office and request for birth certificate. if all ok, they will give one...if not they will give a letter saying why they cannot give birth certificate. this can be called as Non-availability certificate from respective government organization. if this is given, then we should provide secondary evidence with affidavits from parents n relative.

    Alien Registration Number (H1B, I140, H4EAD)

    My current I-797 and approved I-140 both have same A#. I am providing that. My spouse is on H1 and her 797 doesn't have any A#. So, I am leaving it blank for her application.
  11. Hello I am applying for EAD as per new visa bulletin. I don't have a birth certificate. But the city council (from India) gave me a note stating that they cannot certiy my DOB becuase the birth certificate is requested 15 years after happening of event. So, what should I do? I am thinking of providing these documents as proof for DOB. Letter given by council stating why they cannot give DOB. Letter signed by me stating that birth certificate cannot be provided and I am providing the below as secondary evidence. High School Marks certificate (this is considered official by Govt. of India in India) College Marks certificate College Transfer Certificate Passport US Driver License Please suggest if anything else is needed. Thank you.

    I-485, No Birth Certificate - India

    Ya, I got a non availability certificate from municipality. I am not sure how important it is but that is what they gave when asked for birth certificate. With that, I am sending affidavits from my parents and relative and SSC (10th class) marks list. Passport, US Driver License will also show same DOB anyway..

    I-485, No Birth Certificate - India

    Also, I will be attaching copies of 2 affidavits (one from my father and one from my mother) stating my DOB as so and so and that is true and signed by them respectively. Are color photo copies sufficient? I may not get originals in time. Please suggest. Thank you..

  16. Few people are saying even though we submit medicals now, we need to submit again if our priority date takes more than 1 year to become current. I am confused whether to send now or not.

  19. Hello My wife is on H1 currently. I am on H1 with I-140 approved. I have H1 till June 2016. She wants to convert to H4 so that she could get EAD. Attorney said H1 to H4 conversion is taking lot of time. Can my wife go to Vancouver and get H4 stamping on my current H1 and come back to US on H4 visa? Will that automatically void her H1 and make H4 and eligible for EAD? Please suggest Thank you..

    H1 to H4 to EAD

    Hello everyone.. I have some questions on H1 to H4 to EAD conversion. Please let me know if this is optimal and valid situation that can be done. Current Situation: I am on H1B visa which is valid till June 2016. My wife is on H1B visa till November 2017. I have stamping as well. I have I-140 approved. Goal: Convert my spouse visa from H1B to H4 and get her EAD under new H4 EAD rule. Want to do this..can this be done in this order..? She will continue working for her employer as of now. And she will book a H4 visa stamping date in India for month of November 2015. Before leaving to India in November 2015, 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 get H4 visa stamping done in India as dependent on my H1B papers which is valid till June 2016. So, I guess she will be getting H4 visa till June 2016 as well. Is this correct? As she is on H4 visa now and I have approved I-140, she can apply for EAD under new H4 EAD rule. Is this correct? If her EAD is approved, will it be valid till June 2016 or any specific period like 1 year? If its till June 2016, later I need to get H1/H4 extension and after its approved, she should apply for EAD extension. Is this correct? Doubts: Regarding applying for EAD, should she be in US to send the application? She may stay in India for long time but I will be back in US early. So, can I apply and can she come back after EAD approval? Or should she be in US as well? Or can we both stay in India and apply for this EAD? Just want to save some processing time of EAD. Need suggestions. Please clarify my questions. Thanks a lot.

    H1-B to H4 (EAD)

    I am also waiting for response on same. But my employer said he will apply for H4 for my spouse. but he said he cannot apply for EAD and wanted to consult any attorney to get this done or myself. I think I will do it myself as its straight forward.
