  1. The EB category is decided based on the job requirement, NOT on what the candidates qualifications are. You can have a PhD with 10 years of experience but if the job only requires a only Bachelors degree, it will NOT qualify for Eb2 or Eb1 Hopefully this will help clarify.
  2. Why don't you contact the consulate and discuss your case details and medical recommendations from the doctors, I am pretty sure, they should be able to help you out in some way, may be someone can come down to the home/hospital to verify? Again it is my assumption but getting in touch with the consulate won't hurt. Good Luck, I pray your daughter gets well soon! Hopefully things will work out for you.

    President's Tweet - What does this mean?

    Let's keep discussion on this forum around Law and how it applies, this is pure speculation, nothing said/discussed here would benefit anyone.

    Filing N 400

    On following link (which I would assume you have already seen) "https://www.uscis.gov/n-400" click on 'Where to file' and if applying on paper for both IA and MO you need to send your application to Chicago, IL and from there on USCIS will forward the your application to the appropriate field office for processing, I DO NOT believe it is your choice to choose which field office your application goes for processing, but I can be wrong, so I'll let others weigh in. Best bet call USCIS and ask to be 100% sure. Good Luck!!

    H1B Amendment query

    Unfortunately the amendment is done, so you cannot move back to the old location, that would have to be another amendment. Yes, you would need to file for extension before Jan 2019, since that is the new end date.

    Days spent outside of USA

    My personal opinion, its better to wait till Nov to apply so that the whole scenario of having to explain over 180 days of absence from Trip 1 is avoided.
  10. I would not hold my breath on OCI processing in time, there official processing times are 60-80 "Business Days", which for India excludes all weekends, all US public holidays and All Indian holidays!! Renunciation is a two weeks process from end to end (by mail).

    Indian Passport Expiration after applying N400.

    You will NOT be able to travel without a VALID passport while on Green Card. Also N-400 processing these days are taking upwards of 6-8 months (depending on the field office), so do not count on getting the US passport before expiration of foreign passport. My advise to you would be get your foreign passport renewed (one last time), you'll be avoiding some hassle your situation might bring. Good Luck!

    Renunciation with OCI or Visa

    Both US and Indian passports will be returned to you within 2 weeks and then the OCI process will continue and take its own Sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet time.

    GC Initiation - 2018

    1. No Issue 2. In general ~6 months, but nothing is set in stone, it really depends on the individual case 3. Chance is there to get I-140 approved before May 2019, sure!....... How likely? I wouldn't bet on it.

    N400 interview scheduled

    You can always ask them to delay the oath ceremony for a date after you come back from India, a couple of my friends did that, they just informed the IO that they have a scheduled trip and there oath ceremony was scheduled after there date of return, actually one of them took oath past Monday after they got back from India, interview was back in December'17.
