  3. Current Status : He currently holds an H1-B. Wife currently holds an Green Card. They have an approved i-130. Waiting for the priority date to get current. @Pontevecchio : What do you mean by conditional green card ? @JoeF : Do you mean from the time they both have green cards in hand? Please re-phrase. Thank you both in advance. *_*
  4. Greetings, I would appreciate the time taken for all the meaningful responses rather than the guesses. Chronological events: May 10 2012 : Employer filed for PERM under EB-3 Aug 2012 : PERM went into an audit Sep 2012 : H1-B Expired (All 6 Yrs Exausted with 10 days of Re-capture time available) Sep 2012 : Employer responded to the Audit Sep 2012 : Filed for B-2 (Approved until Feb 21) Dec 2012 : PERM was denied Jan 2013 : Employer appealed for the denial Feb 2013 : Filed for B-2 extension (Approved until May 19) May 2013 : Employer Filed for H1-B 7th Yr extension under premium processing May 2013 : Case status changed from Acceptance to Initail review with the generic "Premium processing clock stopped" message My employer states he does not receive anything in the mail. Best Regards, *_*
  5. Hi All, All answers are appreciated in advance. My friend is married in May 11 and his wife has a GC and he is on H1-B. Back then she had GC, they filed for I130 and it was approved. They are going through some hardship / misunderstandings and his wife does not want to sponser his GC now. But earlier she said that she would support him no matter what but now she says no. So the question is if she files for the GC how long does she need to support him? Does the 40 quarters start form the day he started to earn / The day they are married / The day affidavit is signed ?

    Need help in filing GC

    Hi Babu, Please find inline answers for your questions... 1) I am currently working for an Indian based IT company who will not process GC, and my Current Status is H1B Visa, 2 years completed and currently stamping is till 2013 March. Will it impact any way for my GC if consultancy files? A) You can change companies, but make sure the company you are going to is a bigger firm/consultancy and it has more than 200 employees so that you don't get any kind of **** from U.S.C.I.S. 2) I know other consultancy who is interested to file my GC and asking for documents. Can I continue with my current company and ask for consultancy to file GC? If they file can I continue till I get GC (or) up to what time I can stay with my current company? A) There are 3 Parts in getting a Green Card. 1) Labor, 2) i-140, 3) i-485. When the first part is in process you can work and be with any firm, But when the second part starts you should be with the company who filed / started your Green Card Process. After 180 days of second part commences, you can change companies again but with high caution only if you have the same job description. I strongly would not recommend this procedure unless you are with companies like Cisco, Intel, etc. since they do lot of Green Cards every year and can manipulate things as needed. 3) Is consultancy need to inform to my current company about my GC filing? A) The answer for this is company A (which you are currently with) does not need any information about your new company nor it needs to know about your new company in anyway. 4) My Details: Education is – 4 Years degree (Biology) ( so 16 years education) + MCA (3 years) Experience: 8 years. Is my profile eligible for EB 2 (Level-2) category? A) You do need to consult a good lawyer for this question since there are many small things which cannot be communicated in a blogs / forums. *** One of my sincere advice to you *** Please consult an immigration lawyer about this.

  11. Hi All, Here's my scenario ... My H1B (6 Years) is going to expire at the end of Sept 2012. Labor application will be filed in April 3rd week. Going by the current dates, I still have a good chance of getting labor approved and I-140 approved (In premium) by Sept. We have applied for Family Visa (1-130) through my wife and she is going to be citizen in another 3 years. Need to maintain status for 3 years. Is there any other option other than F1 in this scenario. If I apply for F1 when Iam still on H1b will my H1B be cancelled ? Not sure of the timing when to apply for F1. If Iam still in country can I apply for COS (Change Of State) from H1 to F1 ? how long does that take ? Thanks in Advance.
