    H1B receipt number issue

    I second JoeF. lawyer should handle this if your employer has hired a lawyer to file the paperwork.

    H1B transfer...petition fedexed

    Looks like someone delayed here, given your I-94 expires on Sunday and the attorney filed on Friday it is unlikely you are maintaining status when the application reaches USCIS. what really matters is when it is received at USCIS and the receipt date in the uscis receipt notice. does not matter when it was fedexed. the attorney is paid so that it does not land you in such precarious situation. you should be prepared to leave the country and do consular processing for the h1b.

    H1-B Denied

    Since the second one is still pending you can continue to stay as long as the petition was filed before your end of the opt expiration date.

    Working remote part time on H1B

    You can have multiple H1 approvals and can work on more than one job. the key is that the main job terms and conditions are being met on a full time basis. I guess you need to find out from your employer if they allow part time work outside the current job. if you are working in a financial industry the answer is a straight NO. but no harm in asking. I don't see any issue here though as long as you work one job full time and meet the terms and conditions of that main one. I don't know about the concurrent H1B and how it works as mentioned by the other post

    H1b is under processing client offered me Full time.

    YES, You will have to wait for the change of status to complete to H1B. that would mean you need to submit the RFE from the current employer. Once the petition is approved then have your client attorney apply for a transfer and have the client take care of the rest
  6. sorry to hear. But your clock is ticking. you need to file for consular processing. take all docs and exit the country go to the consulate and get your h1b done . guess this is the fastest way. You have already started to accumulate unlawful presence since July . first step is to contact your attorney to see what they suggest though and follow their advice. if you need a lawyer may be try Murthy or some other immigration lawyer who can help you, if your company does not have one.

    H1-B Transfer Filing while I am not in US

    Most certainly you will not be getting a new I-94 and that you need to go out and get a new I-94. the reason being when someone submits the current I-94 for change of status or transfer. But the applicant travels outside and arrives back with a new I-94 while the transfer or change of status is pending, uscis for some reason does not see that,atleast that is how it worked in the past. so they would only approve the petition but the extension of stay is not approved. so the onus is on the applicant to go out and enter with a new I-94 to complete the process. In the past you could get some grace time. but not in todays environment

    H1B petition eligibility status

    need some missing information from you here. So you got the h1b stamped twice but never entered usa. is this for the same employer that you plan to work when you enter USA ? What is the current petition validity date until. If it is still has a date of validity into 2019 and beyond and you plan to work for that employer in USA and if you current visa is valid. just use that petition to enter the usa and provide it to immigration. Now if the petition has expired you can either apply for renewal and get a visa or simply apply for a new h1b with the new lottery.

    H1B extension + amendment denied

    Your visa is only good for traveling in and out of USA. What matters inside is the I-94. What is the validity of the I-94?. Secondly you had mentioned that the petition was filed for extension. So it would appear that your current H1b petition has already ended. If that is the case you moving to NY will not help. Can you please call out until when is your H1B petition valid till in this case. Thanks

    H1B revocation

    sorry to hear. But it looks like they want to get the client letter details. so something after 1 year . In the event it is revoked only option is file a new h1b . I think you can still get a new h1b under the old quota just that u need a new employer who can file one unless the current employer can show that the position still exists and can provide details. if you are out of US for more than 365 days you can apply for a new H1b under the 2019 quota but that would mean a new different process and yes you need to again be picked up in the random lottery.
  11. btw. you continue to remain in status for beyond 240 days until the petition decision is made and you do not accrue any unlawful status. it is just that you cannot work after the 240 days is over. however if the petition ends up denied then the unlawful status is triggered from the date the I-94 expired. in this case July. Hope this helps
  12. I believe the 240 day work extension is from the date of the current petition expiration date so March. the I-94 should be tied up to the petition expiration date. is there a reason why the petition expires in March, but the I-94 expires in July ?

    Please Help : Interview Scheduled and Eligibility

    I am assuming that you got green card under employment based. If so the law states u can file 90 days before 5 years to be eligible. So your case will be denied unfortunately. I am not sure from where you heard of 4 years +1 day even family based by marriage is 3 years you moved to california and then filed right away . You are right you should have resided for atleast 90 days before filing sounds like you should read the instructions of n400 before filing. Wish you luck
  14. FOlks this is an off topic but folks who have knowledge please advice. I am a greencard holder and wanted to setup my company for consulting services .I wanted to know what kind of company setup would be more advantageous for me in terms of tax benefits. I see LLC, Inc, Scorp and C- corp but cannot a heck out of it. So anyone who has this info, please advice.
