Dis you have the 13 years experience in before you got the original H1, or is that only now?

If you didn't have 12 years experience when the H1 was first issued you may have a big problem.

In the Trump era, they now scrutinize H1 extensions, and they could decide that the original H1 was issued in error.

You need to discuss your situation with a good immigration lawyer.

Hi Neda,

My company has an attorney. but I felt that they wouldn't give importance to every case since rfe volume is going to be quite high.

Hi JoeF,

I didn't complete the 12 years of experience when H1B was issued.

Thank you so much for your advice on this!!

Hi Mari and Patsam, Do you have any updates that you could share with us. Have Y'all look in to getting credential evaluation done(if you have taken any computer related courses either in Bachelors or Masters) or even for that matter any certifications in related to the work you do?

 

Good luck.
