Question about delaying my H1b extension filing

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I would like to ask you one question about delaying my H1b extension filing.

A bit of a background about my situation: I am currently extending my H1 visa based on my approved I-140. My I-94 expires in the month of December. So my company would generally start filing for H-1B extension in June.

I am getting married to a Chinese citizen early next year. So I qualify for cross-country chargeability, due to which I am able to file I-485. (my PD is Jan-2013, current PD of China is in September 2014).

Apparently, as the current situation with H1 extensions doesn't look so good, I want to see if I can delay filing my extension till October so, by the time the H1b is processed at USCIS, I would have had a chance to file for I-485 also.

Do you see any issues with going this route? Are there any good reasons why I should stick with normal filing? Please help me out!

In my opinion, stick to normal processing and make changes later.

Doing that adds few months to you getting GC in hand but it doesn't look like a manipulated process followed to obtain a GC via marriage to Chinese Citizen.

Once again, my opinion has no legalities but only assumptions.
