Reason for denial was not my case. USCIS refered a case, which was for immigrant visa

- the applicant filed a PP which had a different location from LCA

- the applicant didnt have a BE degree

So I was denied that I fall under the same case. But I have my LCA approved for change location as well, I have a BE degree and my case was for non immigrant visa.

Still waiting for an update.

Hi Guys,

I am also in similar situation. My H1 got denied last year due to Emp-Emp relationship not satisfied(don't have client letter).

After that I applied for motion to reopen on Nov12th with all required docs on

Dec 12th my status got changed to initial review and it was in the same status since then, can some one tell me how much does takes for USCIS to get a decision( when I checked the USCIS website..it says 3 months for MTR nd 6 months for appeal).

My only concern is can we expect a result from USCIS or doesn't gonna stay in same status forever.

Thanks in advance.

My H1B for 2014 got denied as there were documentation error and I am on my L1B visa which got expired on April 2013, but I94 is valid till Nov 2015.  H1B denial reason was "preferred position does not require specialty Occupation Worker. SOW submitted by Employer does not identify the beneficiary as required for this particular assignment".

 

Let me know the best possible option which I could prefer

 

1) My employer suggests me to appeal H1B denial with the client letter and latest SoW. This process would take 5 to 6 months time period.  I want to know the success rate of appealing an H1 denial.  Is that a feasible solution? Will there be any impacts in my any further USCIS processing because of this appeal.

2) I can wait until april 2014 to apply H1 for year 2015. Will there be any impacts on due to my H1B denial.

3) I could initiate a green card processing for this year.  Whether there will any impact on the Green Card processing due to my H1B denial.  I want to know whether GC processing can be initate first of all.  If I apply for GC processing what should I do after Nov 2015. As I less knowledgable on GC processing, let me know what options are left out.

 

Appreciate your earlier response on my case and let me know if you have any other options.
