  1. "Starting in January, applicants who file Form I-90 to replace an expiring Green Card will receive the revised receipt notice in the mail approximately 7-10 days after USCIS accepts their application.

    Relocate and Retain PD when GC Date Current

    Change to Consular Processing and you will possibly get a year's leeway or more as they deal with the backlog of Immigrant Visa Interviews. Once you have the IV approval, then you have 6 more months to enter the USA. You should involve one lawyer and retain him and then discuss all aspects of your situation.

    Is my h1 valid for 6 years without 1st stamping.

    You will be eligible for 6 years minus the time you spent in H1 status starting any time and not subject to a lottery. You can also opt for the lottery to give you a fresh 6 years in H1 status.

    Using I-485 EAD when on H4

    She can work based on the EAD through I-485. Why would she need an H4 status?
  8. Get your own lawyer involved and soon. Maybe the firm of Murthy or any of your choice. It is not as trivial as you think. It is possible to correct the matter though difficult. You may also like to ask the Office of Senator Cantwell or Murray for help, in addition after first consulting your own lawyer.

    Get an appropriate letter from your employer which states you are coming back to join them. What you did outside is not relevant.

    L1 to H1 transfer

    You cannot enter H1 status unless you have started work for the initial sponsor or got a visa stamp based on the initial approval. Hence a COS to H1 will not be possible. No harm in giving C all the facts and see what happens.

    Change of Status from H4 to F1

    You can apply as soon as the I-20 is issued, I suspect up to 6 months before the start. The COS can only be approved up to one month before class. You should touch base with the Admissions dept. to answer most of your questions. Yes, You can study in H4 status should you wish. Look at the admissions site/department site/university site. Usually, they have FAQ'S answering most questions. This may also help Changing to a Nonimmigrant F or M Student Status | USCIS
