  1. Hi, We are faced with a very confusing situation. My husband's H1 expires on Oct 11,2013 and GC process is in progress for EB2 - currently in the 60 day waiting period by employer and labor to be applied in Aug,2013. He is planning to travelling to India in Aug 11,2013. We were under the assumption that he would get a 1 year/3 year extension after his H1 expires, whenever his Labor/I140 gets approved - lets say this is Nov,2013. We plan to use my country of charge ability(UAE) for my husband's GC(I485 stage)- assuming this stage would be mostly in Jan,2014 or Mar,2014). We recently came to understand that since EB2 for UAE has a current priority date, my husband won't be eligible for H1 extensions after Labor/I140 approval. In that case, 1. Can he use his H1 recapture time of 2 months (since he is travelling to India 2 months before H1 expires) to return to US after I140 approval - assuming his I140 is approved after his current H1 expires, that is after Oct 11,2013? If yes, is 2 months sufficient for recapture? 2. If the answer to #1 is no, how can he travel back to US for I485 application? Please help, so that we can plan to travel earlier than Aug,2013 to get more recapture time. Thanks, pridee

  3. Thanks pontevechhio! Is that true even if I have exhausted all 6 years on my H1B and I've returned to my home country?
  4. Hi, I am currently on my H1B expiring in 12 months. My employer is not applying for GC. However, my spouse's employer is applying GC for my spouse. My spouse has just 6 months left on H1 and labor is yet to be filed. So we are expecting to travel back if Labor and I-140 doesnt get approved by then. I was born and brought up in UAE and currently I'm an Indian citizen with Indian passport because my parents are Indian citizens. My spouse was born in India. 1. Can my spouse apply labor and I140 under my country of birth(UAE) instead of India and speed up the labor process? 2. Or is this applicable only once I140 is approved? 3. At what stage can I be added on to my spouses GC application? What category of family will I be under (I'm trying to under the family categories similar to EB1 ,EB2 etc)? 4. Or at what stage is my country of birth applicable or useful for GC? 5. Also where can I find the current priority dates for UAE - both employee based and family based? Please help or advice since we are running out of time. Thanks
  5. Thank you for responding! So if PERM is pending for more than a year do I file a new H1 in the April slot or just extend my current H1?
  6. Hi, My H1B is in its 6th year and expires on Oct,2013(8 months left). I have been offered job by a new employer. If my new employer files for GC, what are my options? 1. How long does Perm ,1-140 take for approval from application? 2. Do I have to go back to India on Oct 30, if perm and I-140 doesn't get approved before Oct,2013? 3. How long before Oct,2013 should perm and I-140 be approved in order to be eligible for H1 extensions for the 7th year? 4. Will I have to go to India if Perm and I-140 is approved before Oct,2013? Please advice.
