  5. 1. Check this post from murthy - https://www.murthy.com/2014/04/02/selective-service-and-eligibility-for-u-s-citizenship/#:~:text=The requirement for Selective Service,other “lettered” temporary classifications. "The requirement for Selective Service registration does not apply to lawful nonimmigrants in a temporary status. This includes students, diplomats, tourists, H1B workers, J-1 visitors, and those in other “lettered” temporary classifications." 2. They will go over your form during interview. Once they come to citation question you can tell them about the ticket, they will add comment on the form and that is pretty much to it.

    Interview questions

    I would not stress about this too much. They may ask questions about your documentation, jobs, roles and responsibilities and employers. They go over your form and make comments about the answers you give. They may ask for tax documents. Overall it is easy process unless there is you have complex history. Good luck to you.
  7. Requires new perm to file I140 as previous one has expired.

    EB3 Filing date retrogression

    You are covered if USCIS accepts the application. Hope there are not obvious mistakes (like incorrect amount check etc.) in your application as USCIS rejects such applications upfront and you cannot refile as date is no longer current.

    Can i work when my 1-485 is pending

    You need EAD to work.

    i485 with new employer

    You need new perm/I140 approved before you can file I485 with new employer. One can file as long as their filing dates are current.
  11. She will file her 485 application as derivative applicant provided dates are current. If your 485 gets approved prior to marriage or before she arrives to US then you have will have different problems.

    Child born in New Zeland

    Her country of chargeability would be India as well.
  13. File for I-485, along with EAD and AP and then continue working on EAD.

    Downgrade to EB3 from EB2 with AOS Filling

    This was not about EB2 to EB3.... Question was "To get EB3 I140 and get EAD, is there any risk of loosing EB2 I140? If we loose now, can we file again EB2 I140 later stage if EB2 I140 goes faster? " So can you switch back to EB2 (or move up) after you moved down to EB3 by just filing new I140 and answer is no to that and would require new perm.

    Downgrade to EB3 from EB2 with AOS Filling

    Note that: Once a PERM application is certified (approved) by DOL the employer must file an I-140 Immigrant Worker Petition with the USCIS within six months of the approval date of the PERM application. So in case if you need to file EB2 I140 then you would need to start from fresh perm.
  16. Not a problem... she will get it sooner or later. Nothing to worry.

    Wrong priority date on I 485

    What is your PD on I-140?

    Interview / Oath Date - Travel

    1. Many USCIS field office do interviews and separately schedule Oaths. That is field office specific practice. 2. Oath can be scheduled between 4 to 12 weeks after interview. Though there is no clear guidelines on this. This is based on the scheduling and availability of the slots. 3. You should be able to get Oath date changed. 4. Local passport offices can issue passports on the same day if you go there with the tickets and explaining travel emergency. You can also request expedited processing for a fee which you can get in two weeks. 5. After the Oath you cannot travel using Indian passport and you would have get renunication ASAP. Traveling without renunication is subjected to fines. I would enquire with Irving, TX field office if they schedule the Oath same day as interview or not. They should be able to provide timelines for Oath scheduling for your dates. Based on that you can plan the things.
  19. Just wondering - are you not planning to take citizenship? That way once parents becomes citizens, minors would get it implicitly.
  20. I would take an infopass appointment because there have been cases where online status shows case in process but application was approved internally but never made it to mailing department (happened with me and many others about 10 years back). Did you notice if the Last Modified Date updated on your wife's case which should be similar as yours? If that is the case and online status has not been changed then most likely it is the same issue that I talked about earlier and infopass appointment should be able to resolve it. If this is not the case then you need to talk to lawyer because if her I-131 was not approved prior to travel then the I-485 may be considered as abandoned and may get rejected.

    H1B to L1A for EB1

    https://www.uscis.gov/working-united-states/permanent-workers/employment-based-immigration-first-preference-eb-1 You must have been employed outside the United States in the 3 years preceding the petition for at least 1 year by a firm or corporation and you must be seeking to enter the United States to continue service to that firm or organization. Your employment must have been outside the United States in a managerial or executive capacity and with the same employer, an affiliate, or a subsidiary of the employer. So you are not qualified as it is more than 3 years since you left company A.

    Short term jobs before filing N-400

    How long you were with the GC sponsoring employer?
  23. Shurap1

    Address change after filing N-400

    Why not wait till Sep 19 and then file? It would be cleaner and no file transfers would be required.
  24. Talk to lawyer, definitely issue as you were not qualified to change job under AC21. New PERM and I140 should have been filed by employer B and then 485 based on new I140 should have been filed. Your 485 approval may be revoked.
