    H4 stamping with EAD

    Hi, I was on H1 earlier, converted to H4 in US and received EAD in US. I am visiting India and would need stamping for H4 which will be my first time for H4. As I am currently working , I mentioned my current employment details in DS-160. I am not sure during visa interview/POE , will I need to carry employment verification letter or EAD card, current paystubs are sufficient ?

    H1b Visa validity for India Travel/Atlanta POE

    You should be fine. I came on H1 twice with few months left on H1 in 2011 and 2015 but POE was LAX. In 2015, I had 7 weeks left on H1 when I got stamping in Mumbai, no question asked regarding short time left on H1 but at POE officer was insisting about further extension filed or not. I said I didn't but that would be first thing I would do immediately. But please remember I had 7 weeks left, you will have good period .
  3. Please share H1/h4 stamping exp. We are also travelling end of March and have scheduled appointment at Mumbai consulate.

    Drop box eligibility for H4 stamp

    I have question regarding eligibility for applying H4 visa stamp. I was on H1B till March 2015 and converted COS to H4 while in US. My husband is still on H1B and his visa stamp got expired on Nov 2015. Our I797 is good till 2018. My question is if we travel in next couple of months to India, then I know my husband is surely eligible for drop box ( he is still within 1 year after expiry of his visa stamp Nov 2015) but will I be applying with him together for my H4 stamp as dropbox application ?

    H-4 EADs

    Hi, You could have applied your h4-EAD together with your H4 transfer. I guess you can't apply I-765 with new I-539 receipt number. USCIS only allow either I-539/I-765 concurrent or I-539 approved. Thanks

    Multiple I-140 processing

    Hi, My PERM is currently pending and my spouse's PERM is approved. At the time of I-140 filing through spouse I would be filing 140 but my question is if my PERM gets approved through my employer, 1. Can I file 140 through my employer too? Is there any chances of rejection/void at that time ? 2. At the time of I-485 filing will I need to choose which I-140 I will be considering ? Thanks

    Multiple I-140 processing

    Thanks for reply. My employer is really fussy about my whole GC process. I don't want them to make a stand that if you are getting it through your spouse then they will not proceed with my process. and that is reason why I don't ask to attorney since attorney always listens to employer. I understand I may not be able understand previous posts and that is reason why I keep asking.

    Multiple I-140 processing

    I know at the time of I-140 filing for Spouse , I can file as dependent petition with his application. But can I file my I-140 through my employer when my PERM gets approved ? In other words , does USCIS allows two I-140 for same person one as employer based and other as family dependent ? So whenever anyone from us has current PD at the time of I-485 filling , need to give only 1 I-140 details and need to withdraw second I-140 . Is that correct ?
  10. I will be doing COS from H1-H4 soon and as per the required document I want to know will the Indian registered marriage certificate which has 2 version ( local language and English) will work ? I saw on some thread we need to get affidavit for it. Is it true ?
  11. You need to wait until your PERM and I-140 gets approved and then you will be able to file H1 extension based on I-140 approved.

    H1 to H4 and again H4 to H1

    All, My 6 years of H1 are ending in end of march and my employer delayed my Green Card paperwork so I wont be getting any extension based on PERM pending unless my I-140 is approved . Mean while I will be changing status from H1 to H4. I know for the fact I can file fresh H1 after 1 year. Does it mean I can file in April 2016 quota which will allow me to work after Oct 2016 ( if approved ) ? Are there any options besides ? Thanks

    H1B stamping within 1 year

    All, I got visa stamped in 30 Jan 2014 through employer A which was good till 10 Oct 2014. Since my employer A was technically merged to employer B, they filed new transfer petition for Employer B. I am planning to visit India in Jan 2015. Am I eligible for interview waiver program since my visa expired and stamped within 1 year of my intended travel date ? Thanks

    H1B stamping within 1 year

    Thanks jairichi. Is the following clause mentioned on ustraveldocs won't qualify me ? If I am applying for an H or L (individual) visa, my prior visa in the same classification with the same petitioner is still valid or expired within the last 12 months
  18. All, This is very urgent. My employer agreed on filling GC as long as cost is 50:50. When they know they can't ask PERM cost, they are asking me I485 cost NOW total - 6K from that $4300 due now and remaining 1700 at the time of 485 filling. I never heard of attorney ask full service charge of Green Card process at the beginning. Can anybody shed more light ? Please help

    H1B transfer - India travel

    Hi Preethi1234, My husband had similar situation last year and he had issue while visa stamping but VO finally gave him visa. In your case, you don't have to go for stamping but make sure you carry all your I797s and at POE only show Company C I797. In future, if you travel after July 2015, ideally Embassy doesn't like that we don't carry all visa stamps of all changed employers but at End Of the day, they issue you stamp based on your company C documents. But this time no issues, just show Company C I797.
  20. All, I will be applying for my re-capture time extension soon and am supposed to get it from Oct 2014 - March 2015. If I visit India sometime in January or Feb , I need to go for Visa Stamping. What are possible chances that I will get successful visa stamp based on fact my H1 is expiring in or before next 2 months. I will doing change of status from H1 to H4 after I come back in US. Thanks..

    Visa stamping during couple of months left on h1

    Thanks jairichi for reply. I really appreciate.
  22. All, I have typical common situation with my employer was delaying starting my GC in 5th year and I am into 6th year now and finally they agreed to start GC. I already checked with attorney and attorney is giving me only option to stay out of country for 5 months to meet 1 year PERM pending deadline from now which ofcourse not possible for me. My 6 years of H1 are expiring in 30 March 2015. I am wondering if anybody can give me best possible option to me so I can ask my employer do so. Please help.

    Urgent-Starting GC in 6th year

    Thanks jairichi and t75 for reply. One more question, AC-21 law allows to get extension based on PERM and I-140 approved. Do I qualify if I start GC now and file PERM say 1 sept 2014 and my visa gets expired on Mar 2015 and I go back or change my status to H4. if before 1Sept 2015 ,my PERM and I-140 gets approved, Can my employer file 1 year /3 year extension based on that ?

    PERM LCA applied after 8/20/2013, any approvals?

    Hi sr-84 , You should be hearing soon. My husband has priority date of 08/01 and he asked to provide Employee Fee declaration from Dept.of Labor on 25 March. The dates on website gives you tentative idea. When he received this declaration date on website was still June 2013. Please check with your attorney.

    PERM under Audit, possible extension

    My husband's PERM is filed in Aug 2013 and I am completing 6 years of H1 on Oct 2014. HisPERM is pending and on Mar 28 I came to know my case is into audit. I understand he will get one year extension beyond 6th based on PERM pending. But what happens at the end of 7 years? If his PERM is approved and 140 is approved in 7th year,will he get 3 years extension after 7th year?
