I got my approval after RFE. i posted my H1b extension experience so others can get some information 

 

 

Hey Kmnr,

Appreciate your post in this forum, you were one the few ones who have posted some positive news on able to clear the RFEs with "Specialty Occupation" ( along with other RFEs). Based on your post i am assuming your experience and Education evaluation helped you in addressing the concern ?

Thanks

For question 22 in i765 if we enter old approved i 797 receipt number then isnt it they will extend for only that time which i already have h4 ead. I want to file extension of h4 ead concurrently with h1b extension.  Dont have h1b receipt number so what you will enter in this situation for question 22 in i765 form. 

 

Thanks in advance.

i had the same doubt while filling the i765 form. My Attorney mentioned that we need to enter the existing h1b receipt number as we do not have new receipt numbers. as per attorney, when EAD is filed concurrently, uscis will be aware of this and provide ead extension based on new h1 and h4.

I entered old H1b details and new H4 and EAD has proper extensions; do not leave it blank

Thanks and all the best

Hi @kmnr, congrats on your approvals - must have be a pretty worried time period but very nice of you to share your experience here.

I am aware of education evaluation but curious to know how you and/or your employer went about "Technical evaluation". Did u guyz use a third party agency or something like that or your 13+ years experience help the justification? Could you please share if u are comfortable to? Thanks

I got similar RFE's in the past for education, work etc.  My attorney used third party for getting the Technical evaluation. My work evaluation is done for my previous experience for 5 years as it seems uscis will not consider current work letters/evaluation. Fortunately i have all the letters related to my technical work and software development

Technical evaluation

University professor did my work evaluation. I have submitted my previous company letters on my software development skills and technologies i have used and learnt over the years; these letters are not typical joining/relieving letters they are pure technical work related. Based on these letters, professor evaluated my experience, skills against computer software courses and job requirement. Current client also provided me with letters related to my software development work. i believe these letters helped me to clear the Specialty occupation

All the best..

That was very useful, thanks and much appreciated. I am not in need of a technical evaluation as I had recently got my extension done without any issues. But was curious to know and also it could be useful to someone else who doesn't have any knowledge about it like me. Didn't know we could try approaching a qualified university professor for something like this. Thanks.
