Better to discuss these questions with your employer/ attorney rather posting in online forums. You are a Master's graduate; you must know most of the answers. They are in quite plain English.

Thanks for your reply......I understand that it is in plain english, I posted in online forum to check if anyone else had similar query, what their approach was and what was the processing time after the query was answered. My employer and attorney are working on it, but they are analyzing it in more details to avoid the chances of denial and my attorney said they are working on other clients who have deadlines lot earlier than mine. So, I just wanted to get some information from someone who already gone through all this.
