    I saw a thread somewhere that instructs how to call IO. This is my first call to any Immigration Office.

    I had replied to RFE two weeks back and did not get any updates online.
    That is why I called.

    The officer told me my application is with the officer. I have no idea what that means. He asked me my receipt number and I gave him the WAC#.

    Let me know if you have questions.

    Thanks

    Guys I have a question.....do you only require transit visa while coming back to US through London from India (because you don't have a valid visa stamped on your passport). If you are traveling from US to India via London transit visa is not required as AP holders from India have a valid visa (Indian Passport in this case) for their destination country.

    Because my flight from US to India is through London but while coming back I am flying through Qatar. I am on Advance Parole please let me know.

    I think getting salary regulary but salary slip after three or more months is common scenario in industry (deleberate attempt by employers, so that H1B transfer can't be filed). I have faced this music, my kid facing it and I am sure many people facing this.

    I was lucky to go about it, USCIS did not ask at the time of transfer. Need to get idea, how others have handled it. Does bank statement work in this case?

    Do you know who is processing your pay checks, is it ADP? can you get a copy from them. I always carry latest pay stubs while travelling, come up with some execuse and try to get the paystubs. You can always fight and get the situation resolved, but that is your choice.

    I once had a bad experience with a travel agent, It was hard for me to get my tickets from them, until I called the local TV networks. Once they received a call from the TV network, they issued my tickets in hours. In your case, it is going to be your call on how much you want to fight to get the situation resolved.

    I thought once your EAD gets approved then you H1 Visa is not longer valid.

    You could keep EAD and H1 together active?? Any experts, could you please throw some light?
    Yes, you can keep EAD and H1 at same time..

    Hi,

    I hope, all is well.

    I filed my applications for Green Card. I did concurrent filing for I-140 & I-485 applications in September-2007. I got EAD in December-2007 but I-140 case is still pending.

    I am working with the company which filed my Green Card but very soon I would resign from them/there as there is no work over there. They would still continue my I-140 case even I resign from there.

    I need your help as:

    (1) Can I work on 1099 (as I have EAD & I-140 is still pending)?

    OR

    (2) I need to work on W2 (means: cannot work on 1099) [as I have EAD & I-140 is still pending]?

    Please, advise me as soon as possible.
    :confused:


    Best regards,
    Rajiv

    I always thought that your I-140 *has to be* approved before you can change jobs with the AC21 rule... no?

    Personally I dont think there would be much difference between Eb2 and Eb3 going forward (with Obama\Dick durbin presidency). With Obama CIR we might be forced to reapply in points based system in which case both eb2 and eb3 are screwed. I am not sure what sort of toxic potion is being brewed by Durbin for Eb community. Atleast with Mccain we might have 4 more years of same in which case there might be some hope for both eb2 and eb3.

    I don't think there will be any surprises for the next 9 months as India and China have very limited quota per year. Besides the overflow that happens during the last quarter, I guess it is going to be a snail crawl for EB2.

    EB3 India - well, can hibernate for the next 3-4 years.

    Friends,

    I'm in a position where I have to file for I-140 again. In short, my company was purchased and I had to refile I-140 under the new company's name. Since the new company does not pay for Premium processing, I'll have to shell out the Premium processing fee from my pocket.

    I need your honest opinion as to whether I must file with premium or regular? My PD: is June 2007.

    I appreciate all your comments!

    Go for regular, the current processing time for I140 TSC is 4 months, you should be able to get approved before the next spillover season which is Jul - Sep 2011 (This is still a long shot for us :))

    Hi,

    I submitted my 485 in julyEven i applied for my wife too.....we both got EAD, AP...She left to India...we have problems and we may seperate each other...So not sure when we get divorce because of outdated Indian marriage laws...Are there going to be any problems when they are adjudicating my 485 application? Her FP done and she got AP until Sep 2008...Now what will happen if USCIS sends out an FP notice for my wife...She won't be doing finger printing...Is it going effect my GC in anyway?

    It will not affect your GC in anyway. They will send RFE for your wife when it comes for adjudication. You can reply thru your lawyer, based on your marital status at that time, the appropriate answer.

    AFAIK, if she does not come back before the date mentioned in the AP (sept 2008), she will abandon the GC application unless she has a valid dual intent visa.

    Hope things work out between you and your wife.

    Below is a draft statement i prepared and appreciate if you can review it and suggest any changes reqd if this is not convincing.

    I travelled to Tijuana, Mexico from San Diego. I entered the US Port of Entry at San Ysidro. My previous I-94 white entry card had been taken and I requested a new I-94 but since I already had a valid I-94 on my H-1B approval notice, the office would not issue a new I-94 white entry card.
    I have a copy of my previous I-94 entry card from <prev_entry_date>


    Few questions that may arise based on above statement:
    1. Why was your I94 from H1B notice still with you and not submiited at POE when you left the country?
    -Since i travelled by land the US POE is in Tijuana and so i submitted my expired I94 to them and also the valid I94 from H1B notice and asked for new white I94 card. Unfortunately the officer just stapled the valid H1B I94 to passport and told i am good to go. There is no stamp on it either and hence i am concerned.

    Any other possible questions you can think of that needs to be addressed in my statement?

    To present our case, we need facts. Like for example

    -Drop in admissions/applications/exams for US universities
    http://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/senate/news/source/intnl.grads.pdf cites "constraints on visas and immigration" are among the reasons for the decline
    http://www.usatoday.com/printedition/news/20060106/a_students06.art.htm says "Rising U.S. tuitions, increased tension between much of the world and the United States and post-9/11-related immigration issues have all fed a decline in foreign student enrollment. So, too, has heightened competition from the rest of the developed world"
    http://www.aascu.org/policy_matters/pdf/v2n11.pdf also supports that on page 3

    -Number of people on H1-B buying homes
    http://www.census.gov/prod/3/98pubs/cenbr974.pdf

    -Evidence showing H1-Bs earn similar salaries/hourly rates, as rest of the industry
    http://judiciary.senate.gov/testimony.cfm?id=913&wit_id=475
    It is hard to determine the impact of H-1B workers on comparable U.S. workers. The only comprehensive effort to date, conducted in 2000 by the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences, concluded that the magnitude of any effect the H-1B program has on wages is difficult to estimate with confidence. The report noted that the effect, if any, may not be to depress wages and employment opportunities for U.S. workers but rather to keep wages from rising as rapidly as they would if the program did not exist. Another study in 2001 similarly concluded that if the H-1B program has any effect on comparable U.S. workers, the effect must be subtle because it does not appear immediately in the data.


    -Age Pattern of the Science and Engineering Labor Force
    http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/seind04/c3/c3s3.htm#c3s3l1a Absent changes in degree production, retirement patterns, or immigration, the number of S&E-trained workers in the labor force will continue to grow for some time, but the growth rate may slow significantly as a dramatically greater proportion of the S&E labor force reaches traditional retirement age. As the growth rate slows, the average age of the S&E labor force will increase.
    And later "Taken together, these factors suggest a slower-growing and older S&E labor force. Both trends would be accentuated if either new degree production were to drop or immigration to slow, both concerns raised by a recent report of the Committee on Education and Human Resources Task Force on National Workforce "


    I am also trying to gather information about the points given below

    - Number of H1-Bs becoming US citizens (when given a chance)
    _________
    - A $$ amount of value addition of H1-Bs to the US economy
    _________
    - Number of children that are US citizens from H1-B families.
    _________

    Any help in pointing to any articles etc that you may have come across is good. Please keep in mind that these studies should have stats in them and should be recent material
    Thanks
    Sandeep

    AILA Leadership Has Just Posted the Following:



    By Eleanor Pelta, AILA First Vice President

    H-1B workers certainly seem to be under fire these days on many fronts. A new memo issued by USCIS on the employer-employee relationship imposes new extra-regulatory regulations on the types of activities in which H-1B workers can engage as well as the types of enterprises that can petition for H-1B workers. The memo targets the consulting industry directly, deftly slips in a new concept that seems to prohibit H-1B petitions for employer-owners of businesses, and will surely constitute an open invitation to the Service Centers to hit H-1B petitioners with a new slew of kitchen-sink RFE's. On another front, USCIS continues to make unannounced H-1B site visits, often repeatedly to the same employer. Apart from the "in-terrorem" impact of such visits, I personally cannot see the utility of three different visits to the same employer, particularly after the first one or two visits show that the employer is fully compliant.

    But USCIS isn't the only agency that is rigorously targeting H-1B's. An AILA member recently reported that CBP pulled newly-arrived Indian nationals holding H-1B visas out of an immigration inspection line and reportedly placed them in Expedited Removal. The legal basis of those actions is still unclear. However, the tactic is too close to racial profiling for my own comfort.

    Finally, recent H-1B "skirmishes" include various U.S. consular posts in India issuing "pink letters" that are, simply put, consular "RFE's" appearing to question the bona fides of the H-1B and requesting information on a host of truly repetitive and/or irrelevant topics. Much of the information that is routinely requested on a pink letter is already in the copy of the H-1B visa petition. Some of the letters request payroll information for all employees of the sponsoring company, a ridiculous request in most instances, particularly for major multi-national companies. One of the most frustrating actions we are seeing from consular officers in this context is the checking off or highlighting of every single category of additional information on the form letter, whether directly applicable or not, in effect a "paper wall" that must be overcome before an applicant can have the H-1B visa issued. Very discouraging to both employer and employee.

    How have we come to a point in time where the H-1B category in and of itself is so disdained and mistrusted? Of course I'm aware that instances of fraud have cast this category in a bad light. But I think that vehemence of the administrative attack on the H-1B category is so disproportionate to the actual statistics about fraud. And interestingly, the disproportionate heavy-handed administrative reaction comes not from the agency specifically tasked with H-1B enforcement�the Department of Labor�but from CIS, CBP and State. Sometimes I just have to shake my head and ask myself what makes people so darn angry about a visa category that, at bottom, is designed to bring in relatively tiny number of really smart people to work in U.S. businesses of any size. It has to be a reaction against something else.

    Yes, a great number of IT consultants come to the US on H-1B's. It is important to remember that so many of these individuals are extremely well-educated, capable people, working in an industry in which there are a large number of high profile players. And arguably, the high profile consulting companies have the most at stake if they do not focus on compliance, as they are the easiest enforcement target and they need their business model to work in the U.S. in order to survive. Some people may not like the business model, although arguably IT consulting companies provide needed services that allow US businesses, such as banks and insurance companies to focus on their own core strengths. Like it or not, though, this business model is perfectly legal under current law, and the agencies that enforce our immigration laws have no business trying to eviscerate it by policy or a pattern of discretionary actions.

    It is true that some IT consulting companies' practices have been the focus of fraud investigations. But DOL has stringent rules in place to deal with the bad guys. Benching H-1B workers without pay, paying below the prevailing wage, sending H-1B workers on long-term assignments to a site not covered by an LCA�these are the practices we most often hear about, and every single one of these is a violation of an existing regulation that could be enforced by the Department of Labor. When an employer violates wage and hour rules, DOL investigates the practices and enforces the regulations against that employer. But no one shuts down an entire industry as a result.

    And the IT consulting industry is not the only user of the H-1B visa. Let's not forget how many other critical fields use H-1B workers. In my own career alone, I have seen H-1B petitions for nanoscientists, ornithologists, CEO's of significant not for profit organizations, teachers, applied mathematicians, risk analysts, professionals involved in pharmaceutical research and development, automotive designers, international legal experts, film editors, microimaging engineers. H-1B's are valuable to small and large businesses alike, arguably even more to that emerging business that needs one key expert to develop a new product or service and get the business off the ground.


    The assault on H-1B's is not only offensive, it's dangerous. Here's why:




    H-1B's create jobs�statistics show that 5 jobs are created in the U.S. for every H-1B worker hired. An administrative clamp-down in the program will hinder this job creation. And think about the valuable sharing of skills and expertise between H-1B workers and U.S. workers�this is lost when companies are discouraged from using the program.
    The anti-H-1B assault dissuades large businesses from conducting research and development in the US, and encourages the relocation of those facilities in jurisdictions that are friendlier to foreign professionals.
    The anti-H-1B assault chills the formation of small businesses in the US, particularly in emerging technologies. This will most certainly be one of the long-term results of USCIS' most recent memo.
    The attack on H-1B's offends our friends and allies in the world. An example: Earlier this year India �one of the U.S.'s closest allies --announced new visa restrictions on foreign nationals working there. Surely the treatment of Indian national H-1B workers at the hands of our agencies involved in the immigration process would not have escaped the attention of the Indian government as they issued their own restrictions.
    The increasing challenges in the H-1B program may have the effect of encouraging foreign students who were educated in the U.S. to seek permanent positions elsewhere.
    Whatever the cause of the visceral reaction against H-1B workers might be�whether it stems from a fear that fraud will become more widespread or whether it is simply a broader reaction against foreign workers that often raises its head during any down economy �I sincerely hope that the agencies are able to gain some perspective on the program that allows them to treat legitimate H-1B employers and employees with the respect they deserve and to effectively enforce against those who are non-compliant, rather than casting a wide net and treating all H-1B users as abusers.

    1) Any time someone takes a trip outside the US for longer than a year they are taking some risk that CBP will determine that they have abandoned their permanent residence. It would probably be OK, but there is no guarantee. If someone is taking a trip for longer than one year they must get a travel permit.

    2) Anyone who travels abroad on a trip lasting more than a year must reside in the US 4 years and a day from they date they return to the US before they are eligible to apply for naturalization (2 years and a day if applying as the spouse of a US citizen). This is true even if you have a Travel Permit. However if they have been living in the US for 365 days without leaving the US after getting the green card then they may be eligible to apply to maintain their residence in the US even through trips abroad that last longer than 365 days.

    Many of us can run into these situations since we all have a long long way to go for our GCs, it will be helpful if this great secret information can be put in here so that all of us already know what to do when we hit this issue.

    well yes and no. depends on a lot of factors. If there is nothing wrong with your case, you dont have to worry.

    Only issue is - getting a denial and applying for MOTIC means spending money and unnecessary tension and if you are out of the country when you get a denial - it gets extremely complicated.

    Once preprocessed, there is no reason for USCIS to touch the files until the dates are current so hang in there. Do not stress.

    Know what is going on and be prepared.

    Playing it safe and stressing and trying to get total control over your situation will only result in added stress and not good for health.

    I would strongly recommend that people must really come forward and lobby hard for atleast a recapture bill or any other bill. We MUST all start working extremely hard to get our issues resolved and IV is a wonderful platform.

    My H1B expired in April 2008. My company is not willing to extend H1B any more due to the reason that I got EAD and I-140 approved and pending 485. Is it possible to get H1B extension from current or future company based on approved I-140? Or Is it too late?

    You might wondering why do I need H1B now. I am not sure why I need H1B. Some of my friends who had trouble in their I-140/485 were able to survive with H1B. So, it looks like it is better to have dual. H1B and EAD.

    Please advise.

    I am in the same situation as yours, (Actually my H1-B got denied)but i haven't filed for H1-B, i have inquired about it. You can file for H-1B and you are not subjected to quota . Only thing is your time towards on EAD will be counted against your H1-B. say out of 6 years of total H1-B, if you have 3 years of it and 1 year on EAD, when you apply for H1-B, you'll get the remaining 2 years. Your attorney will be able to help you out on this..Please keep us posted about the outcome and good luck..

    I thought "we are getting married soon" is implied in my post. Anyways to be more clear ..we are getting married next month i.e. December. I have recently got i 140 cleared . Next month i will have my marriage done and marriage certificate ready. Her country of birth is different that of mine i.e. not India and is current for EB-2. Could you please help me with these doubts.

    1.) I have a masters degree from USA and my employer is willing to file under EB-2. my wife is bachelors. Can i apply in EB-2 for both of us and charge it to her quota since it is current for her country.

    yes. Since your job profile seems to meet EB2 requirements and you qualify, you can file under EB2. She will be a dependent in this case, her qualifications dont really matter, the petition is based on your job and qualifications.

    2.)Would she need to be physically here in USA for filing i 485.

    for filing an adjustment of status, which is what you typically want, yes.

    3.) one of my acquaintance was telling me that the GC we get using cross chargeability is a conditonal one and not like regular GC. Is this true.?

    no. a GC through marriage is conditional, yours is through employment, so its not.

    4.)Is cross chargeability always possible or does it depend on the will and mercy of uscis.

    always possible, its the law, its not upto the discretion of the USCIS

    5.) Is it true that we might have to go through rigorous and sometimes humiliating interview processes to finally get the GC.

    no. Yours is an EB(employment based) case, you are confusing this with getting a GC through marriage to a US citizen. In that scenario people face a rigorous and indeed sometimes humiliating experience simply because USCIS does not know whether you are marrying only for the GC. (Mail-order bride - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mail-order_bride))

    6.)Does she also have to do MS to use cross chargeability and file in EB-2

    Nope, her qualifications dont matter. Think if this as a team effort: your qualifications take care of the EB2 part of things and her country of birth defines the priority date

    :) when you are in India, you are NOT on H1B status.
    So there is nothing to stop you to work from home in India, for 5 months or 5 years :)
    The paystubs during this period is also irrelevant to USCIS regarding proof of maintaining H1 status, since you were NOT. What they care at your re-entry in H1B will be existence of valid employment in USA at that time, and proof regarding this.

    So you can apply for H1 extension, get it approved, go to India, work from there for any length, return to USA based on your H1B (it has to be valid when you return, plus you may need a valid visa stamp in your passport). There are no issues.

    But be careful if you have a pending 485 petition. Long stays outside of USA can be interpreted as lack of immigration intent. You better have a good explanation if you stay outside of USA for lengthier periods, with 485 pending.

    Not exactly correct. Once, he left the US for a long period of time (except vacation) the employer should remove him from US payroll and terminate the H1B. This is the very legal way. If employer want to receive employee's service outside the US, the employer should "outsource" the work to him. In this case, both the employee and employer must follow export-import rules between two countris and pay appropirate tax in both countries.

    After employee left the US, if employer continously keeps him in US payroll using his H1B authorization for work eligibility, and receives his service or work from abord; it is the violation of LCA work place. If USCIS knows that the employer will be in trouble.

    There was no agreement signed. It was just agreed on an email. Am i still bound with the emplyment laws. Just want to understand before taking any steps. Also the project has ended after 4 month but i don't have any document. Also company B can't reveal any internal documents.

    If no agreement is signed once you receive the legal notice, take it to an attorney and respond with legal notice. Do not get scared by this thugs.

    Just let them know you are ready to handle it legaly and ask them to send legal notice. If you know any of their irregularities tell them you are going to send the complaint to USCIS.

    Just for $2 only idiots will go for legal notice and law suit. They would be spending in thousands for that. Its funny how these desi thugs thinks and threatens.
