I have been seriously discussing with several families in these three counties about being an au pair. However, one of the French families told me that I could not receive an au pair Visa because I was married. Is this true, and if so, is it true ...

I need your advice regarding - I am here in USA from Feb/2010 and my 6 years will over on Feb/28/2016 with H1B VISA. My previous company applied my PERM application and its approved on Aug/2015 . But I got layoff from that company so they...
Requesting the 7th year extension of your H-1B upon its expiration on Feb 28, 2016 will only be possible IF in the aftermath of the PERM LCA filed and approved on your behalf, the employer would have proceeded to file an I-140 immigrant petition on your behalf with USCIS. Due to the fact that the employer, which since then laid you off failed to do so, that PERM LCA automatically expired and become null and void after 6 months.
Consequently, due to the fact you presently do not have either a PERM LCA nor I-140 pending (or approved), your current employer will not be able to request the 7th year extension of your H-1B status, UNLESS that (or any other) employer had timely filed another PERM LCA on your behalf, and that was received by DOL at least 365 days prior to your current H-1B expiring on February 28, 2016, namely no later than Feb 27, 2015. Your current employer was either unable or unwilling to do so. Consequently, a 7th year extension of your H-1B cannot be sought. You will unfortunately have to depart and remain one whole year outside the US prior to being able to come back on another "tour" of H-1B period of 3 years (which can be extended for an additional 3). A new H-1B petition on your behalf will be subject to the numerical "cap" on H-1Bs and will need to have been selected by the upcoming H-1B "lottery" to be ultimately approved.See question
The background is that I had an approved, cap subject, H-1B in 2013 while I was in India and never applied for an h-1B visa and never entered the USA in h-1B status. I entered as an F-1 and started school. I got a full time job this year and have ...
You shall soon see what you shall see.. Your new, prospective "employer"'s H-1B petition on your behalf will in all likelihood be considered as "subject to the numerical cap" and rejected by the USCIS California Service Center as such, and that for two (2) reasons (I would love to be wrong on this one!):
1. You have never "activated" your previous H-1B petition approval by applying for a consular H-1B visa and come to the US & start working for that petitioning "employer" - even one single day of work on payroll would have done the trick..
2. By your own admission, your previous H-1B employer "revoked" (the correct term for that is "withdrew") the H-1B petition it previously filed on your behalf. When that happens, USCIS, upon receipt of the withdrawal notification from the employer cancels the H-1B visa number allocated to you upon the approval of the petition, and more likely than not "restored" it to the still available H-1B visa "pool" for someone else's lucky employee to use the newly released H-1B visa number. Sorry. But am sure you'll update us, soon. Best of luck!
On my head . and a fractured ankle. What kind of compensation am I going to get?
Schedule a (free) consultation with a reputable personal injury lawyer licensed in TX. Am not sure about pertinent TX law in this regard, but in California you would be compensated for all your ("reasonable") medical expenses, as well as for "pain and suffering" and any wage loss.See question
In a letter to a friend's attorney, could a question such as "could manipulation have been involved?" be claimed by a hostile party to be libelous even though the name of the suspect in question is not said or implied? Can an implied question be ...
No, cannot be used as a viable "actionable defamation claim" the way you described it, where no name is stated.See question
I have recently filed my COS for H1 to L2. Can I travel out of country now?
It's entirely up to you. If you now travel during the 3-4 months that your application to change status ("COS") will be pending for, but not yet adjudicated, you will be in effect "abandoning" that pending COS application, which will then have to be automatically denied, by operation of law. The only way to come back into the US then will be through a consular visa application at your home country US consulate.See question

You can sponsor your daughter for a "green card" under the Family based "F-2B" visa category. Unless daughter born in Mexico, Philippines, India, etc., that process will take at least 7 years.See question
I have some funds in Bank of America, and have invested in some shares in US.How long can i keep my funds and investments in US? How can i transfer my funds back to India?
Not an immigration question, but my answer is nevertheless as follows:
Since you were able to open bank accounts in the US (with your social security number, etc.), now that you possess those accounts, it is highly unlikely that they will know that relocating back to Hindustan and ask you to close them. Make sure to switch to "online, electronic monthly statements", if you haven't already done so, as opposed to receiving them by mail at your old physical address on record.
The US is (still) a free country. There are no "currency" or "transfer controls". You can transfer your funds back to Hindustan with a few clicks of the mouse from your computer at home or any remote location. It is the Hindi taxman you have to fear after that, not the US one..See question
I am green card holder and I want to apply for my divorced 22 years Daughter for immigration. Can I consider her as a unmarried category?
Yes, may definitely do so and file a petition on her behalf under the family-based F-2B visa category. Begin by filing an I-130 immigrant petition on her behalf to USCIS right away.See question
