Would my stay on H4 visa be counted against the 6 year limit of H1B visa ? So basically after I take a break for 1.5 years can i transfer back to H1B visa with validity to work for another 1.5 years?
Yes you may change status from H4 to H-1B. Your time outside the US and your time as H4 do not count against the 6 years.See question

If your RFE was dated July 7, 2015, then it may be too late for this feedback. You should have responded by now. But generally there is a specific format you want to provide the documentation in, and depending on the source of income, the Form I-864A may or may not be needed. You did not say if the intending immigrant's income was lawful income, and you did not say if the petitioner is a spouse.See question

Assuming your school has accepted you and issues an I20, and you meet all other eligibilities, yes, you may obtain another F1 to study in the states. There is no adverse effect from not finishing your work in the US.See question
My sister has been issuing B1/B2 visa two years in the row 2013 and 2015.She plans to change her current visa to F1 before her B1/B2 visa expired (july 2016).I learned that it wasn't a problem to do so before September11, 2001.However, it could be...
Yes, as long as she is accepted into a qualifying university and is issued an I-20, and assuming she can provide other evidence to support her request to change status to an F1, and she timely files for change of status. But the key is not changing status before the B1/B2 visa expires in 2016; rather, the change of status to F1 must be filed before the B1/B2 I 94 expires. That is a very different date from the visa expiration date.
If you don't understand the requirements for an F1, you should schedule an appointment to speak with an attorney to discuss the details regarding eligibility.
Good luck (to your sister).See question
I am from Iran and if I leave the US I need to apply for visa which takes 3-6 weeks. I am searching for any possible way to get some works done to expedite the entry visa process or get advanced parole before leaving the country.
Hi - what you described is not what an advance parole is for. Yes, if you want to travel and return on your H-1B status you will need to get a visa if you do not have one already.See question
Hi, my fiancé and I filed for a K1 Visa. We may have been too honest and stated in the form that we met through a popular dating site, based out of Australia. The USCIS, now issued an RFE, wants proof that it's not marriage broker, and states tha...
Hi there, there are specific criteria of what is an IMB and not every online dating cite is one. But not knowing what was this site from Australia through which you met your fiance, or its business operations mission, it is difficult to advice here what exactly you need to provide to USCIS to properly respond to the RFE.
There is also a specific list of things you should have provided with the I-129F petition because you answered "yes" to the question if you met your fiance through an IMB. That you met and lived together does not alleviate USCIS'S concerns. Under the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act, USCIS is is concerned with the protection of the foreign national (else where under different regulations it is concerned about potential marriage fraud, but not so much under the IMBRA). Go ahead and respond to the RFE but as recommended by others already, do so with the help of an experienced attorney.See question

Hi--so your questions are very fact specific and you might be better off discussing the details with an immigration attorney on the immigration subjects. You also have other non immigration subjects that you may want to direct to those specialists.
If your wife is already married to you chances are she's not going to be granted another B1/B2 visa to enter the U.S. She's going to have to demonstrate strong evidence of non-intent to file for adjustment of status while in the US.
The prenuptial agreement generally won't hurt your immigration case.
You will need to sign an affidavit of support.
Re what she may be entitled to as community property in California you really need to speak with a family law attorney.See question

If the advance parole is from pending I485 then it is generally not a problem, based on the facts you disclosed (ie barring other inadmissibility issues).See question

No. The I-864A is not necesssary, if all you say is true and the joint sponsor's own income qualifies.See question
