Team, I entered US on H4, on 03/20/2016 and that H4 visa is valid till 11/09/2017. An employer sponsored H1B for me and it got approved yesterday. I gave notice to my employer and am resigning in a few days as I am expecting a baby and want to t...
Are both the visa and the I-94 valid until 11/09/2017?
Did the new employer file a COS for you?
Are you a Canadian citizen?
I suggest that you have a Skype consultation with an attorney, CBP may not be too happy with a quick COS from H-4 to H-1 and a trip to Canada.
Why not file a COS from H-1 to H-4 instead of traveling to Canada?See question
Hi, I recently applied for re-registration of TPS from Nepal. How long does USCIS normally take to take decisions on these kind of cases?
It can take many months ... especially with Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Years and the Inauguration happening.See question
Hi, my father has been visiting us on B1/B2 visitor visa. He was issued a 3 year B1/B2 visa and the original i94 was issued for 6 months and expires in 3 weeks. His travel arrangements arrangements are such that his return flight is 2 months afte...
Why is is return flight scheduled for 2 months after his I-94 expires ... did you/he change the dates after he arrived?
Yes, his quick trip to Canada will be interpreted as an attempt to extend (or get a new) I-94.
CBP is on the lookout of this pattern of behaviour.
What country is he from?
Why can't he just go home and return to the US at a future date?See question
I was working with a company, big MNC for past two years in India. Though I was employed in India most of my team was in US. They got me sponsored for O1 visa and brought me to work in US on O1 visa. My O1 was approved in July2016. I have been p...
What is your question?
You say that you were terminated w/o reason ... I see a reason "your role does not exist" anymore.
You were offered a generous 3 month severance pay package ... what more do you want?See question
I am a professional male U.S. citizen, in long-term relationship with a 34 year-old Mongolian woman. She has 10-yr B1/B2 visa expiring 07/07/2020 allowing 180 day visits. We want to maximize time she spends in U.S., without causing problems compro...
You say that she hasn't worked in the US .... does this mean that she doesn't 'fire up' a computer, nor 'blog' while she's in the US?
As for maximizing time ... I always recommend that a person stay outside of the US for an equal, or greater, period than they spent in the US.
Thus, coming back to the US only 2 months after having been here for 6 months is 'pushing' things.
Developing a better long-term strategy is a great idea, many of us use Skype for this type of consultation service. Click on an attorney's name and follow the links to send a message/e-mail.See question
My 81 year old mother has green card and an expired re-entry permit. She intends to come back to the US now. Can she come without applying for SB-1 or reapplying for IR5? I heard about CBP entry but don't know how it work. Can someone explain? ...
You forgot to tell us how long she has been outside of the US.See question
I applied for my N-400 around June and went for my finger print on July 18th, I haven't heard back from them since, and I am curious about why it's taking so long, or is it normal to wait this long? Should I call them?
Six months doesn't seem 'so long' to me.
Sure, you can call. But, keep in mind that 8-12 months is the 'norm' in most CIS offices ... especially when Thanksgiving/Christmas/New Year 'looms' on the fore-front.See question
It has been more than two weeks since I sent my TPS renew application package (priority mail w/ tracking). My tracking shows that they have already received it but I haven't heard from them. I also filled g-1145 form so, I can get electronic messa...
This is a good example of how things are never constant when dealing with CIS. How long it took 'last time' will almost never be the same 'this time.'
If you have USPS tracking proof ... relax ... you might not hear until sometime next year .... yes, people in the government take vacations and their workload gets backed-up.See question
Hi there! Being subject to the 2 year rule of J1 requires you to be physically located in the home country for two years. However, are you allowed to travel to the U.S. during that time for vacation (visa waiver/ESTA) or B1/B2. I am aware that ...
Yes, you can apply for the B (don't try ESTA). As long as you can convince the US Consular Officer that you have strong ties to your homeland, they will probably grant the visa for SHORT vacations in the US.See question
My daughter is a Canadian citizen, born and raised in Canada.
You must wait for her to become a US citizen and then she can sponsor you.See question
