My company will start my Permanent Residency procedure next month. They will have to start the whole procedure from scratch as they couldn't find a similar application to fast forward the PERM process. My 6th year of my h1b expires on Aug 31st 20...
As long as that ETA 9089 Form for the application of labor certification on your behalf is (electronically) FILED/ACCEPTED by DOL at least 365 days prior to your H-1B's final expiration date, you will be eligible for the 7th year extension of your H-1B status.
Once the PERM is approved and the employer files that obligatory I-140 petition with USCIS within no later than 6 months of receipt of the Labor Certification, certified by DOL, then you will be able have your H-1B extended in (up to) 3 year increments at a time, until such time as your LC priority date is "current" for the country of your birth and you are able to finally file for and ultimately "adjust status" in the US or consular process abroad.See question

1. Individual applicants represented by a (reputable) attorney are always treated with much more courtesy and respect by USCIS. That's a proven fact.
2. Only the court certified final case disposition document. No need for anything else.See question
Hello I currently have an (I) visa for media usage but I am in the process of applying for an ESTA for a holiday to the states in September. I have come to the box where it asks if I have ever been denied a visa. My first (I) visa was denie...
Sorry to be the harbinger of bad news, but an individual who has been previously denied a visa at a US consulate, no matter when and/or "how" or why no longer qualifies for applying for ESTA certification and traveling to the US without a visa on the Visa Waiver program.
I know, I know... The "punishment does not fit the crime", but that's what happens when a Visa Waiver country citizen applies for an actual visa at the US consulate and is denied - loses "ESTA privileges" for the rest of her/his life. Unfair.
Consequently, you now have no other choice but to apply for a B-1/B-2 visa at either the London or Belfast US consulate.See question

I live in the US and he lives in Mexico we want to marry in mexico but will he be able to come home with me to the us?
The simple answer is "no" and not for at least a year, if not (much) more.
If you are a US citizen, consider the Fiancee Visa option, will bring him here faster than a marriage-based petition.
Consult with an experienced lawyer in private over a teleconference or Skype to properly learn the procedure, options available to you & best way to attain your objectives.See question
He came to visit me and my husband in USA.
Attorney Carpenter gave you excellent advice. Follow it, and better yet, since both of you are in the same town, Boston, consider hiring him.See question
I cant find adequate information on which visa is best for me. A few details about my case: 1. I previously had a 10 year b1/b2 visa but never actually traveled to USA. This visa expired in Jan 2016. 2. I started my own proprietorship business...
Certainly not, as running an online sales business while in the USA on either a J-2 or H-4 visa, without a work permit from USCIS will constitute unauthorized employement in violations of the terms of ONE's visa and could land you in removal proceedings.
Note, however, that on J-2 visa you will most likely be eligible to apply for and obtain a work permit.. You will then be able to conduct any business you wish,, as self employment is allowed when have work permit.See question

Will make no difference whatsoever one way or the other if your girl friend can obtain her own I-20 and F-1 visa and can show can meet her study and living expenses while in the USA.See question

No "disadvantage" or "impairment" whatsoever. The law does not require the beneficiary of a permanent "EB" job offer (which is for the future anyway) to have ever lived in the USA or to be present in the USA in whatever capacity during either the Labor Certification and/or I-140 immigrant petition process.See question
