I worked for a company since 9/23/2013/ to 9/22/2014, and I stayed the united state right before the extention date. I came back my hometwon and tried to apply for the new 1-20. My college told me that your SEVIS record was never updated with those details, which means it looks like you were never employed. So I would like to know what to do to fix this situation.
The University for which you were attending classes last must decide whether he can correct your record at SEVIS. If the ISO refuses to do so, then the record indicates that you made the mistake. That is, the record indicates that you engaged in unlawful employment.
These are rather frustrating situations. It is important to maintain contact with the international student official at your school. Many schools have difficulty undoing the damage done.
When option is reinstatement. However, the school have to take action in the process can result in a decision. However, without an appointment with acompetent and experienced immigration attorney, we don't have all the facts. There may be additional information that could prove helpful in resolving this matter. Good luck.
This is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.
Get your college to update the SEVIS record to show your OPT employment, then file form I-539 requesting reinstatement. Consult with an immigration lawyer so that your case can be examined in detail to confirm that this approach will work.
I am afraid if the collage is playing hardball there is nothing you can do but find another college to attend.
