    With new threads being created every minute, it's hard to keep track of relevant threads in "Recent Forum Posts" section of the homepage. I am not saying that some threads are irrelevant but there are bunch of threads talking about the same issue or news. Lot of members create new threads without realizing that the topic has been discussed already in some other thread. Some threads are personal in nature (nothing wrong with that) but not all members will benefit from that and so on....

    In light of that, I was wondering if there is a way for core team to identify the top 5 or so useful threads and always keep it on the top of the "Recent Forum Posts". All other threads can be displayed further down. This will just allow those top 5 threads (like for media drive, IV action items, breaking news, etc) to be visible on the homepage all the time and members will have easy access to those threads.

    I am not a webpage designer to I don't know how difficult that would be to implement but just a suggestion.

    I agree this crappy bill better not pass and is worse than retrogression. It is screwing everyone at the cost of giving amnesty to illegals. It is such a joke I would have never imagined that they would have the balls to do this, but I guess they are all politicians!!!

    They'll probably start with what Senate passes. and make some minor amendments.

    If it passes the house, conference will be piece of cake.

    Our best hope is:

    1. When senators return to the constituencies for the memorial day recess, they receive a LOT of negative feedback about CIR and enough number of senators change their minds and vote in -ve and bill fails to make out of the Senate. Likelihood: 10-20%.

    2. House of reps votes on this CIR and defeats it. Likelihood: 40-60%.

    I hope one way or another, this piece of crap fails and I happily get my GC in another 5-10 years. If it passes, I'll have to pack my bags. Amen.

    Any US postgraduate degree + 3 years prior to I-140/I-485. Read the text of the bill for more details.
    You mean 3 year experience in US no matter from where you got your masters degree or
    Only US degree + 3 years experience will get exemption?

    Recently I got laid off and I worried on how long it would take me to find a job, Here is my situation:-

    * I have a green card
    * Severance package I received is 7 months
    * Skills - MS computer science, 6 years full time experience in financial industry. SQL server 2000, C# (mid level programmer), solid communication skills
    * I live in New York, open to find a job in tri state area (or ideally would like to move to bay area)
    * I have two kids, Wife is not working
    * My salary expectations - 110k+

    Any suggestions on how to get motivated ? Every where news is really bad and there are only few openings - what are best ways to explore the opening's ? please let me know your job search experience


    Try to update your skills to the latest versions i.e SQL 2005 or SQL 2008. Try to find a job that gives a decent salary during this difficult economic times, don't have hight expected salary. I don't know your financial commitements just a suggestion. Try to contact few head hunters. Also try to join Linkedin and it is a good professional website. Some times I used to get calls through linkedin. If you are good at SQL Server you might even try as SQL developer and I think there are still few requirements in LA and southern california for sql developers. Try to upload your resume in monster, DICE or both. I am working as contractor since 2001 in USA and I always apply through Dice or Monster because my employer is not good in finding good projects as well as they won't always tell you the truth with regards to the billing rate. Always Have hope in life and this is just a temproary set back.

    Thanks for the reply.

    For me I will select "YES" to "Are you applying for same visa class that expired in the last 12 months?" but what should I select for my daughter (she 2 yrs old)?
    In VISA renewal criteria it says "First time H4 or L2 applicants under 18 years of age." do not qualify for appointment in this renewal category?
    This statement has confused me to whether to go for "YES" or "NO"?

    thanks in advance

    When they say "Continued Heavy Demand", what does it mean? Howcome there can be demand with Older Priority Dates? Labor Substitution is no longer possible so there can't be new demand with Older PD. So howcome PD goes back? Does anybody have insight into that?

    Yes, I can profess a guess, but that does not account for the statement about "A formal decision determination of the October cut-off dates will not be possible until early September"

    With all the labor certification being sold on or around June 2007, old labors started getting used up. These applications are probably trickling in during the course of the year, and may have seen a huge rush when they announced that they are going to make EB3 unavailable. Therefore, their earlier assumption that they can move forward was wrong. On the other hand, they probably totally messed up in counting the number of cases they already had on hand.

    I dont agree to the continued "heavy demand" comment. What demand? Were they accepting applications when the queue was already closed for the year? If not, there is no case of "heavy demand", unless there was a bunch of applications around Dec02-Mar03 for China but as usual they used a 3 year old to count the number applications

    If you currently have health insurance, you can continue it using COBRA in case of a layoff. With the recent stimulus bill, the premiums has been slashed by 65% for 9 months which is significant.

    Oh really It's a Great news! I don't know this.So if we loose job and use cobra a family can get Insurance for about $250-$300 for 9 months.Do you have any link explaining this to get some more info?

    Me and My friend developed a product, which is ready to launch. The product is very good and two fortune 500companies are willing to implement the product and back us up.

    Now my problem is I am on H1B working fulltime with a company and also have an EAD. At this moment I cannot leave my fulltime job. My question is , if I can be a partner with my friend in the new company we are forming( My friend is a US citizen), also will I be able to get paid ( as the developement of the product drained my pocket, this was the hope and I think we are close to reap the hardwork) . Also my wife is also on EAD , can she be the partner? Will there be any issue if I can do that.

    Please help!!

    Hi ALL,

    Here is idea. It can happen to you next week, sorry, but its possible.

    Lets say you lost your job next Friday (usually Fridays right). And getting your next job will take you another 6 months, if lucky.
    What will you do. Will you start pressing a panic button to push for reducing EB2/3 backlogs. Will you write to Obama and team then?.Will you start looking at expert atttorneys spending 1000s of $s. Will you have to return back??.

    I know some of us are unfortunate to be in the situation, not me, but who knows??.

    So, can we just imagine to be in such a situation and bring more and more attention to the new goverment. Just imagine you lost your job and in despair.
    Start writing. Dont just dream for the 11th or 13th for VB dates. Lets put some action.
    Sorry if I sound depressing, but lets act before its too late..

    What is the basis for the answers? Please provide some reference.

    I thought that answer to
    Q1: Yes they need to re do I-140
    Q2 : Regular timeframe

    Happy Scenario

    1) Once my EB2 labor gets approved, Do they have to file new I 140 again (OR) can they use the approved I 140 (EB3) to port my PD to EB2 application - No need to File for 140

    3) If they have to file I 140 again for this I 140 goes through the regular time frames (12months) (OR) since my EB3 140 is already approved my EB2 140 gets approved faster. -- They approve Faster in a month

    Not so Happy scenario and reality

    1) Once my EB2 labor gets approved, Do they have to file new I 140 again (OR) can they use the approved I 140 (EB3) to port my PD to EB2 application - You need to File for 140 after the labor approval 6+months

    3) If they have to file I 140 again for this I 140 goes through the regular time frames (12months) (OR) since my EB3 140 is already approved my EB2 140 gets approved faster. -- Takes 1+ year to get your 140 approved + you need to wait for 6 months+ to get your 485 interfile updated

    We are talking about atleast 2 to 3 years to get from EB3 to EB2 , so Please participate in IV campigns , call the representatives

    your payroll should be run against the place of your work and not your employer's state!
    This is important!!!

    If you worked in CA you need to file the same state. You dont have to file the tax for the state where your employer resides.

    Not always true, if the employer withholds tax (OP's case) for a certain state, you HAVE to file returns for that state. Even if the withholding was done in error. The only way around this is to get an amended W-2 from the employer without the withholding. I speak from experience.

    An easy way to figure this out is as follows

    1. You have to file state tax returns in the state of your residence.

    2. You have to file state tax returns in state of employment (where your employer is) IF
    the employer withheld taxes (for that state) from your paycheck. Technically, they
    shouldn't but if they do, for whatever reason, the only way you wouldn't have to file
    returns is if they amend the W-2 and give you a new one without the tax withheld.

    3. You have to file state tax returns in the state where you perform work on your
    employer's behalf (this applies mostly to consulting scenarios where an employee is
    deployed on assignments across the country and the only time you don't have to file
    taxes in the third situation is when the work performed was for a short period of time
    (less than a certain number of months, I am not sure exactly how many, but I think it is
    9 or 10 months).

    In many cases the state of residence, employment, etc. are all the same, in some cases they are not.

    One of the exceptions is states which don't have state income tax, e.g. Texas.

    Of course, having to file returns in so many states doesn't mean you pay tax to each state, usually, the total state tax you end up paying is equal to the state with the highest tax rate.

    e.g. if you lived in NJ, employer was in NY, and you drove to a client site in PA for all of 2008, you would file returns in NJ and PA, and if the tax rate in NJ was 6% and PA was 6.1%, you would pay 6.1%, the higher of the two. Of course, if your employer accidentally withheld taxes for NY, then you would have to file for NY, and if NY doesn't agree to give you your withheld money back, then the only way to get it back would be to have your employer give you an amended W-2.

    That being said, the OP should be okay since he has now filed CA taxes for 2005 and 2006. There will be a small amount of money owed to CA-Dept. of Revenue as penalty, but that should have been calculated during filing, by whoever did the OP's taxes. If the penalty wasn't paid, the OP can expect a 'bill' from CA-DOR asking for that money.

    OP, If I were you, I would look into one more thing. If you were on H-1B when you were in CA, did your employer amend the H-1B LCA to state that CA was the work location? Seeing that taxes were withheld for NJ, they might have not amended the LCA. Speak to your employer and see if that could cause any problems or if there is a way to fix that.

    Good luck,

    It is important that we make phone calls to our senators. Here is the list of senators with their phone numbers.

    Why "TSC is far better than NSC"?
    NSC sent receipts for some July 2nd already even though it received the bulk of the applications.

    Yes, I think the status is for individual applications only - as far as I know.

    If it goes with the same pace...then it may take very very long time to clear Jul 2nd - Aug 17th applications (receipt process)...unless they increse man power OR come-up with soem alternatives.....

    Anyway TSC is far betther than NSC....
