    If issue arises with I485 while i EAD, that would a big headache of replying RFE or opening MTR etc in timely fashion. EAD/AP stand cancelled if 485 is denied.

    Evaluate the odds of 485 denial and then take a decision (H1/EAD). Just don't get into analysis/paralysis mode.

    Thanks lazycis for ur time to reply. is it must to fill I-9 form again to use with EAD even for the same employer. My attorney says continue as it is. mm.. confusing..

    Btw, one more quesitons, for my son, I-485 status says Application rejected bcoz of incorrect fee (but attorney already sent correct fee !!) and I got I-131 AP for my son. Does that mean, USCIS accepted my sons I-485 application?.
    Thanks lot again.

    That is exactly what we want the house members to know. Our lives are on hold; my wife cannot work, and I cannot move!

    Also, a BIG THANK YOU for distancing ourselves from the H1B quota issue that the industry is after. That will get us nowhere in the house that struck it down last time from their bill.

    Keep up the good work!

    1. Is it mandatory for USCIS to send the NOID/RFE for employer revoked I-140? (if the candidate is invoked AC21)

    2. Can we retain the I-140 after submission of new employer's offer letter and pay stub?

    3. If previous employer revokes I-140, when will the USCIS send NOID/RFE?

    4. When will the employee know about the revocation in general (how many days)?

    5. If one re-joins the previous employer after two months, can the employer cancel the revocation of I-140 or re-validate the I-140?

    I would really appreciate for your valuable suggetions and answers.

    Regards and thanks for your help

    Going back home is the only backup streategy. Probably everybody who is not contributing to IV, is depending on this backup plan.


    I dont want to sound pessimistic but do we think its necessary that we have to have some backup plan if the CIR bill gets into the mess it got into last year because of amnesty given to illlegal.

    The WORST SUFFERERS will be LEGAL IMMIGRANTS who are at the mercy of this illegal immigrants bill.Do you people think that we need to discuss atleast (the IV core group) the back up strategy if the CIR gets into grid lock as it happened last year.

    I think its worth a discussion.People any ideas.?

    Hi, Thanks for your reply.
    Also by any chance is "alien receipt number" same as the A# that appears
    in my old OPT-EAD? If yes then perhaps I can use that? I know that
    "A#" is called "alien registration number".

    Thanks, Mtsaha

    it's the A# in your 140 approved petitioin.
    Generally spouses won't have this until they get the 485 receipt so they can leave it blank in the 485 application but the principle applicant should have from the 140.

    I am moving/transfer to another state within the same company in same position within US. My 140 is approved and 485 filed on July 2nd, 2007 My question:

    Would my transfer affect my 485 processing. If yes, is there a solution?

    this is ridiculous. It doesn't really matter whether english or anything else is the main language here. As long as the driver is driving properly and follows the road signs properly, why should the police care whether the driver can read? Maybe the driver just memorizes everything, maybe the driver knows it by advanced electronic devices, telepathy, or miracle, whatever, who cares?

    I got the e-mail that card prodn. is ordered. Not sure if i'll get one year or 2 years EAD renewal now. I filed in Nebraska center. I called USCIS and asked them but they are not sure either.. I hate to miss out of 2 yr EAD just 'cos it got approved today but not Monday. Is there any way to appeal for a 2 yr EAD ????

    I think it is 2 years for approvals that occur after June 30th. Which means yours might be a 1 year deal

    It is good to carry all possible documents. However for extensions they just check the I-797 along with the DS-156 and 157. They did not ask any other document. Hope this helped. Regards - MP70.

    As far as possible, I would strongly suggest to stay away from small consulting companies. These typically pay you only when you are on project and that too after taking a huge cut from your billing rate. For e.g. it is very common for such a company to bill $80-100/hr i.e. $160-200K annually for an employee but pay the employee between $50-70K only.

    Also I have heard horror stories of delayed payrolls, h1 not being given to employee fearing that the employee might change jobs and so forth.

    However if you are strong of heart, and can negotiate well, you might be able to make more money. For e.g. if you already have EAD, you are not bound to them. Thus you can always say that you want 80% of billing rate or else no deal. :)

    THANK YOU VERY VERY MUCH FOR PRECISE REPLY BUEHLER but am I not within my legal right to work for any hospital branch because they are all with one name.

    My final question would be YES I was told that I will have a new ID and new payroll number and a separate paycheck but what can be done to rectify this situation. Like do they have to amend the H1B petition(mine is a non-cap hospital--- a charity hospital).

    My H1B stipulates that I am a full-timer with 40 hrs per week but starting from next week it is going to be 32 sometimes and 40 hrs some weeks as we are not seeing many patients into our hospital due to the economy,jobs etc.

    What is the solution. Do I have to move to a different job or can there be a solution to work for the same company (in different branches)

    First assume that you are talking about the same company, so that you get one paycheck, one W2, etc.

    Your H1-B job must match what is specified in LCA. In particular, LCA is location specific. If you work in a different location (and no longer work in the old location), you need a different (ameded) LCA. If you want to work in two locations, you need to file an amended LCA that lists both locations.

    Now, if the two "branches" are different entities (i.e., you are going to receive different paychecks, W2's etc.), you need two H1-B's. File a second "concurrent" H1-B for the second position, and you will be good. The concurrent H1-B will be cap-exempt.

    just wondering
    How gaining so much experience or education is possible in such a short amount of time?
    No , I'm not jelous or anything. Please don't misunderstand.
    EB1 requires very high education. Right?
    just wondering. I 'm ready to work hard. Just need direction?
    How people do it. Do they take a MBA/PHD?

    Is it possible to transfer H1 from company A to B after I-140 approval and H1- 3 year extension and continue the GC process (apply for I-485 when date becomes current) with company A provided company A has no objections?
    Continuiing GC process does not mean just filing I485 , you need to apply labor and when filing 140 apply to recapture old PD , and , then file 485 if dates are current.

    My wife got it stamped twice in Delhi....there were no issues as her application does not mention any 485 filing......

    You can only file for her adjustment once her waiver requirements have been met....until then she has nothing to do with your application.

    Once her waiver requirements have been met and your PD is current she can file her I-485application as an "accompnying spouse".

    Now there has been some difference of opinion as per different answers I have received on forums from Murthy and Ron Gotcher. As per Murthy the I-485 can only be filed once the waiver is complete but as per Ron AOS can be filed once the waiver is approved. In the latter scenario she can make use of EAD and AP benefits but her final AOS will only be approved upon waiver completion. (Both the above scenarios are obviously only possible if your date is current.....:eek:)
    If any of you guys find out whichever of the above scenarios is correct then please update the thread......even though with the PDs sitting in dark ages I do not think the above situation will really matter in my case.

    Above is just my opinion. Please consult a reputed immigration attorney as every case is different.

    Thanks for your response. I understand the process for J1 waiver and I have PD of Oct 2007 and hence not worried about including her in my 485 for now.

    I'm more worried along the lines of her J1 visa stamping and problems at port of entry while returning to US. Since USCIS knows that I'm planning to immigrate to US (due to I-140) will they ask any questions or make her life difficult or reject her visa while stamping.

    Did you wife go through J1 stamping when your I-140 was approved? Can you also provide your email id to know more about J1 waiver details in your case and how you handled it. It would be useful for us in another 3 years :-)

    04-30 01:25 PM
    Your wife's status should not be an issue if you are on H1, whether with your current employer or new employer. Do not use EAD until your wife has filed for 485 or is on her independent visa like H1, L1, F1, etc.

    11-06 08:31 PM
    You cant use to port date after using AC21 ,your job responsiblities need to be same or of smiliar nature so u cant interfile as EB2 job responsiblities will differ. Porting of dates always carries risks more checks more documentations.

    If I stay with my GC sponser, can I then port the date? If so, when am I free to leave the company? Is it after the EB2 I140 is approved?
