You can ask any personal Immigration application related questions. The attorney is qualified to answer any Green card related, F1, H1, L1, Visitor visa, EAD OPT etc and even Family visa questions.

Default A quick question ! !

Pappu,

Do I need to post my question on this thread or I can pass it on before in time to StarSun or you? B'cause posting my GC issue with personal information would not look appropriate on a public forum.

Let me know.

If you have privacy concerns (you should not be as everyone is identified only by their usernames on IV forum) you can email starsun and then be available to ask it yourself in the call

Default Changing Employer after Greencard

Could you please provide more information about changing employers after getting the green card. I have not used AC21 and do not intend to switch before the GC is approved.

Thanks.

Default

Some Background:
My employer filed for my residency in 2008. Per my employer, my PD is Jan 2008 and my I140 has been approved. My 6th year on H1B will be over in August 2011.

My questions to Attorney Reddy are as follows:
1. Can I switch employers now and retain my old PD?
2. Since I do not have a copy of the I140, would the employer be able to withdraw my I140 application?
3. Will I be able to get a 3 year extension on my H1B with the new employer based on my approved I140?

Please let me know. And many thanks to Ms. Reddy for providing this great service to the immigrant community

Default Renewing h4

Both me and my wife are working on EAD.
Our AOS is pending since the July 2007 surge.
My company lawyer recently renewed my H1 (to have it as a backup) and also suggested that we renew my wife's H4.
I received my H1 approval and wife received her H4 approval.
I also visited India and re-entered USA on a new H1 stamp.
My lawyer himself is worried now whether he got my wife into H4 status since her approval in May and that since she continued working, he is worried that she technically "worked while on H4" which is not allowed, based on the last action rule.
Can you advise if we have created any issue by renewing her h4?
Also what is the remedy for this.

According to me this should be of NO issues, since a person is allowed to maintain his/her H status while AOS is pending, as per the dual intent doctrine. Also I think the last action rule is applicable within a specific category. For example when a person applies for h1/h4 at almost the same time, both are non-immigrant categories, then if USCIS approves h1 first and h4 later, then the last action rule would get applied and technically person would become h4. BUT this should not affect the AOS application since its a totally different category, thats a immigrant category.

Please advise if we did anything wrong by renewing her H4 and any solution to fix this.
