Lalitha,

If your employer comes under the cap exempt category (non-profit, educational institutions) then your H1 will be approved with immediate effect and you can start working as soon as you receive the approval notice. Otherwise, your H1 will be approved with a start date of Oct 1st. In this case, you cant work until that date.

Angry ITIN Number and H4 to H1 conversion

Will my application selected if I get my ITIN number? I clearly understand that it is for Tax purpose, but as it also comes from the same department I am bit curious to know about it.

ITIN number is issued by IRS (Internal Revenue Service). H1B is issued by USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services). IRS comes under Treasury Dept., USCIS comes under the Homeland Security. Don't see how the two are the same - other than being different branches of the govt.

Having an ITIN number will not qualify you for a H1B automatically. You can get an ITIN number even if you are not in this country legally. As of today, IRS cannot share it's information with anyone - not even the police. As per IRS, even a thief must file income tax and the thief can take deductions for the tools he buys to carry out his trade

Default Question about options in F1/H4/H1

I am currently on H1B visa. My understanding is that as long as my H1B is thru my employer it is perfectly legal to start/buy/partner in a company .... as long as I do not withdraw a pay check from that company. Furthermore, as long as I am maintaining my legal status thru my American employer, it would be legitimate to sponsor an H1 for my wife, hire her in the company I own. If some one could clarify ..... is my understanding flawed ? Please provide examples/experiences. Any relevant input would be great.

Another related question was if I change my status after starting my company to F1 .... would that be fine ? Or after I change my status to F-1, would it be fine to start my own firm/company/partnership/practice (PA/LLC/PLLC) and then transfer my wife's H-1 B in this newly created entity. FYI .... This new entity would be perfectly legitimate PA/LLC/PLLC with solid revenues/earnings/5-10 american employees .... and my wife would be fully qualified to work in this entity as a highly compensated employee providing US govt with a lot of taxes .... all done by my savings AND/OR bank loans.

On another note, if I change my status to H4(dependent on my wife's H1) instead of F1, would the same hold good. My wife's full time H1 B would be thru an american employer. My PA/LLC/PLLC just sponser her part time H1 (2nd H1) .... you guessed it .... to start her permanent residency process. FYI .... Both of us are waiting for priority dates to get current to file I-485 .... both of us have I-140 approved from our respective employers as of now. This is an attempt to get out of their yoke and gain freedom as much as possible in these trying circumstances.

Gurus, your expert opinion would be invaluable. Please comment.
