I second you , lets not create unnecessary panic

I asked the earlier guy to show us some documents or links that the law has changed. The other folks who are waiting for PORTING would be discouraged by wrong information.

There is no point...

Great - you should have told them the real reason also

If you do consulting you can explain that you negotiated higher salary based on the value that you are going to add in a particular engagement. Also you could have said that you negotiated higher...

Dont worry if you haven't done anything wrong.

Its okay to get way more than Minimum Wage. As long as you paid taxes for that why there should be issue ? "Minimum" means English word Minimum - its not the Cap or Maximum. Otherwise they would...

Its pretty normal.. just make sure the lawyer understands the deal

200/hr is probably the least I heard for such litigation lawyers. Just get your points together in a note/document and make sure that the lawyer understands what needs to be done.

That's not allowed. Your AP application stands cancelled if you leave before approval. AP is not Green Card where someone technically can send the GC that came in your mailbox.
