H1B amendment

Hi Rajiv -

This is regarding the recent ruling on the H1B amendment requirement for material changes in the employees work location.

- Can you please provide your inputs on how this ruling affects for employees who are already in worksites that are not listed in their original H1B petition? Since per the ruling on the USCIS website it appears that we have until Aug 19th to correct any of these retroactive changes to be compliant. However it appears that there is some potential deviation...

H1B visa stamping in Canada for researcher in US university

Jun 8th 2015
My friend is a post doc researcher in a mid-west US university and is on an H1-B work permit. She had done her BS/MS degrees in her home country and then did her PhD in that US university where she's now working as a post doc fellow.
My question is can she apply for her first H1B visa from any of the consulate offices in Canada (Toronto etc) or does she have to go back to home country in order to apply for this?
Thanks.

H1 B visa

Jun 5th 2015
Hi ,

My employer applied for H1B visa in April 2015 . Till date we have not received any update from USCIS . The attorney says that they have not received any receipt or specific update regarding my case . Also they have not received back the application from USCIS.
Does this mean my application was not picked in the lottery or could there be a delay in receiving the recipe number ?

Please help advise.
Thanks

H-3 pending

Jun 1st 2015
Hi,

I sent a request for a change of status from B2 to H3 visa. After receiving a RFE and replying back, I have been pending for a final decision for over 5 months. My B2 visa has expired 5 months ago and what I've been suggested is to leave the country and withdraw my request since I am risking the chance of staying illegally for over 6 months.

My question is - am I considered illegal as for staying over 6 months after my visa has expired by pending for a status adjustment? Will I have any...

Does this act of withdrawing the application affect one's profile ? I am asking because the company I work in will apply my H1B next year.

I applied my H1B via two companies [one in which I work, and second consultancy where I though I will be able to make more money.] My application submitted by...

Work permit for h1b spouse starting May 26

May 24th 2015
I just got h1b approved and my first year will be October 2015. Based on my understanding, as of May 26, once I reach a certain stage in the green card process my H4 spouse will be able to work. Assuming my employer is cooperative on starting GC, and pays premium processing, what would be the earliest time my spouse could start working?

A main reason for starting the GC process is for my spouse to get a work permit. Are there any implications for starting this process so early? e.g. taxes or...
