Experience with Federal WHD

Dec 11th 2017
Hello All

I have started this conversation and request all on H1B visa who have experience filing a wage claim/ complaint against your employer with Federal WHD (Wage and Hour Division) to share your experience, proceedings, best practices and timeframes in which your claim was processed or is pending by WHD.

Have you faced retaliation by the employer and in which ways, shapes and forms post-filing the claim/ complaint?

Refugee Travel Document I-131 Experience?

Dec 9th 2017
Hey Guys,

I applied I-131 (Green card holder, asylum based here) back in May, it's been almost 7 months and my case has not had any update/approval yet.

Is this normal? People who have applied for I-131, how long did it take you to get your documents?

Visa Rejected Twice, Need advice

Dec 9th 2017
Hello,

This is rather lengthy but please read. My boyfriend is a UK citizen and wants to come visit me here in the states so he can meet my parents. He was denied ESTA and has applied for visa twice at the consulate only to be rejected twice. We believe that it is because he is inadmissable because he has a drug possession charge for marijuana. It is below 30 grams and we have heard of the waiver of inadmissibility but it is only for fiance visa and he has to prove that I would be in...

My H1-B was approved in 2013 and I got a visa for 1 year till 12/22/2014 and I traveled alone to USA.

Help I've a Qs regarding overstay & re-entry

Dec 6th 2017
Hello I hope this is the right place to ask this qs.
This is regarding my cousins father.
He has overstayed in the US in the past and returned back in 2011.
However he got his visa approved in 2017 as a multiple entry. Now they want him to visit USA for sisters delivery.
But what they fear is ...will he get deported at port of entry? Is this a wrong decision to enter use even though he got the visa approved? Will the CBP track his previous overstay & deny him to re enter?
He never had any...

Returning to the U.S with I-551 stamp

Dec 6th 2017
Hi everyone, I’m currently studying abroad in France and I’m going to be returning home for the holidays. I lost my green card in April and submitted my replacement application and I’m still waiting to hear back from them. They send me messages every month saying my application is still under review. I was wondering if there is going to be a problem traveling back home with just my I-551 stamp? Would they need the physical green card? Thanks in advance!

Convicted of DUI recently - want to apply for a US job via TN

Dec 6th 2017
Good afternoon. I ran across this site and was hoping for some help. Long story short, I was charged for an over 80 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood in Ontario, Canada in May of 2016. At the time, I was working in the US as a daily computer through a TN Visa. I had to quit my position due to my 3 month driving probation and thus sent my I-94 card (which contained my TN Visa stamp / CAR number) to US Immigration through regular mail. I tried to fight the charge and was...

I'm a Canadian UX Researcher working in tech. Am I eligible for a TN visa?

Dec 6th 2017
Hi,

I am a UX Researcher (user experience) working in tech in the US. I am currently on post-completion OPT after finishing my MA in psychology. Would I be eligible for the TN visa or would I need sponsorship for an H1b? The job can require some work with design concepts (prototyping, wireframing), but is more research-based.

Thanks for your help!

TN with Non-Straightforward Job Category Match Backup Plan?

Dec 6th 2017
Hey there,

I'm a Canadian citizen who is applying for a TN through USCIS expedited processing with Montreal. The job is essentially data work around HR (people analytics), which matches my education fairly well (Masters in Organizational Psychology, Bachelors of Science). That said, neither my education nor the job fit a TN category super well. We have decided to go with Statistician since I took a good amount of statistics courses across both degrees, but I have already been told that it...

7 years of training on H1B

Dec 5th 2017
Hi all,

I am a PYG4 H1B visa holder applying for a 3 years fellowship.
I've thought that it might be possible to complete the fellowship, by matching and starting on H1b and then seeking an employer by the end of the 1st or beginning of the 2nd year of fellowship that would sponsor green card for a job after fellowship. This should allow for a visa extension to complete the third year of fellowship while the green card is in process, right?
Would fellowship programs be OK with this?...
