Travelling to India with OCI and new passports for kids

Jun 17th 2018
Hello All!

My kids have had OCI since 2012 but have now received new passport last year. We did not get a chance to renew their OCI. We will be travelling to India next month and do not have enough time to renew their OCI. Many people have mentioned that it is okay to travel with the old passport and the OCI card. But their old passports do not have the U-visa sticker (any OCI issused after 2012 did not come with the U-visa sticker). Their ages are 8 and 15. Is is still sufficient to travel...

Disruption of the continous residency

Jun 17th 2018
Hi.My question is about applying for citizenship as a greencard holder and disruption continous residency. After I got my greencard I didn't settle in the US immediately and it took a year for me to move back in the States, however I travelled to the US as soon as I got my card and stayed for 2 weeks and travelled once again before 180 days.
Until recently I thought travelling back and forth would never effect my citizenship process unless it exceeds 180 days, it is only risky at the...

Re-entry

Jun 17th 2018
My wife and I have just had my case number (OC) go current and should hopefully be having our interviews in August (DV18). Due to some changes in personal circumstances since we entered, we'd like to delay our entry for as long as possible, and are planning on waiting until late 2018 or very early 2019 to activate our green card and then return to our home country for about 12 months.

I was considering applying for re-entry permits so we could extend that 12 months to almost 2 years, but...

Aadhar and OCI

Jun 15th 2018
I understand that you need to be in India for 182 days to get aadhar 'legally'. Many of my OCI friends
have gotten aadhar to avoid problem of a service provider insisting on aadhar. But the form clearly says
182 days residency requirement.
What to do if a service provider India insist on aadhar?
I need renew my driving license.

PERM denied, on appeal for 9 years now, what should we do?

Jun 15th 2018
I have been renewing my H1B (extension) every year for about five years now because of a pending decision from the Department of Labor/PERM on our case on appeal (since 2009). My employer and I have been thinking of inquiring about the current status of my case but my lawyer has advised us to leave things as is. Is this sound advice? What other things can we do? I am thinking of moving to another state and change jobs. What will happen to my case on appeal? If it does get approved, should I...

Is it normal for an I-140 amendment petition (SII) to cause a re-opening of the original case with U

Jun 14th 2018
The situation I am in is as follows:

1. Case 123: I-140 under Company A is approved on 01/10/2017
2. Company A is bought by Company B
3. Case XYZ: Company B files I-140 Successor-in-Interest / Amendment petition
4. Today, I get notification that Case 123 was "Reopened for Reconsideration"

Would anyone who has experience in this type of petition let me know if this is normal? Is the previous case usually re-opened, or does this indicate there may be an issue with the original petition?

TN for second term with current employer if want option to join startup later?

Jun 14th 2018
How does US currently view applying for new TN Visa a 3rd time, but within a six year period from original TN entry? Specifically:
1) First TN Visa at big tech company - years 1 - 3
2) Second TN Visa (renewal) at same big tech company - years 4 - 6
3) Third TN Visa at startup (< 7 people) - year #4 (i.e. while second TN Visa is still active)

Based on what I've read, my understanding is that the first renewal is usually ok (#2 above) and third time might give problems. Is that based on the...

How do I prove that I'm not a US citizen?

Jun 13th 2018
Could anyone help me with this?
I have lived in the US without a green card and want to return to my home country in Europe.
Since my passport has long expired, the consulate will not issue a travel document for me unless I can show them I have not taken on US citizenship. Since I have lived here illegally, will I run into legal trouble by sending in the the g-639 requesting this information, i.e. ICE agents knocking on my door? Again I want to leave and return to my home country...
