Scheduling parents' B2 visa interview while I am outside USA

Jul 12th 2018
Hi guys,

I got my H-1B visa restamped while visiting my parents in India. I want them to visit me sometime in the next few months. While preparing their DS-160 forms, I mentioned that they would be visiting me and would be staying at my address. Along with that, I also mentioned that I would be paying for their trip.
Their interview date is scheduled for Aug 2 while I am leaving India on the 4th.
As I will not be in the US while they appear for their interview, would that be considered as...

Jul 7th 2018
Hello,

Can any one please help me. I came to USA in 2011 on F 1 Student Visa. In early 2017, I applied Tourist Visa for my parents.(I got married in 2015 and husband also had F1 Student Visa at that time) .

B1 in lieu of H1B rejected - 214(b) refusal

Jun 13th 2018
I am working with a multinational automotive company in India. Recently my company processed my VISA for a short term work in US(3months). It was B1 in lieu of H1B but got rejected citing 214(b) clause. I have no idea why it got rejected as the consular officer didnt ask me much questions. He took the attorney letter which I had submitted and told me admin processing is required. At the end my Passport came without VISA stamping.

Now my company is attempting me to send in L1B. The span of...

Complex E2-H1B mix - SO MANY FORMS!

Apr 17th 2018
Hello,

I have a question about my employee for whom I am filing for a GC/EB2.

He's on a H1B, expiring in Aug '18. He still has three years of his H1B, therefore I have requested a Prevailing Wage so as to extend his H1B while his EB2 is being processed.

The PERM should arrive at the beginning of August. We plan to file concurrently I-140 and I-485, expediting the I-140.

In order, the forms we plan to file for him:

I-129, I-907, I-539 (for his spouse), to renew his H1B/H4 (as soon as the...

Dear experts,

My parents-in-laws came from India to the US on Aug 22, 2017 for a 6 month visit on B2 visa. They are scheduled to return back on Feb 15th, 2018.

Could you please let me know all the documentation and USCIS forms required for the extension request.

lost extension approval notice, what to do?

Apr 12th 2018
Gurus please help!
My mom visited US once before and the extension of her stay was filed timely and approved by INS in 2002. After she went back and stayed in our home country for more than 3 years, we are inviting both my parents on visitor visas (my dad never visited US) and their applications for B2 visitor visas were rejected because we did not provide the copy of my mom's extension approval notice! We made a grave mistake by not copying the original approval notice and we put the whole...

Affidavit of taking care of old mother

Apr 7th 2018
Hi,

I am 41 years old and applying for B2 visa. I am self-financing my trip. Somebody suggested me to prepare an affidavit stating that I am and will be taking care of my old mother who lives with me here in India. This is to show I have some family ties here in India and I will return.

Does such affidavit help? Should I execute this affidavit on stamp paper?

Thanks,
Viraj
