    H-1B no notification of termination, 60 days grace period, etc.

    Video Transcript

    File a complaint against the employer with the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor by filling up the form WH-4. You can also call them. 

    The 60 day grace period works like this. The new employer must make sure that your H-1B transfer application is received by the USCIS within 60 days. So the LCA should be done, the package prepared and USCIS should receive your H-1B transfer within 60 days, otherwise you will be out of status and you will have to go outside the USA for visa stamping pandemic or no pandemic, also remember there is a proclamation that will stop you from coming back at least before December. Make sure you remain in status or at least file a B-2. FAQ in detail...

    I-485 Pending Using EAD Consequences

    Video Transcript

    1. My inclination is to start using the employment authorization and if you are a registered nurse and if you are working with covid patients or even otherwise as a health care worker there might be some options for your visas.

    2. I strongly recommend obtaining the H-1B's. You should also look at the H-1B's which are for university hospitals. There you will not be subject to the H-1B quota. So as a fall back device having an H-1 is a lot better than having an F-2. FAQ in detail...

    1. Please discuss your job description that is intended in the foreign country outside USA with your lawyers. Make sure you plan for it from day one because if you try to plan for it a year down the line you won't succeed.

    2. You can apply an EB-1C and then transfer the priority date from another case. No problem EB-2 and EB-3 can be transferred over. You can come on L-1A. You should definitely at least get your EB-1C started as quickly as possible that my opinion.

    3. There is no visa ban in starting the application.

    Video Transcript

    I would prefer you to get a  non-availability certificate along with two affidavits from people who were alive when your parents were born. That is what I would recommend. If it is too cumbersome you could try to set up the reciprocity table as evidence if such documents are not available. FAQ in detail...
