    with special needs or challenges

    Video Transcript: 

    Since Trump administration has proven to be extremely hostile to immigration, both legal and undocumented I cannot predict what the consulate is  going to ask. My advice would be to go ahead and apply for her like it is a normal application.

    Consequences of losing my job on H-1B and revocation of I-140




    Video Transcript:

    The moment the I-140 is revoked nobody can take away your priority date. The only time the priority date can be taken away is if the I-140 was approved in error or through fraud. On the other hand, once the I-140 has been approved and stays approved for 180 days not only do you keep your priority date, you also keep the right to keep extending your H-1B beyond six years with any employer. So180 days is a great time to wait. These regulations changed on January 17th, 2017. Any cases that occurred after that date would have to go by these regulations. FAQ in detail...
