K Visa for Spouse of Green Card Person

Can I get K visa for my spouse? I am a US immigrant with green card. Is there something called a V visa?

V visa no longer exists. There is no K visa option for green card holders. Sorry.

Sister Filed Petition

My sister filed petition for me last year maybe I-130. I am an Indian and my wife is Italian, I am in California nowadays since last week. Can we stay here permanently under I-485 or AOS whatever?

That category takes 13-14 years. During the time you are waiting for your priority date to be current, you cannot stay in the USA just because your green card is pending. You can, however, stay or come to the USA under a visa independent of the green card such as L-1, H-1. You can also apply for a green card in several categories simultaneously.

LCA for Singapore H-1B1

Do we need to send an LCA for H-1B1 Singapore quota?

Yes, you do. E-3 visas for Australia and H-1B1 for Singapore and Chile, all require an LCA.

Can I Travel Back On F-1 Visa If My Reinstatement Is Denied?

Do I have to get a new visa stamp for my F-1 or can I travel back using the same F-1 visa stamp if my reinstatement is denied? I fell out of status because I registered for less than a full course load.

In my view, it is unsafe to travel on an existing visa after being out of status. If they become aware of your status problems, CBP, upon returning, can turn you back at the airport, or worse, even formally deny you admission thereby laying a five-year bar against reentry.

Is CPT an Acceptable Way of Working?

My H-1 6 years are about to be over. No way to extend per lawyers. Can I move to CPT?

This is tricky. Usually CPT in the first semester is looked upon with suspicion by USCIS, unless: 1. yours is a graduate program; 2. the practical training is integral to the academic program; and 3. the employer has signed a co-operative agreement with the school.

Visa for Medical Treatment

What kind of visa can I get for medical treatment. I have an appointment with a Surgeon in Anderson. Can the visa be extended without leaving America?

Typically, medical treatment in the USA is undertaken on a B-1 ("Business" visa. Strange, huh?). But do not get confused. Consulates often mark visas as B-1/B-2 or even B-2 (visitors/tourist) for medical treatment. Once here, you can ask for extensions of stay if the circumstances so require. I remember extending the stay of a child and his parents for two years (in 6-monthly chunks), where the baby was being treated for ongoing medical problems.
