H1B amendment
Comment: 
I have filed my new H1B and H1B amendment with Rajiv’s office. They were great in getting the work done and respond back quickly on their side. They will also set up conference call with Rajiv directly for any immigration questions. Anna and Fran did a great job on thier part and answered all the questions in detail. Thanks, Naren.

H-1B Extension

We were retained to file H-1B extension for the job title of Manager, HR and Training Operations [SOC (ONET/OES) Occupation Title of 11-3131 Training and Development Manager]. USCIS questioned that the job does not qualify as specialty occupation because the position falls within the category of HR Managers, and, as such, no specific degree or education is required to train for the position of HR Manager.

H-1 and Out of Status

My project is going to end soon and my employer does not know if he will have another client with a project for me. How long do I have to find a new employer before I am out of status? What should I do if my current employer withdraws my H-1B?

There is no grace period when you are laid off. You will be out of status from the date your current employment ends. It is advisable to apply for a change of status to, for example, B1/B2, F-1, or H-4.

Petition to extend H-1B Visa

My H-1B approval notice is valid for four more months. When can I begin the process to extend my H-1?

A petition to extend your H-1B can be submitted for receipt by USCIS no sooner than six months prior to the expiration of your current H-1B, so you could begin the process at any time now.

Employer Sponsoring for H-1 Visa

I have completed all of my studies in college for my Bachelor’s Degree but have not received my diploma from the university. How can I show my prospective employer that I have the education necessary for him to sponsor me for an H-1 position?

You must submit evidence of the beneficiary’s educational degree at the time of filing. If all of the requirements for the degree have been met, but the degree has not yet been awarded, the following alternate evidence may be submitted: (1) A copy of the beneficiary’s final transcript; or (2) A letter from the Registrar confirming that all of the degree requirements have been met (if the educational institution does not have a Registrar, such letter must be signed by the person in charge of the educational records where the degree will be awarded).
