We were retained for an H-1B petition. USCIS issued a Request for Evidence asking for proof that the beneficiary would be employed in-house and that the petitioner has sufficient specialty level work available for the beneficiary. No project information or agreements entered into with the clients could be provided to USCIS as evidence because of the confidential nature of the projects that the beneficiary would be required to work on in-house. Therefore, we relied on secondary evidence supported by legal arguments. USCIS accepted our arguments and approved the application.
I am currently on H-1B visa. Is there a way I can change the visa to F-2 without going back to India? My fiancé is here on F-1 visa and this visa is valid till Sep 2014.
You must be married to the F-1 holder in order to be eligible for F-2 status. Fiances do not qualify for derivative status.
After getting married to a green card holder & applying for a spouse visa is it possible to apply for H-1 visa?
Yes you can apply for H-1 even if you get married to a U.S. immigrant or U.S. citizen.
The period of time when an F-1 student’s status and work authorization expire through the start date of their approved H-1B employment period is known as the "Cap-Gap".
I recently got my H1B approved. I find everyone in the Law Offices of Rajiv S. Khanna very supportive and attentive to each detail. I would like to thank Rajiv and his team for such a good job and would strongly recommend their services to anyone. Best Wishes!
USCIS sent an RFE for my H-1B petition and indicated that they have attempted to validate the company or organization in its Validation Instrument for Business Enterprises (VIBE) system. What is this?
USCIS has indicated that VIBE allows USCIS to electronically receive commercially available information from an Immigrant Investor Program (IIP), currently Dun and Bradstreet (D&B), about apetitioning company or organization. This information includes:
• Business activities, such as type of business (North American IndustryClassification Systemcode), trade payment information, and status (active or inactive)
• Financial standing, including sales volume and credit standing
• Number of employees, both on-site and globally
