H Visa

Concurrent H-1B for Part Time Job

I am working for company X as a full time employee on H-1B visa. They have filed my green card and my I-140 has been improved. Company Y to hire me as a part time on W2 but I need to work as and when required. So sometime I have to work 20-3- hours in a week and sometime, I will not have work for months. I can work from home too during off hours. Company Y is going to file concurrent H-1B. I have few questions regarding my visa:
1) Will it affect my current full time H-1B with Company X
2) Will it affect my green card process
3) Is it ok if I don't work for months for company Y without affecting Company Y's H-1B
4) If I get new I-94 through company Y, will it affect my current status?
5) Will company X know about H-1B filed by Company Y?

This is not likely to work. Filing a concurrent H-1 is perfectly acceptable in this case and it does not affect your green card process, nor your current H-1. I dont know of any way an H-1 can be approved for an intermittent employment.

Do Not Have Copy of I-140 Approval Notice But Have Receipt

I have my I-140 approved(in my 6th year of H-1). But my employer is not handing the approval notice to me. I have both Receipt Number and my Labor number (starting with A.). I have filed FOIA to get copy of I-140 approval notice. I wanted to know 1) Can I transfer my H-1 to another employer by just giving I-140 receipt number to them? 2) Can my new employer use this number to file my GC and keeping the PD based on this number?

As long as your I-140 is not revoked BEFORE approval of H-1 extension/transfer, the receipt should be enough to get an extension with another employer. The priority date transfer is "automatic" and done at the USCIS level; that should not even need a receipt.

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.

H-4 Visa Holder Applying for Canada PR

As a H-4 visa holder in the USA (my husband is on H-1B), and an Indian citizen, I plan on applying for Canadian PR via the federal skilled worker program, to eventually start working there. The question I have is if my PR does come through within a year, will my H-4 visa in the USA get affected or be void immediately? Provided I don't get a job in Canada by then, how long will my H-4 be valid after I get my PR in Canada? Can I choose to live in either country in that case? Also, while applying for the PR, they asked for sufficient funds. Since I am a H-4 dependent, can I show my husband's funds and income as a source? Because I am not earning here, I will have to have his money transferred. Will that be a problem?

Your H-4 visa does not get affected by PR in Canada, and whether or not you stay in the USA or Canada. The visa stays valid through the date of its stamping, as long as your husband is maintaining status. US immigration laws also should not create any issues with a funds transfer, but check Canadian laws and US Tax Laws.

H-4 visa employment

When do you think the H-4 regulations giving EAD will become in operation? Will they be changed or will they remain the same?

Timing is impossible to predict. It could be as early as September or so, or as late as the government wants it to be. Also, government CAN and often does change or modify regulations after comments from the public are reviewed.
