Topic: Adopting a child from India while on H1B

Thanks JoeF18. I understand that child is child after all and it shouldn't matter if he/she is indian origin or not but in practial terms if he/she looks like us then he will have less struggle while growing up. Also we would prefer him to not know that we are not his biological parents. Anyways we can debate further on this but as far as legal aspect is concerned, is the requirement for staying with child for 2 years applicable for both the parents or only mother can stay and I can still live in US on h1b and somehow manage it by having couple of visits to India in a given year? Also my green card is in process right now, what will happen if I receive my GC mid way through the process?

Topic: Adopting a child from India while on H1B

Hello everyone, I want to adopt a child from India while on H1B. The page below states that "In practice, this means that U.S. nonimmigrant visa holders cannot adopt overseas and *immediately* bring the child back to the United States on a nonimmigrant visa of the same classification as that of the adoptive parent(s). "

https://travel.state.gov/content/adoptionsabroad...

I've two questions,
1) Does anyone know if not *immediately* then when?
2) I met a local attorney here few months back and he told me one of the parents have to stay with adopted child in India for two years before applying for dependent visa. Now I reached out to at least 5 different CARA approved adoption agencies here in USA and none of them are willing to initiate the process unless I am a US citizen. CARA (which is a central agency for adoption in India) suggests that if I am in USA I've to go through US agency. So if US agency doesn't consider me unless I am USA citizen what is the other way? Does anyone know an agency which will start the process even though I am on H1B?

Topic: NJ DMV SAVE unable to verifwife's immigration status

I dont quite remember but it was "pending" or something like that. In any case, you should just wait for 2 to 3 weeks and they will call you. DMV has a process where everyday in morning they will recheck the status of all pending cases and they are pretty good at it so you should receive a call.

Topic: Oct 2015 Visa Bulletin changed

I totally agree. This is an insult for all those who rushed in with the hopes and spent hundreds of dollars on medicals etc. We all MUST take an action. Let us figure out what will be the most efficient way convey our frustration to USCIS.

Topic: What is the difference when you adopt a child on GC vs H1b?

Thanks. Yea I am going to consult an attorney as this is a complex subject and Googling it on going to forums is not going to help much.

Topic: What is the difference when you adopt a child on GC vs H1b?

First of all I know it is very hard to adopt a child from India if you are not a US citizen. Having said that,
(1) Is there a difference if you adopt it on H1b vs GC? The boat that I am in is, I am on H1b and my priority date is current. Now I am in dilemma about whether to file for I 485 or not because I am afraid, having GC might make adopting a kid from India even more difficult. Is that true? Any thoughts on that?
(2) I read somewhere that H1b can adopt child from India but you need to stay with that child for 2 yrs. Is that true for both parents? One possibility I can think about is my wife can go to india and live there with child and I can make few trips to India in those two years. Once 2 yrs time is complete we all came come to USA together.

Topic: NJ DMV SAVE unable to verifwife's immigration status

NJ DMV denied my wife's driver license renewal because the INS system that they have (a.k.a. SAVE) couldn't verify her immigration status. I and my wife both entered this country on 25th May, 2015 after a vacation and we went to DMV after 2 days (on 27th May). I thought their might be some delay in USCIS updating the information in SAVE but it is almost 2 weeks now. Is there anything I could do to expedite this? DMV said they will call us but we have not received any call yet!!

Topic: Applying for H4 at mumbai consulate

Thanks. But will mumbai consulate issue approved H4 - I 797 for my wife? The reason I am asking this is because my wife's driver's license has expired and at DMV they ask for I 797 for license renewal. Does anyone know what to do in this case? I am thinking may be they will renew license just based on her H4 visa stamp but not 100% sure about it.

Topic: Applying for H4 at mumbai consulate

My wife applied for change of status from F1 to H4 and her application is not approved yet. Meanwhile we are planning to travel to india and we both are going for visa stamping (I will apply for H4 renewal whereas my wife will apply for H4) at mumbai consulate. Since we will leave the country while her application is still in process her application will be abandoned. I've filled out DS160 for both of us.. is that sufficient or do I need to do anything else to get my wife's h4 stamp? Also lets say if her h4 COS was approved in this country then she would have got her approval copy (I797), so if I apply at mumbai consulate do they issue me her H4 approval there?

Topic: Traveling to India while H4 change of status is pending

My wife applied for change of status from F1 to H4 in Oct, 2014. The application is still not approved and we are planning a travel to India in this May (2015). I've a valid H1 until Jan, 2016. Is it advisable to travel in this case? My visa stamp is also expired so we both are planning to go to Mumbai consulate to get visa stamps.

Topic: Driving license renewal while H4 status change is pending

Thanks. I actually tried out two different DMVs already with no luck. I also contacted two different senators in NJ. One of them didnt reply and the other guy contacted USCIS but USCIS said they are processing applications for August, 2014 and my wife's application is in Oct, 2014. So looks like we will have to wait.. !! It is frustrating that only in NJ they have this weird rule!!

Topic: Driving license renewal while H4 status change is pending

I am in NJ. I tried at DMV using her H4 receipt from USCIS and they said without approval they won't renew the license. What is that 240 day thing? Do you know of any authorized dmv page which mentions that rule?

Topic: Driving license renewal while H4 status change is pending

My wife applied for change of status from F1 to H4 and it is still in process. Meanwhile her driving license expired and now DMV is refusing to renew it without approval copy. Can someone suggest what options do I have to renew her license? She applied in Oct 2014 and after 6 months it is still not approved :( It is extremely painful for her as she can not drive!!
