Topic: H1b Premium Processing - No receipt

No, I haven't heard back anything at all. Have signed up for mobile and email alerts on the USCIS website for any status updates. Keep checking my mailbox at home right after the mailman leaves to see if H4 approval came through since I heard online case status updates are really slow/not being updated at all.

Seems like my whole life has been taken over by this anxiety over H1 approval. Sigh...

Topic: H1b Premium Processing - No receipt

I am in the same boat. My H1 extension was submitted to CSC on Mar 27 and USCIS returned the PP check with a note that it will be processed in regular mode. If you get an answer, please let me know as well.

My employer is perplexed as well on why this happened. The attorney says USCIS had a huge swarm of PP petitions that they returned some at random.

Topic: H1b Premium Processing - No receipt

Quick question.
My H1 extension was applied in pp. USCIS received date is Mar 27. Notice date is Mar 28. Applied in CSC. I received my receipt. However, it does not mention premium. Check hasn't been cashed either. Is USCIS randomly picking up applications in pp? How come people with Mar 30 and 31 received dates have got receipt for pp while others have received notices but not pp and yet others haven't received any notice at all?

How do you know these dates? your employer gave receipt notice to you?
H4 receipt date - 27 Mar
H4 Notice date - 28 Mar



I received the H4 receipt in mail at home. My H1 receipt went to the lawyer/employer.


And don't worry since you have current H1 until June 2017


But if my extension is being processed in regular instead of PP, I assume it'll be at least a year before I hear back anything on it?

Here is my situation:

H1 Extension + H4 Extension applied in pp
H4 receipt date - 27 Mar
H4 Notice date - 28 Mar

Lawyer & Employer not responding to requests for H1 receipt. However they did say that USCIS has not sent them anything regarding PP but they have received H1 receipt, which does not mention PP. PP check hasn't been cashed.

What does all this mean? I am so nervous and confused. My current H1 expires in June 2017.

Topic: SSN for H4 EAD

No need to change your surname if you don't want to. My wife has her original surname in all her documents. There was no problem when we applied for her H4, H4 extension, H4 EAD. We have a marriage certificate proving our relationship. The only thing I can think of is having your spouse's name endorsed on your passport. That should be enough.

Yes, you can use the same SSN. SSN is for a person and not dependent on visa status (except if your visa status does not allow you to get an SSN the first time itself). You should be good to go! All the best! :)

Yes, this is normal. I had the same statuses when the case was approved last week. The case status changed to "we mailed your card" last night.

Hey..sorry for the late reply. Yes, my case status changed to "card has been mailed" too. From what I've read in this forum is that the card generally reaches within 10 days of this status and tracking information is not updated till we actually receive the card in hand. Hope that helps.

Thanks and Congratulations to you as well!

Same here. Online status says 'Case Approved' and case history says 'Ordered new card'. Well, waited for this long, won't hurt to wait a bit longer to see what happens. :)

Was going to raise an SR today as my 75 days were up. Thankfully got the approval.

Received the magic email and text message last night. EAD for my wife finally approved.

Application Number: EAC1590723***
Application Date: July 10
USCIS Notice Date: July 12
EAD Approved: Sep 24
Card Ordered: Sep 24

Just had one question. I got two emails last night. The first one said card has been ordered and the second one said EAD has been approved. What is the difference between the two?

Processing at VSC is quite random.

My wife's application will be reaching the 75 day mark next week. Still case status shows as received. No movement. While a friend of mine received approval 2nd week of August on his application filed last week of June.

Topic: Need urgent help: I-140 RFE on detailed advisory evaluation

My educational evaluation had the details that your RFE talks about. However, I am not sure if it would be sufficient. Just to give you an idea, my evaluation had the following details:

1. Details about the time spent in school (14 years), CBSE board, 10th and 12th marksheet evaluations and then comparing it with High School here.
2. Details about my engineering degree, time spent (8 semesters/4 years), subjects studied, details about the University and how it compares equivalent to a US Graduate Degree.
3. Details about the evaluator, his experience etc.

Hope this helps. If not, let me know.

Topic: Need urgent help: I-140 RFE on detailed advisory evaluation

I had received an RFE when I had originally applied for H1 way back in 2011. My employer took care of it and got the educational evaluation done. I will have to search for the educational evaluation for my case and provide you the details of the evaluator. In the meantime, you can search for educational evaluators online and try to touch base with them. I am not sure how much they would charge.

On a side note, isn't your employer taking care of this RFE?
