Topic: Immigration Reform is coming soon

And what has Trump really done so far other than talks? I like some of his talks, but they are just that, TALKS !
Points based system makes sense but that won't happen. Does chain migration need to stop? yes. Would that happen? I don't think so.

Big tech companies have enough influence on government to sway the decisions in their favor. its capitalism at its best. "We are skills short, Increase H1-B visas. But don't increase GC visas for them." Be it Dems or GOP, no one works for us legal immigrants. we must digest that. Its like you don't promote your hardest worker who gets the job done 90% of the time in assigned timeline.

Topic: STEP BY STEP - How to Immigrate to Canada

This is partially true. I had tried this 3 years ago. Got evaluation done by WES, got mine and wife's IELTS scores (7.5 both) and everything, when they changed the points system. Now points favor those who have Canada experience, Canada Education or a Canada Job offer in hand. My application stayed there for 2 years (after renewal) and I never got ITA and I gave up. Now my IELTS is no more valid (been 3+ years).

So best way is to find a job in Canada first, go there on a visa and THEN apply for PR. I may try this route again, but I doubt my chances would be higher than last time.

Topic: WH lays out principles for immigration for daca deal

This is a normal trick. They "bundle" two different kinds of bills in one bill. Either both have to be passed or none. someone always objects to one or the other and nothing gets done. bill makers do this to "show" that they are doing something.

Topic: Impact of Location, Role, Salary change

No. Attorney has no idea about the new role yet. I haven't furnished all the details to the firm yet, but just asked them a casual question, the answer to which seems to be rhyming with responses I am getting from all of you here. A new PERM always scares the daylights out of me.

Topic: Impact of Location, Role, Salary change

Thanks buddy. I do agree that the move would be good for career growth. I am looking at approximately 50% hike in salary as well, after adjusting for cost of living for SF to where I am right now. Plus SF is silicon valley hub. But I value quality of life more than money and career growth. I am at a stage of life where "more money" is not a priority but being able to spend what I have with family is.
I am the kind of guy who thinks what good is money if it is just a number in the bank account. But that's just me.

Thanks Karthik. you seem to be here a lot and I'd value your opinion accordingly. Not that I don't appreciate all answering my concerns. I am just sick and tired of all these immigration related EFF UPs and long waits.

Topic: Impact of Location, Role, Salary change

Getting mixed responses here as well :D... I really don't understand the need for new PERM/I-140 as job duties would be more or less the same. I am sure more than 50% would be same. It's just primarily a location change that comes with cost of living adjustment that causes the title change or probably a promotion.

That is what my concern was as well. I don't want to risk another PERM/I140 given the dynamics in politics these days. But that's what the attorney said. I was shocked to know that actually.

Topic: Impact of Location, Role, Salary change

Hello All,
I have been working for a US Fortune 500 firm for last 9 years with my EB2 PD being of very early 2011. I am being asked to move to Bay Area. This would cause a change in my Title, Salary and of course the location. More or less, my duties would be same. Question is how would this impact me?

1. My company attorney says that I "may" need another PERM/I-140 in a year or two. But I'd retain my PD. It didn't make sense to me.

2. Would there be an amendment required for my H1?

I know bay area would kick my butt when it comes to finances, but that is different discussion altogether.

Topic: Fight with Citizen

Sad story indeed. Looking at some of the threads on filing I-140 and being denied, shocked me. Folks with BSc and "5- year IT experience" want EB2.

Coming back to the OP, I am not as worried about OP's English grasp rather worried for his professionalism grasp. English is just a language, but "fighted"? And he hasn't responded to any of the "What happened" questions from helpers trying to help him. These are the folks who are just the billing heads.

I interview folks for some of the roles I need. It is a bleak picture really. Someone even said that he coded in "C Double Plus". Stunning.

Topic: Bond break in India

Talk to a lawyer man. Although, if bond is between you and Indian company, you might be on the hook. Bonds in US, AFAIK, are bi-directional. any party breaking it is liable. But, talk to your lawyer. And were the interest rate part of original bond?

Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act

IV is bunch of assh*les. It appears to me that they are bunch of folks who are staying here illegally and want members to pay for their living. One of the doctor guys had been living here illegally and was showcased in some website too. I had been contributing to that site, only with my WORDS though, to gauge if its worth it to pay them. It looks like over the course of 10 years of them asking money from members, they haven't done a single thing that counts for immigrants. They sure like to take a lot of credit.

I first started asking them questions publicly on their facebook page and they started blasting me and then banned me lol. Just asking them where is the money going is offensive to them. That alone is a red flag to not give them a penny. It's amazing that they keep fighting with this siskind lawyer and calling him names for him filing a law suit during the time when USCIS retracted filing dates. At least siskind did file a suit, what has IV done? NADA.

Topic: Trump next move H1B

130K in East/West Coast is way different than say 130K in North Carolina/Atlanta. Having a standard set at 130K is rubbish. What I think would be (if at all) double the minimum wage for that state for that job code. I am amazed at some of the comments in the forum.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

I doubt any of this would matter as things seem to be random at USCIS. Think of a typical office.
Day 1: There are 100 files to process and there are 10 officers. Each gets 10 files. officer 1 would have file #1 on top where as officer 2 would have file#11.
Day 2: Each officer finishes 5 files for the day. Some security thing keeps all the undone files aside. all 50 the night of day 1. Today, each gets the same files plus any new (say another 50). so again there are 100 that get divided in 10 officers again, in no typical order.

total randomness. Just thinking. As someone said, just wait this out for 90 days.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

I think they do a monthly invoicing. They do not wait for employer to pay them first. But I could be wrong. I am just waiting for the EAD Card. Not sure how long it would take, but this is definitely a tension remover for families stuck in immigration black holes.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

Yes. Thank you for replies. Mine is a reputed employer and benefits are nice too. Attorneys are good people as well. They may not be as prompt as desi attorneys, but they follow the process to the core. I've always had physical copies sent to me for each and every process I go through the immigration process. I've seen people not getting their I-140 approvals and what not but nothing like that here. My employer is even willing to consider having my spouse join them, should there be a position supporting her role. They do understand that she could never work because of the H4 dependency. Very happy here.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

Yes. It was G-28, where we provide the consent to have an attorney represent us. That form did have an email address and when attorneys sent those out to us, the email address was pre-filled by them. We just signed and sent it back to them. Not sure if this would trigger the notification via email to us as we did not file G1145 and filing+attorney fee is paid by my employer.
Guess, we'll just have to wait for the receipt notice to be made available to attorneys (who said 15 days) and then I'll poke them to hand that over to me.
