Topic: Selling everything and going back

Thanks for the info, but i think you cannot go back for good with a GC. You will have to come back in 2 years with reentry permit or spend at least 6 months a year in the US, also keeping all the ties with the US.

Topic: Selling everything and going back

How do you go back with just a green card? How do you keep it active? I think once you get a GC, you are stuck here for 5 more years to get your passport. Can someone elaborate?

My personal experience:

I actually did go back to India once in 2010, took a manager role in a MNC, went back. Personally, I felt I was too young and decided to come back to the US again. The next time I do get back, I will stay there for good (working out a plan in a few years). My personal experience is, India is awesome, but you have to just spend the first few months quietly without taking in a lot of negativity to yourself or your family members. You just have to rewind and think about the first few months when you came to the US, you had very few friends, had to talk to your family members in installments, live in the cold (majority of us), feel different, etc. You will have the same challenge now when you go back to India, but if you weather the storm, you can live an awesome life. Few things to be aware of, if not already:
1) Traffic is horrible everywhere, you cannot go from point A to point B, with the ease you could in the US.
2) Be careful with water, food.
3) US brings down your immunity, so be cautious for a few months, before you build up your immunity.
4) Don't experiment too much for the first few months.
5) You will feel let down, cheated, frustrated with the system, etc, don't let that get to you, every place has its own challenges.
6) Work culture is very different, people dont draw a line between professional and personal questions.
7) Nobody gives a damn anymore that you are returning from the US, that novelty ship has sailed long time ago.
8) You can survive individually in the US, but in India you are dependent on a lot of folks to run your own life, you have to respect that.

Enjoy and good luck!!

Topic: I-485 eb1c non concurrent in phoenix lockbox

Hi,

Got my non concurrent eb1c I-140 approved a couple of months ago. My company filed for my I-485, EAD\AP and they said they sent to phoenix lockbox. I couldnt find any information on processing times in the tracker. Does the application get routed somewhere else?

Thanks guys!! I saw a non concurrent case in the tracker getting approved in just over two months. Looks like there is not a rhyme or reason or pattern.

Topic: EB1C July 2014 TSC Filings

The legal team in my company wants to do them non concurrent, as there is cost cutting for this quarter ( i work for a non-IT fortune 500 company). It sounds ridiculous but that is the travails of working for a big corporation, there is a lot of red tape. I tried the same argument, but it looks like they will file non concurrent purely on financial basis. Just wanted to go with it, did not want to argue too much.

that makes total sense, thanks for the response. Typically what is the processing time for I-140 non concurrent?

Topic: EB1C July 2014 TSC Filings

Is there a difference in processing of I-140 between a concurrent case vs non concurrent case? are both the cases (concurrent and non concurrent) approvals handled the same way? Is there any advantage of filing non concurrent vs concurrent?

Many thanks!!

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

There is big money in the H4 EAD as well, EAD fee for 100k people and the tax money from employment, etc also is a contributor. But H-4 EAD is a bit sensitive among american citizens, who think that they are going to lose their jobs once this rule gets implemented, so i think for that reason it has been kind of been underplayed quite a bit in public. Also, I think this rule is a done deal and will get implemented very soon. We all sometimes forget that DHS is a government agency, things do take its time. It has only been 33 days since the comment period ended :)

Topic: FOIA request for I-140 details - How soon can i file?

Thanks for the reply. Actually they at filing premium, so I will wait for the approval and then file the FOIA request. The problem is they won't even share the receipt number. In that case how do I get the details? I want to request the minimum required to port and change employers thanks!!

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

h1b, L1, EB1 visa abuses are separate issues. I would put those on par with the illegal immigration issues. It is opening another can of worms. USCIS needs to address these, put the checks in place. H4 EAD is a totally different issue, by blocking this rule, you aren't going to fix those other problems. On the other hand, I believe (including my wife) there are tons of H4's who are extremely well qualified and have the skillsets (be it IT or non-IT) who would probably take the honest route given a chance.

Topic: FOIA request for I-140 details - How soon can i file?

Hi,

My current company is filing my I-140 sometime this week in premium processing. They were very frank in saying that they won't be sharing any information about the I-140, not even the receipt number. It is a fortune 500 company, but it is just their HR policy and I cannot do much about it. I have a couple of good offers in the preliminary stage and certainly want to get my I-140 details so that I might be able to jump ships at some point. My question is:
1) When can I file FOIA request to get the I-140 details? Do i need to wait for the 140 approval or can I fire a request right away after they file the I-140?
2) Do i have to get the A# for sending the I-140 request? How do i get that?
3) What is a good timeline for the FOIA requests? Just a ball park figure?

Thanks in advance for the responses!!

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

If you look at the rulemaking chart, it says : OMB reviews only those rulemaking
actions determined to be
“significant.”

From the reginfo description, this rule is actually not economically significant and I think it makes this rule not significant, meaning OMB does not have to review again for the 2nd time. The definition is anything that will cost more than 100 million $ to the government, then it is considered significant. This rule actually will make government $$ by way of administrative fees and taxes paid by the prospective employees. So this rule if the comments turn out ok, can skip step 8 and step 8 basically and go into publications. Again, wishful thinking i suppose, i just hope :)
