Hi karthiksubbu, \

please i need your opinion

I485 file June 6 as a dependent-RFE 9/23
EAD file August 14 (still waiting)
Resigned H1B post (long story) effective 9/30. i have valid H1B till january 2015

I was just wondering do I need to file H4 (wife is on H1) if the ead is not approved by 9/30? Would i be out of status if i don't file H4 and EAD not approved by 9/30. is there a grace period after H1B

Thanks guys

Hi karthiksubbu

My date became current and Iam about to file AOS application/package on July 1st.
But I may move out of the current location in August.
My Question - Is it better to give cousins home address in 485,EAD & AP or give my current address and file AR11 (Address while I move out).

I heard some horrible stories that even after AR11 GC and other communication went to old address.

Please let me know if any one had this experince.

Hello Karthik,

Hope you are doing good. I need a suggestion from you. I am a H4 Visa holder and wanted to transfer my Visa to H1B. Is it really possible..? what are the docs required to do the same. Also pl let me know when can I actually initiate for the process. I mean is there any stipulated timeline for filing similar to a fresh H1B filing. Pl reply

Thanking You in advance.

Best Regards,

Hey, sorry I'm not sure why the cases would be pending for so long. You might be able to get a quicker response by upgrading to PP now. It is possible USCIS either misplaced the files are there is some genuine introspection going on with such cases.

Hi Karthik,

In one of your older posts, you had mentioned that you had an approved I-140 from Capgemini and you had switched to another company later. Can you let me know if Capgemini withdrew/revoked your I-140 after you left the organization ? I am specifically asking as I am also a capgemini employee and considering a change of employer as my GC with Cap is in EB3 category.

Thanks a lot,

Hi Tarun,
Actually they did withdraw it recently (sometime in the last year or two). It was untouched for about 5 years (since it was approved in 2010). I heard they are kind of getting closer to being a H1 dependent employer, which definitely supports why they are withdrawing (to give room for new H1 people). If you leave 180 days after the I140 approval you will be protected under the new rule, so you shouldn't have to worry. Good Luck with your move.

I have received audit is it normal one?

They are requesting documentation to show business necessity, and to demonstrate that the requirements for this position (Bachelor's degree + 8 years or a Master's degree + 6 years) are standard within the industry

Please kindly help

I'm surprised this did not come up during PERM. Anyway, this is quite a common type of RFE. You just need to ask your employer (your manager thru HR) a write-up of why these qualifications are necessary for this specific job. Don't worry this should be easily addressed. Good Luck!
