Topic: Changing jobs before 6 months of 485

Hi,

I have seen some of my friend change jobs on EAD, couple of them spend 3 years and above before changing and they did not renew the H1 after getting EAD.
Actually I have the same question myself. I just completed 6 months after getting EAD. Is it safe to change jobs?

Topic: Crossed 4 months after the NBC transfer– No Update–Plz gather

Hi,

Same here. EB2 pool, transferred to NBC on Nov 16 2017, since then 2 status updates, "We are scheduling your interview" on dec 19 2017 and then on Mar 23 "we cancelled the interview".

Effectively the waiting continues even after 5 months. Field office is Atlanta.

Topic: Atlanta Field Office Interview

Hey,

Congrats on your GC. By the way my time lines are very similar to yours, but I am yet to get interview notice. The USCIS website says my interview was cancelled as of Mar 23. Do you know how to find out if my petition is with Atlanta field office or NBC. My I485 was transferred to NBC on Nov 16 2017 and since then I have seen 2 updates, "We are scheduling your interview" and "Interview cancelled".

Topic: TCS and CTS biggest beneficiaries of EB1C in fiscal year 2017

Agree with you, not all EB1C are low paid and sneaked through. My brother came here on EB1C as Vice President in a large services company and he has spent over 20 years in the company. His salary was in the top bracket too.

However I would think these are exceptions rather than the rule. I do still think that Eb1C which was initially meant to transfer multinational executives has been overused by these companies. I don't see the companies making their margins on high paid employees.
They need people at the operative level, So it makes perfect sense for these companies to utilize every means at their disposal, not necessarily the right one.

Sooner or later this will start attracting attention. Wait and watch.

It is simple but a great trick. These companies know the H1 renewals are going to carry some risk and uncertainty.
So they send the candidates back and show that they are not so much dependent on H1 but at the same time they can easily slip in several hundred L1As. This is nearly foolproof as L1As don't attract so much scrutiny.

It really comes as no surprise. I heard several CTS employees who were on H1 were sent back in 2017 with out renewal and I hear they are coming back on L1 this year. It is easy to see their gameplan. I am sure that is going to be the pattern until it attracts the attention of the powers that be.

Thanks for the info, again. I guess I'll file 3 months in advance and hope I get the renewal within a 9 month timeframe

Thanks for the info. I am inclined to not renew H1 and use AP for travel. Wonder how long it is taking now a days to get EAD/AP renewed.

Topic: Atlanta Field Office Interview

Hi,

Actually I am thinking if I should file for H1B renewal. Mine is expiring on Apr 26 2018. I have EAD and AP as well. My case is still with NBC, waiting for interview to be scheduled at Atlanta field office.
I am planning to travel to India in June and don't think I will get H1 by then. I don't know if USCIS will reject the case if I travel.
Some of my firends did not renew H1 when they got the EAd and kept using it for over 2 years.

Atleast you have some update on case status that interview is scheduled.
Mine has not moved since I got interview cancellation update on Mar 23. Any idea, what receipt dates they are currently interviewing at Atlanta?

Topic: Secret website to check your status update

My field office is Atlanta and my Attorney says it is very backlogged. My case was transferred to NBC on Nov 16 2017. Interview cancellation update on Mar 23.

I guess you can wait for a few weeks and raise a request. Let me know how it goes.

Thanks
Arun

Exactly the same situation. I did not even know they were attempting to schedule an interview. However in this website if you look at the case history it will show when they attempted to schedule the interview.

Thanks

Same here,
RD July 22
Transfer to NBC: Nov 16
Scheduling Interview: Dec19
Interview cancelled: Mar 23
no further updates. My attorney asked me to wait and not raise inquiry or approach senator yet. Maybe my field office is heavily backlogged on cases.
It is Atlanta by the way.
Any folks in Atlanta in similar situation?
