I would suggest go for both Canada WP as well as H1 Premium extension. My H1 got extended within 15 days for next 1 year.
Canada WP is still pending. Mine was applied in mid May.

Don't take your frustration out on the company. they have treated all of us equally and did what the best they could do. you are here because of them else you would not even reached a stage where you are. which law has Cts broken. They are doing what they can do best and fighting for. atleast they are fighting for us. if you hav a problem then leave and work independently. CTs is way lower on denied cases. Go check Microsoft, Cisco, google. the number us higher. Clear your fact before just saying bad about a conpany.

Not that I am aware of. Raise a gsd request and ask. Cognizant will help if its within the laws of immigration.

Git will do it in premium if your account is ready to bear the cost. ask your account manager or client partner to drop a mail to you confirming that they will bear the cost. that's all.

My max out was sep and mine got filed I. premium. Ofcourse my driving license expiry was July.

@ Wasimoh - If you are seeing your name on oalj website. It means CO has denied your request for reconsideration. Now it is in BLCA queue. OALJ website is nothing but BALCA

Sorry to hear that buddy. This means Certifying Officer has reaffirmed its decision and your perm application is denied. Now it goes to BALCA where the hearing will happen on your case. In a rare scenario it gets approved else you need to leave the country at the end of your valid H1B. CTS will receive the decisioning in 15 days and then it has 30 days to decide whether it wants to apply for BALCA. If it does BALCA takes 6 months to docket the case. Based on the load your hearing can happen within 6 + x months till 2+years. Basically we all are in a black hole where we can keep extending our H1B 1 year at a time. Those like me who go to India every year it will be a big headache of stamping etc.

Also those who are asking the question whether got approval after seeing their name in BALCA. Please use common sense. BALCA takes 6 months to docket the case so if your name is there in Balca list nothing will come out for next 6-7 months of it and seeing the load i dont see it for next 2 years. All this information is not mine alone but is a mix of online attorneys and forums.

Hope this helps. Best of Luck.

Thank you so much for your response. Really speaking I was looking for a response from a person who had first hand experience. Well I had prepared for the worst and took care of an apartment in a closed community with a school which has IB board for the residents. it's within a mile distance from Cognizant office and also a lot of IT offices around. I was waiting for a push back to India and may be this is what of is. your mail has given a lot if confidence and with bring only son I think that would be right too.
Cheers and Thanks again @ctsgc

Apologies for writing in both forums:

Guys, My account as well as Client has agreed for me being moved to Canada. I am still thinking it be canada or go to India as after denial its rare to get approval and if it goes to Balca its more pain. With kids starting to go school this year dont want to disturb their life. can one of you answer my questions: 1) do we have to negotiate the salary if we go to canada ? 2) Can we move our stuff to canada (like car, household stuff etc) or we need to sell off and start fresh ? 3) H1B EXTENSION which we will get based on perm >365 days will it become invalid immediately in worst case perm gets denied ? Help guys. Want to make informed decision.

Well I didn't applied for EB1 because I am a US Hire. I don't have international experience as Manager. I don't have any complaints with Cognizant. they had given me the options upfront letting me know the category and asking me whether to go ahead or not. it's just the luck.

The formality is complete. Got the denial mail from GIT.

Guess what the person who sits next to me applied for EB1 in Jan and got approval last week. He is going for his biometrics. God is great. ;-)
