Topic: H1b stamping ( less than an year on H1b)

Frankly speaking with my experience, its up to which officer you get at the consulate. If your wages are not L1/L2 and you have all the documentation there should not be any problem. But as they say......you never know whats going to happen, just be prepared/be confident and answer counsellor questions with confidence.

Topic: H1B Restamping with new I797

Yes, you can do it if your current visa is expiring within 12 months and if its just an extension then you can choose the drop box option and avoid the interview at the consulate.

Topic: H1B Extension RFE

1 - Yes but with condition that you have not started working for the new employer based on your receipt because if that is the case then you always have the fear if your previous employer has revoked your last approved petition. If so then you I-94 will not be valid and you have to leave the country if the petition is denied.

2 - Yes

Topic: Changing employers. H1b transfer

Its about how much apatite you have for risk. Seeing current situation, highly advisable to join after approval (since PP is open) it will be just 15 days.

Anyway you cannot join the new employer till the receipt comes, in regular processioning the receipt takes 7-10 days (actual copy) to your attorney. As you know if you go for PP, its 15 days and your attorney gets a copy of receipt/approval notice via email. I dont think 5 days is worth the risk based on current situation where 40% of H1 applicants get RFEs.

Topic: Am I getting RFE for Specialty Occuption as well?

As I read the RFE, there are 2 things, one is pay stub to establish contentious employment which is easy in case you are employed and for specialty occupation.

For Specialty Occupation, this is not for you but for the position for which you were hired. This is very tricky as I was denied in 2015 for same reason. Here what your employer has to prove is the position requires minimum of Bachelor's degree as started.

There are companies which do job position evaluation and are accredited by department of labor. Your lawyers can submit the job description and the company will evaluate and let you know if it required Bachelor's degree.

All the best!!

Talk to your lawyer. There are few education evaluation firms which are accredited. I think have it reevaluated. Your lawyer should be the best person to advise.

Topic: H1b extension processing time - Vermont

Not for every case but the number of RFEs being issued has skyrocketed after Trump EO "Buy American, Hire American". USCIS has to report back what actions they have taken to adhere to the EO. Not only REFs but there has been an increase in denial rate too.

Topic: H1-B Amendment , Normal or Premium ?

Go for normal processing since you have time till 2019 and yes with the new memo, all amendments will be treated as new petition and owns lies on petitioner to prove high skill requirement.

Its not hard rule that PP will result in RFEs, the only think to consider is if the office needs time and the 15 days clock is running so they issue an RFE.

I dont see in near future the H1B approval going back to 6 months as DACA which had about 800K petition annually is no longer there (till congress decides to back it or Trump signs an EO). right know its 75 days on an average.

Hope this helps!

Topic: VISA and I94 expired

Thats right. The question I have is that 2nd one was filed after both your H1 and I-94 expired. Did you talk to the lawyer who filed the 2nd petition? Keep us posted because I am very interested in knowing the outcome of the 2nd petition.

Topic: VISA and I94 expired

as long as I-94 was valid, you should be good. I am surprised that USCIS entertained the 2nd petition. The only reason I can think of is your employer would have provided the petition of the first H1.

Have you stated working with the new employer on receipt?

Topic: H1 stamping after client project closure

Agreed with response, in addition if at port of entry they do a secondary verification and that is to call and check at the place of employment. your H1B will be canceled and you will be asked to return home.

Its about how much appetite you have for risk.

Topic: VISA and I94 expired

The answer is no as you can only change employer if you are in H1B status with valid I-94. To transfer to a new employer you should be in active status.

Do you have a valid I-140? if yes then your new employer can request a H1 transfer with consular processing. Once H1 approved, you will need to exit US get your visa stamped and come back. Recommendation is to go with PP.

Hope this helps!!

Topic: H1B extension denied + further options

No limit on filing again. However as other user suggested, check you I-94. If its expired you have to leave the country immediately even if you file for extension after getting the denial notice.
Hope things work out for you.

Topic: H1B - H4 - Premium

No, there is nothing as PP for H4. Normally (in most of the cases) H1 and H4 do get approved simultaneously. There is no 15 day clock for H4s.

Topic: H1B - H4 - Premium

PP is only for H1B not H4. The moment H1 is approved H4 is also approved (in most cases) if there is any issue with H4 petition then USCIS can issue RFEs only for H4.

Hope this helps.

Topic: H1b extension processing time - Nebraska

Reason can be many for a RFE, if you are FTE and its an extension with approved I140 and nothing changed from the last approval then chances of getting FFE is remote. The most common reason why a RFE results from upgrading a case is USCIS have the 15 days deadline and if USCIS is not comfortable then they issue RFE to buy time.

I upgraded my case 2wice (one time after 2 months and one after 4 months) and both time it was transfers to new employer, both resulted in RFE and one was denied.

Suggestion is, based on your urgency or situation you can take a call.

Hope this help.
