    I thought EB2 vs EB3 is mainly determined by what your job requires.. You may have a Masters but if your JD does not require one, the company cannot file you on EB2.

    The job must qualify for EB2 first, with at least min prevailing wage!
    Which means BS+5 yrs of Progressive Exp or MS as min requirement.

    Friends,

    I did a quick search and did not find answer to this. Apologise if this is a repost.

    But a co-worker of mine wants to travel on AP. After coming back, he will join my company (right now he is a contractor) as a perm employee on H1. Is it possible and allowed? Can he transfer H1 after using AP?

    Our company attorney confirmed that his H1B will remain valid even after using AP. But she is not sure about transfer. I will post her reply once she gets back to him. But in meantime, if anyone has any idea about this, please share.


    Thats correct. Once you use AP, you loose H1 status and your status is "Adjustment of Status".

    All that appears on this website is discussions about EAD, AP, buying a house etc. etc...These are very informative and useful.

    But, what about our larger goals? Will we ever get out of this rut? When will the retrogression end?

    Minimal response so far. Please have this as an action item and please remove all the old links that are less valid now. If we can have some fresh links and those which can blink , it may attract attention. I know the other way will be when the situation changes like a job loss or out of status.. but I think we dont need to wait too long..

    Can the spouse not get here own work permit such as H1-B, etc after she come here on a H4?

    Also, can she be not added to the GC process at the time te PD becomes current?

    How true! In fact not only we have to maintain H1B to be able to "bring" spouses but we have to MAINTAIN H1B until the our PD becomes current to be able to maintain spouse's H4 status.

    THIS SUCKS. Is there any thread which discusses this issue in detail?

    No I wouldn't. Get it from the your child's pediatrician since they know the case history and will be able to word it correctly. Remember that the letter from the pediatrician is the basis which the certified civil curgeon for USCIS will use to apply for a waiver if he/she thinks it is necessary.

    Sameet and others,

    I checked with both pediatrician and Civil surgeon and they both are of the opinion that TST test would not impact a nursing mom.

    My attorney told me that my wife needs to get back before her scheduled trip. This would incur huge costs plus it would be difficult to get the seat arrangements. ( We have a twins and we have seats with bassinets for the infants). My father is also travelling with her.

    Is it possible to ask 1 month extension for RFE based on the difficulties. I'm EB3 IND PD 2003 and I dont think our I-485 is waiting for adjudication any time soon.

    I've scheduled an infopass appointment tomorrow. What are the chances of getting an extension when I present my case to IO?

    I'm worried and it makes us very anxious.

    I believe that there is a great flaw in the way the USCIS allocates VISA NUMBERS among EB1, EB2 and EB3 which is very much evident and if we can stand united we can get something done.

    After carefully observing the trend in VISA approval and VISA bulletins, It is a reality that EB3-I is not moving and at the same time EB2 and EB1 are moving fast in relative terms and probably may even become current ( EB1 is already current ), But one thing USCIS is clearly not considering is the Priority Date, which basically means that they are not giving a damn thing about how long the person from EB3-I is waiting for. Here is my suggestion and some of the IV representatives need to analyse what Iam gonna say and see if they can stand up. Being an EB3-I india myself, i totally agree that EB1 and EB2 should be given a weightage and some preference over EB3, but I dont agree to what USCIS is currently following, EB2 With priority 2006 getting ahead of EB3-I with priority date 2001. This is ridiculous and to even think about it, it just sounds stupid. What they can do is , They can move the Dates in both Categories while giving preference to EB1 and EB2 first.

    Please dont jump up & down before i complete. Iam just giving you an example of how things should work and how they can move dates forward for all 3 categories while maintaining that EB1 and EB2 gets preference over EB3. Let us ignore Eb1, since it is already current. Now Coming to Eb2, the priority Date is 2004 for them.Ideally speaking, They should not move them ahead until atleast EB3 reaches 2004. But once Both EB2 and EB3 reaches the priority date of 2004, Obviously EB2 gets the preference over Eb3 and EB2 will start to move ahead but not by much, let us say 1 year. Now, Clearly, EB2 is still given the extra preference over EB3 but at the same time, we are maintaining the priority dates between EB2 and EB3 as close as possible so that the system is not totally unfair to EB3 filers. I think, as one of the un-biased Organisation we should stand up against this unfair treatment in general. I hope even EB-2 will understand what iam trying to say.

    let me know if iam making any sense. If am wrong, also let me know. So that i can get a better understanding of things and correct myself.

    I think SKIL bill is our only hope. Unlike CIR, it looks like this bill has been introduced in both the houses which is a good sign. This bill has more number of sponsers from the House than in the Senate. That's another good sign.

    Senate Bill - S.2691

    You can keep your PD if your 140 is approved from your current employer. I know of a person who did this succesfully.
    But I believe you need to restart your greencard application from scratch.

    What is IV's position on more H1Bs?

    IV does not support, nor oppose H1-increase as far as I know, that is not on the agenda at all. IV was formed by and for EB -applicants to ease some of the hardships faced by the EB Community and to end the visa-number unavailability and retrogression.

    USCIS Update
    July 13, 2007
    USCIS ISSUES SERVICE CENTER RECEIPTING UPDATE
    WASHINGTON � In an effort to give our customers accurate information about current receipting times and service level commitments, United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) is providing the following projections concerning fee receipting and data entry processing of cases currently at USCIS Service Centers as well as the anticipated in time-compliance dates at each site.
    California Service Center
    USCIS expects to provide in time-compliance for receipting of form types listed below:
    Data Entry:
    Compliant BY
    N-400
    7/18/2007
    All other forms are currently in time-compliance.
    Nebraska Service Center
    USCIS expects to provide in time-compliance for receipting of form types listed below:
    Data Entry:
    Compliant BY
    I-131
    7/18/2007
    I-360
    7/18/2007
    I-485
    7/18/2007
    I-140
    7/18/2007
    N-400
    7/18/2007
    All other forms are currently in time-compliance.
    Texas Service Center
    USCIS expects to provide in time-compliance for receipting of form types listed below:
    Data Entry:
    Compliant BY
    I-485 (EB)
    8/3/2007
    N-400
    8/10/2007
    I-131
    8/3/2007
    I-765
    8/3/2007
    I-140
    8/3/2007
    All other forms are currently in time-compliance.
    Vermont Service Center
    USCIS expects to provide in time-compliance for receipting of form types listed below:
    Data Entry:
    Compliant BY
    I-130
    7/28/2007
    I-751
    7/28/2007
    N-400
    7/28/2007
    All other forms are currently in time-compliance
    USCIS is making every effort to address the delay in its data entry and fee receipting process. The prioritization of data entry for specific form-types was a proactive measure on the part of Service Centers to address the unprecedented level of H-1B filings received on April 2nd and 3rd, 2007, as well as the unprecedented level of filings for other immigration benefits. USCIS would like to assure its customers that the delay in data entry and fee receipting will not affect Change of Status or Extension of Stay eligibility, assuming all other eligibility requirements are satisfied. USCIS would also like to assure its customers that per existing policies and procedures, requests for Premium Processing Service will continue to be processed within 15 days. USCIS wishes to assure all customers that the original received date (the date which the document is date stamped) will be honored and recorded on the receipt notice. This date will appear in the "Received Date" box on Form I-797, Notice of Action. The received date is different from the "Notice Date", which also appears on Form I-797. The Notice Date is the date the receipt notice was actually generated.
    � USCIS �




    Does the above announcement mean that we can expect for all filers before July 13th to receive the receipts by 08/03/2007 ???

    Hi All

    I have been following this thread for the last few days and wanted to share some info. Hoping it would be useful.

    I entered the country in Jan 08 using the AP while I was still working for my GC sponsoring employer. Then in June 08 I joined another employer by transferring my H1B to the new employer. I did have the option of using EAD but I wasn't sure if the renewal will come before the expiry of current EAD. So decided to transfer H1 and my new employer graciously agreed to it.

    We did a premium transfer so got the approval in 2 weeks. Money does wonders (Almost like the proverbial paper weight with files). I confirm that the I94# number on I797 approval notice is same as the I94# number I got when entering the country in Jan 08.

    So this should be a good news for folks who are trying to do the same. I am in a different boat right now. I have to travel to India this November. I plan to return using AP. But now my employer is different from my GC sponsoring employer. Another issue is that I am going only for two weeks while my wife will be in India till Mid Jan. So we will enter US separately using AP. Please share your thoughts if you have been in this situation.

    After my AP approval notice email, all our(four) 485s got an LUD on Mar 31st 2009.
    I applied AP only for myself and rest of the family did not.Service center is NSC. 485 recpt date is sept 11 2007.PD 2006 eb3/I. But we were issued one year EAD though eligible for 2 years since our PD is not current. Could it be because they sent 2nd FP notices? Are they sending FP notices for the second time these days? I heard some where that USCIS now can keep the FP notices valid for longer time than 15 months. We did ours in 2007 october. I know that USCIS has strange ways of dealing with things. But still....any insight is appreciated.

    thank you

    Amul.

    This is pure speculation on my part, but if CIS is returning visa numbers and there are now some visas available, it seems like it would make more sense for DOS to just make the returned visas available in the August bulletin, rather than flip flop on July once again.
