    This is the sad reality. A lot of people applied using sub labor during the June and July fiasco. A lot of people made it through the July 15th deadline by atleast filing a 140 through sub labor.
    Now USCIS is processing all these 140s and as they have old dates, they are becoming approvable.
    As long as there are visas with old dates approvable - USICS will exhaust them. As long as USCIS exhausts old visas, DOS need not move the dates forward.

    The only one-time $50 contribution option I saw was the one that said "$50 and subscribe for one month", I assume that was a one time $50 option.

    Not that I don't want to contribute on a recurrent basis, but I already have an indefinite $50 recurring option set up since 2007.

    And I look forward to seeing y'all in the "Contributors only" forum.

    Thank you. In future we will integrate both by verifying members. and move those members in the Contributor's area on the forums.

    You can now see that your status as a member is 'donor' instead of a junior/senior member.

    I will do $20. This FIOA is vital to the transparency of the system and surfacing this information would provide valuable insights that will perhaps bring closure to VB guessing games/forward movement prediction.
    What's core team take on this ?

    Now that your faith is restored, I'm assuming we'll see you in DC? :)

    Quick question... why is the faith in an organization so shaky, like a suspicious spouse? :)

    The efforts that the core team puts into this, as also those of other active members of the community, and the recent events should provide a good grounding in IV's mission, intentions, and leadership.

    You have all the rights to question, for sure, but I would PM one of the moderators/core team. If my concerns aren't suitably addressed, I would feel free to post on the forum.


    Got few clarifications on this thread... Thanks for the same... Really good to know that my apprehensions were proved false....

    We can make it at 9:00 if it helps our friends from West coast.

    Sounds reasonable. Newbie2020 and others, does 9:00 PM EST sound ok to you guys ? We can cut down the call to about 45 mins to enable early risers to get to bed.

    I just saw this post and I would like to understand a bit more about what you read. So, I have two questions for you:

    1. What is your EB category?
    - I am EB2 India Sept 2006.
    2. What exactly did the memo say? Now be careful and think hard before you post.
    - I can't reproduce as it is, as I just had a cursoy look at it. I just went through it. I was more worried about my Namecheck, as she hadn't said she would let me know about my Namecheck as of the moment.
    When she showed it to me, I was expecting that the memo would be from USCIS, but it was clearly written at the top as Department of State?
    For instance, you may cover the following in your post:
    - Who was it addressed to?
    I don't remeber.
    - What was the subject?
    It was some thing like 245- xxxxx India/China
    - Was it about about EB or FB?
    It was about EB and she said it is for EB2 India/China
    - Did it mention any dates?
    Not Sure
    - Did it mention any country names?
    - Yes. India/China
    - Was there anything about what the adjudicators are supposed to do?
    I don't remember exactly. But at the bottom it URGENT was written three times. The IO said they just received it and it supersedes everything.
    - Which city/state was this?
    In Midwest.

    Your response will be very helpful.


    I really don't understand why people think I am lying????
    When I read the memo, I was more worried about my name check and whether she would check the status of it than about this, as anyhow my dates are not current. After showing the memo, she did offer to check the status.

    With all the experience our guys have with USCIS officers and staff, it's hard to belive an IO would be that helpful? But, she's and even the staff at this office is not as bad as others have experienced.

    I was even telling my wife about the behaviour and how staff at other offices behave.

    What the first post might mean is this.

    DOS has already allocated the available visa numbers for this fiscal to qualifying pending cases. There are are no more visas left to allocate.

    It is still completely possible that there are ~ 14,000 pending cases with visas already allocated - simply awaiting approval by USCIS.


    The original post means nothing - IT IS NOT NEWS

    Sorry for all the color - just trying to allay fears.

    This is what I thought and this is how it should be...

    Thanks deecha for your response , I am sorry that i was unable to frame the question properly.My question is traing period (July 1st 2004 to Aug 30th 2004 = 60 days) without pay on H1B is treated as Out Of Status??? Is this period(July 1st 2004 to Aug 30th 2004 = 60 days) counted towards 180 Days period (to be covered under 2445(K)) or not?

    For a new H1B, a grace period of up to 60 days is allowed before you can start work after entering the country. However, you were already in H1 status and this was a transfer and If you did not get pay stubs for those 60 days, then unfortunately for you, my friend, you were out of status and this period would be counted towards it. There might be other mitigating circumstances you could use to qualify those 60 days as "work" for your employer. You will need to consult a good lawyer and be on good terms with your (ex ?) employer and have his co-operation. If you're in Michigan, I can recommend a good lawyer. PM me.

    In my case (see above), I inadvertently left the country in '04, without realizing I may not be allowed back in (I did not even have AP) and I also got lucky on two counts i) My employers petition was approved in just 13 days (non-premium processing) ;and ii) I was able to get a visa stamp in home country without a visa interview (but that scheme was terminated the same month due to other consular concerns).

    Change this title to december06 marathon.

    We should have one marathon every month and there will be members willing to contribute $20 every month. By changing the title to december marathon, we would psychologically make people to get ready for every month. This way, we do not have to put effort every time to members think about contributing.

    Contributing will become their routine part of thinking and also $20 is not a big deal for our cause.

    I am ready for $20.00 every month from now on. THere will be lot of guys like me and the change in title will make it happen by creating this title every month and keeping it on home page/top.

    Not sure about the news, but based on my and our experiences with uscis,I have to say these two IO are EXCEPTIONALLY friendly. You can casually walk up to an IO after taking fingerprint? I thought you would be arrested if you go to any uscis office after taking the finger print. You will receive call from IO to give missing material? I suppose there is something called "RFE", and they are never afraid to use RFE, even for most minor and unnecessary reasons. Gee, if only half of the IO are good as this, there will not be any immigration problem anymore.
    Today we've received Two Sensational News About VISA# consumed.

    1) CableChing visiting ASC And IO informing him about Circular

She showed me DOS Memo she just received about no more visas for India/China EB2 for this fiscal year. She did infoact show us the memo.

    She did check mine and my wife's Name Check. Luckily our name check is cleared and she told we have to just wait for the visa numbers.

    2) chintainfogc
    Junior Member

    I dont think so, my friend gave me this information - i am not sure its reliable or not;

    One of my friend received a call from IO Adjucating officer yesterday
    and it seems adjucating officer asked him to hurry up to send his wife's medicals because
    there were only 14K more visa numbers left as he did not include his wife's medicals (she was pregnant when they were filing I-485).
    He received his approval notice but not his wife's due to the missing medicals

    so relax guys - there could be atleast 13k visa numbers left.

    Two Sensational News Which one is true?
    Cableching says VISA# reached numerical limit and chintainfogc's friend said 14K / 13K VISA left.

    Please DO NOT post the video on Youtube. I fail to understand what good is the video going to do - its another matter to post the nanny's pics and probably on Sulekha or other sites - I'm still not able to convince myself if that will be required now that law authorities are involved - but the idea to post the actual video - what the hell is this - dont know what folks were thinking when they asked you to do so.

    Will pray for you and your family - May everything work out better for you folks going forward.

    I thank all new contributors, I think the efforts from members in the last 2 weeks are truly inspiring.

    If you haven't done already, please consider contributing and donating some money to IV. It is entirely run from our donations (and the shortfall made up by the core team).

    Talk is cheap guys, put your money where your mouth is so we can continue fighting for us all! The battle is won, the war is far from over

    I can not believe a Brit can misuse (may I say abuse) english! :) :) :) Don't get mad!

    Donate means: To present as a gift to a fund or cause;

    IV members are giving to help themselves. It is not a gift to anyone!

    If I was to determine your employment category by looking at this post... it would be EB3.

    You speak like a third class individual, must have travelled in third class compartment all your life, and now you are in third preference category..... Honestly i don't envy you.

    Moderators please do not respond to such people. I am happy you closed the thread.

    If he wants to use his freedom in the free country, he is free to poop in the lobby of his employer's office in front of everyone, center of the local mall and enjoy his freedom in the free country.

    We should not allow such selfish people who want to divide the community

    I have a nine month old and I can understand your feelings. I hired a nanny through sulekha but did a lot of reference checking and tried her when my parents were around here in US and they monitored her carefully and then gave us the green signal to keep her before they left.

    So not all nannies are like that. There are good nannies too. I pay a lot of money a lot more compared to what thunderbolt quoted ONLY because we found her to be nice and caring. She gets calls from her earlier employers who say their kids want to speak with nanny and say hello.

    It is just your bad luck. Nannycams are very useful and plan to get one for myself just for my satisfaction even though we are happy with our nanny.

    Like someone suggested - daycare would be a good option and I even thought about it but a 8 month old kid may catch alleriges easily and thats why I backed off too.

    Now about legal recourse - the best thing is to get out of any kind of mess. You were aware that you must not hire a nanny illegally and now you pay the price. No problem. Just say good bye to her and be careful next time

    I believe there are more than one admin here, why dont one of you take couple of minutes atleast for the sake of putting a stop to this false accusations. Why dont you track our IP address for the past 1-2 days. You know we have been posting simultaneously, why do you please take a step to find out if these messages are coming from the same machine or even same vicinity. Please do this for our sake. Coz I dont want others to believe in this accusations.

    This is a classic example for "HARD WORK PAYS BACK". Words won't match for the effort that IV core team has put in.
