Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act

Hi Timetoact

I am not an IV member neither i am asking anyone to become one. You can correct me if i am wrong but currently we do not have any strategy nor direction and IV seems to be the only group that at least has some strategy i am not asking you to trust them or that their intentions are good however it does not hurt to follow a few things that they have suggested for example reaching out to your congressmen or liking a tweet from Kevin Yoder. These are things that you already suggested in your post.

I have not donated to IV, but i did write a letter to my congressmen as it did not take any time and i did like the tweet from Kevin Yoder when he posted about HR 392.

I will be happy to follow any other strategy if there is one and does not involve me donating money.

to Ksrfi

I am not saying that these cases are exactly same.
However if DACA becomes law and all these kidsa get GC's then the status of our children (Legal immigrants) will essentially become worse once they turn 21. They will have to be on an independent F1 visa and stand again in an endless inline. Think hard may be you will understand the similarities.

Topic: Aging out Kids - Forum for discussion

I suggest contact Kevin Yoder Sponsor of HR 392 write a detail letter explaining your situation. He needs these real stories for him to help build his case to push this bill forward.
I also read somewhere that he was planning to explore if there is any possibility to attached the HR 392 to the DACA bill.
The situation that this thread is addressing is quite similar to the DACA situation. These kids were brought here by the parents and essentially their all young adulthood has been or will be spent in US. Hence asking them to leave after they turn 21 is not fair.

Topic: H.R. 392, Fairness for High Skilled Immigrants Act

Hi All,

First off, I don't have any opinion about IV, i am not a fan nor i am against them. I have not donated anything to them in the past and do not have any plans of doing so in future, That said I do care about backlogs and how it affect few countries specifically India.

I did dial into their (IV) July conference call as a listener. One of the things that made sense was that there is no other alternative except this bill and however slim the chances may be of its passage this is the only option in front of us to reduce wait times significantly. IV is saying that they are now targeting 290 cosponsors to invoke some special procedure (similar to what was done to pass HR 699). We are already at 234 that's only 56 short of 290.
Hence why not help them/ourselves (not by donating to IV) but by reaching out to our congressmen in our district. Just write them an email explaining why this is a commonsense bill and how you would benefit.

To make things simple, I am listing below congressmen from few states which have not cosponsored the bill yet. The congressmen in my district have already sponsored the bill hence i request you to take action and email your congressman from the list below:


New Jersey:
Republican: Rodney Frelinghuysen - 11th district - Morris country

Topic: I-539 : Processing time for H4 to F1

Hi All,

I have a unique situation and i need some input from you all.
- I am currently on H1-b visa that is expiring in May 2019.
- My wife was on H4 visa until march 31st 2017 (visa was applied and approved until May 2019), She was working for consulting firm on EAD (H4 EAD is valid until September 31st 2017). We both travelled to India and got our visas stamped hence my wife’s H4 visa was stamped in India and the stamp is valid until May 2019.
- On March 31st 2017 the consulting company applied for H1B visa for my wife (under premium processing). Hence she is currently on H1B status, however her project is about to end and she may not continue to work for the employer anymore.
- I have discussed with my attorney and have been told that since she did not travel post H1B approval her H4 stamp is still considered valid and that she can use that to travel out of the country and re-instate her H4 status. I am also told that she can work on H4 EAD (until it expires i.e. September 31, 2017) only after she has re-instated her H4 status.

Question:
Which is the nearest country that we can travel to to get her I-94 re-instated in the H4 status?
I was thinking Canada or Mexico but then i found out that they do not issue a new I-94 while returning from Canada or Mexico unless you stay more than 30 days. And that you do not even need a US visa stamped on your passport to return from these two countries. Any suggestions would be really appreciated.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Topic: I-140 EAD approved by OMB

Hi All

I have been a reader of this forum for a long time. I have benefited from it in terms of very useful opinion and suggestion. I believe that this is a great forum in which a lot of people with great ideas contribute to help each other.

However sometimes we let ourselves get diverted from the main goal (which I believe is a fair process through which we all can get green cards faster) by multiple suggestions on how to achieve it. There are multiple suggestions (HR213, not counting family members etc.). In my view we need not necessarily focus on one particular suggestion (which sometimes is helpful). We can work in parallel on all of them as long as we have an approach.

I think working on HR 213 is probably our best short given that it already has 94 co-sponsors. did anyone noticed that 25 people co-sponsored the bill early September (in just 2 days)
Here is the approach that I feel could work for H.R.213 (suggested by someone else earlier, so I do not want to take credit for it). and do the following:
1. We create a list of all the representatives (happy to create) in House and senate who have not already co-sponsored the bill

2. Reach out to them

a. Email (happy to create a template) - Should be done using the govt. website which mails them directly and gets a response. I have done this multiple times and will surely get a response.

b. Meet them in person (may be difficult for people but very effective)

3. Count the number of people who have approached these representatives

4. Once each representative has been approached by 50 or more people we cut his name from the list (thinking is that if he doesn’t change his mind then it’s not going to happen)


My view is that everyone agrees with the content/intent of what this bill is proposing, however many are unaware or not motivated (probably no one has approached them yet from their constituency) however when and if someone approaches them then they will most likely look at this favorably.

Let me know how you guys feel about this.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

Hello - will really appreciate any help suggestion on the below scenario

I am currently on H1b working for company A and my wife's H4 and H4 EAD has been approved until Sep 2017.

Now I am moving to employer B. Employer B will file for my H1 and H4 (wife) extention until May-2019 however they are not filling EAD.

Question:
Will the approval of new H4 cancel the existing EAD (based on previous H4)?
i.e. Can my wife continue to work on the exiting approved EAD after a new H4 has been approved.

Will really appreciate the help.

Topic: H1 to EAD H4 Conversion

To Veshwar

I always thought that attorneys recomend to refile H4 when transfering H1 to a different employer for the following reasons:
1. Both have the same dates (expiration dates).
2. Because H4 is a dependent visa and needs to be in sync with the H1 visa

Also in my case it could save a lot of time since H1 will be filed in premium processing. and hence H4 and EAD will be processed along with H1 i.e. within 2 to 3 weeks.

Would really appreciate if you could comment on the above.

Thanks,

Hello,

Would really appreciate if someone can comment on the below question.

I am currently working with employer A with approved I-140 and valid H1 till Sep- 2017. I have applied for my wife's H4 and H4-EAD in Nov'2015 both applications are currently pending. I am planning to move to employer B.

I understand that if you file H4 and H4 EAD with H1B filed in premium processing they are all adjudicated and approved together.

QUESTION - If I move to employer B can I refile for my wife's H4 and H4-EAD again along with H1 transfer (which will be in premium) or do I have to wait for the previously filed H4 and H4 EAD applications to be processed before filing new ones.

Topic: Change of effective date on H4 visa application

To Desi Amigo,

Thanks a lot for the suggestion.

Is there another way out, my understanding is that if there is a H4 visa application pending then a person is not considered out of status. The only risk is that if the application gets approved before Feb 23rd with an effective date of Feb 23.

Hence what if: I file a second H4 visa application and not withdraw the first one. Two out comes are possible
1. If the first H4 visa application is approved/Adjudicated before Feb 23rd: I am still not considered out of status because the second H4 visa application pending. Hence i would not have to leave US as there is a pending H4 application
2. If the first H4 visa application is approved/adjudicated post Feb 23rd: Then my stay from Jan 1 until the date the application is adjudicated is considered legal. Then i can withdraw the second application.

this way i will not have worry about refiling H4 EAD again.

Topic: H1 to EAD H4 Conversion

Hi All,

Would really appreciate any help on the below query.

I am currently on H1 B visa which is expiring on Feb 23, 2016. I have already applied (on Nov 17, 2015) for H4 and H4 EAD with an effective/change of status date of Feb 23, 2016. The application is currently pending with USCIS.

Unfortunately my employer has informed me of their decision to terminate my H1 B visa on Jan 1, 2016.

Question:
1. How can I change/amend the change of status date on H4 application from Feb 23, 2016 to Jan 1, 2016?

If the above is not possible then can you help answer the below:
2. What happens if USCIS adjudicates the H4 application on January 10, 2016 with the effective date of Feb 23, 2016. Will my stay from Jan 1 until Feb 23 be considered illegal

3. What happens if USCIS adjudicates the application on March 1, 2016 with the effective date of March 1, 2016 will my stay from Jan 1, 2016 to March 1, 2016 considered illegal.

Will really appreciate your thoughts on the above scenarios.
