Topic: June VB Predictions


Have you seen the numbers for EB1 in 2016 ? Seriously you cannot tell me that all of a sudden we have ton of talented individuals pouring in. Someone needs to alert Trump admin about this EB1 abuse. Lol.

Honestly if I had that option I wud abuse too. Lol


________________________________________________________________________________________
Hard work does yield results, but working smart yields quicker results. Must say that all the EB1C guys have worked smart. If someone has the option to get a GC in 1 year, why would he want to wait for 70 years to get one ? Again, as long as the paperwork is within the framework of the EB1C process then where is the abuse ?
And yes, I agree with you, if we would have had the opportunity to file in EB1C then we would have done it too.

Resurrecting some old thread to clarify on an important aspect of job change with I-140 approved.

In PD porting with approved I-140 for job change scenarios, let's say company B files perm, get perm approval, file I-140 and get I-140 approval the EB 2 PD doesn't becomes current. What are the options available in that case?

Company A [employee has quit] - with whom EB3 I-140 was initially approved and it wasn't revoked.
Company B [Employee is working here] - with whom Eb2 I-140 is approved.

Can the beneficiary file for I-485 based on the fact that EB3 PD has become current although not working at the time for Company A?
______________________________________________________________________________________
Yes, the employee can port his EB3 date to EB2 & file for I 485

If yes, Does he have to first transfer his h1 first?
________________________________________________________________________________________
You mentioned that employee is already working at Company B, so his H1 would already have been transferred from Co A to Co B

Also, can Company A attorney's file I-485 on that approved Eb3 140 and take up the job offer and start working with Company A after GC is approved with Employer A.
______________________________________________________________________________________
Yes. To apply for a GC you need not be working for that Company. GC is always for future employment. So if the EB3 date becomes current, Co A can apply for I 485 & the employee can get his GC. However once he gets the GC it is good practice to work for a few months for the Co through whom you got the GC.

At what point does he need to be working at Company A while the I-1485 is under processing or that is not required at all?


As I said above, he need not be working for Company A at all. But after getting his GC it would be advisable to work for Company A at least for a few months.

@Aceman1 please correct me if am wrong

Wouldn't it all depend on the demand generated by the 13 month movement in the April bulletin ?



As EB3 I was current in July 2007, majority of the applicant with PD between Jan 2007 to June 2007 must have applied in July 2007 itself.

Hence the applicants from July 2007 to Jan 2008 will be the one who will file in April 2018, that would be effective 7 months.

Is my understanding correct ?


________________________________________________________________________________________________
I guess you are right. Again a lot of water would have flown under the bridge in these last 11 years, hence real demand will be assessed by the responses to the RFEs sent out for cases with PD between Jan 2007 to June 2007. Also interesting would be to see the demand for the cases between July 2007 & Jan 2008. Really there is no visibility at this point, but forward movement will depend on the demand generated.

Welcome back Ace !!! Can you give the optimistic\realistic\pessimistic dates for EB2 I and EB3 I again? Sorry to ask you again.



Eb2 I for this month bulletin 2 weeks.

Eb3 I, I am seeing a wide spectrum of approvals on the 2007 thread. No movement for people or actions beyond that in the other threads. So taking a guess and would say 3-4 months movement. May-June 2008.

Even if CO moves date aggressively for EB3 it won't generate enough applications

Why do you think sufficient demand will not be generated? Aren’t there enough I140 approvals in EB3 ?

However, looking at current trends:
- Low EB2ROW cases could help push EB2I this FY2018 with decent SO
- Low EB3ROW cases and low EB3I demand following Jul 2007 will help push EB3I even further this FY2018
Optimistically --> again not forecasting here but hoping that EB2I gets to ........ and EB3I gets to ...........
Leaving the blanks open for the sake of it. I may fill that in later but getting out for now!

Are the horizontal & vertical SOs applied on a quarterly or Annual basis ?

I believe similar confusion took place when China EB3 went ahead of EB2. There was also a petition to USCIS to ensure that EB2s were not allowed to downgrade.
Please see the below link
https://www.change.org/p/uscis-do-not-approve-eb...




I did not understand. I was checking the option of upgrading my EB3 to EB2 last year, I was told that I had to go through new ads, labor, and lot of tasks and it was supposed to take anywhere between 12-18 months.

So if you are downgrading you don't need the perm again?

I have only an approved 140.


__________________________________________________________________________________________________
EB3 to EB2 definitely needs to go through the PERM process. But I believe downgrading your EB2 to EB3 requires only filing of an amended I140 petition. I think in the Chinese context this was done taking advantage of a 2007 Neufeld Memo which made exceptions for filing the subsequent/amended I-140 petition in instances where the amended petition is requesting a different visa classification than the visa classification requested in the previously filed petition.
However in the Indian context that time has not yet come & we don't even know whether it will. Moreover today's times are different. Not sure how easy a downgrade will be.

If EB3I moves ahead of EB2I.. how difficult is it to downgrade to EB3I?
_______________________________________________________________
Maybe possible only for those who have an approved I140 in EB2 as well as EB3 & have not yet ported their PD from EB3 to EB2.

So that means only 174 EB3 I140 approvals for India between 2008 - June 2011 ?

Topic: Stamping Related Question


I am planning to attend for stamping. Someone please help me to understand...Does "Specialty Occupation (wage Level, SOC code, Education, etc)" also affects the stamping too?.
______________________________
They will definitely not ask you why you consider your occupation to be a specialty occupation, but may ask you to specify your title & job duties. As far as education goes, they may ask for your educational certificates as evidence. In my interview I was asked what is my highest level of education.

CBP was kind enough to resolve this.
Congratulations !!! I am happy for you. I had suggested going to the CBP since I had personally experienced this in my wife’s case. There is absolutely no fear in facing the Authorities especially when you have the papers.
Wish you all the best in all your future immigration issues.

When you return from Europe, present your new I797A at the POE & you will get entry into the U S up to Aug 2021. After that you can plan on going for your new stamping anytime before Aug 2021.

Topic: Did not renew EAD on H4

EAD is not a status hence non renewal does not matter & will not impact H4 stamping
However if your wife intends working in the near future, I would recommend you renew her H4 EAD at the earliest. Will not be a good idea not to renew simply because of the speculation that H4 EAD may be revoked. Even if the rule not to grant H4EADs goes through, existing EADs will most probably be treated as valid until expiry or in accordance with a sunset clause specified in the rule. But as of today revocation of H4 EAD, if at all, seems far away.

Topic: H4 EAD - Weird RFE

True, this is good idea and worth trying. Since the date of i797 is before the entry date, cbp might consider revising the i94. The only thing to be concerned is that your wife is already past approved date. I'm not sure if that would bother cbp officer at deferred inspection site.[/Q]
______________________________________________________________________________________________________
Interestingly when my wife & me had gone to the airport & showed the cbp officer the passport & the I797C, even without looking at anything he told us he understood why we were there & that this issue was quite common. He just took the passport & the I797C inside, I think updated the system , cancelled the previous H1B stamp date & rectified it to the new one. Was as simple as that hence I suggested the OP take a chance at the airport.

Topic: H4 EAD - Weird RFE

Before doing anything else, since your wife got the extension before she arrived, I would suggest you go tomorrow to the airport where your wife had arrived, ask for the CBP officer, show them your wife’s extended I797C & ask them to correct the I94 date on the passport.
My wife had a similar issue a couple of years back & we got it fixed at the airport. She had her extended I797C , returned without going for extension stamping , and although she showed the extended I797C the POE officer gave her I94 till the date of the original visa stamp expiry. We went to the airport the next day showed her extended I797C & the officer at the cbp corrected the stamp on the passport to the extended date. Also the I94 date online got updated.
Not legal advise, but something worth trying.
