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


Are we saying that we should leave work which we are doing and start roaming on roads to get something which should automatically come to us with respect & dignity?
Spend money - So should we bribe people sorry Lobby people ;)



Whatever the situation you can't even shed an ounce of ego isn't it? Where is your respect and dignity when you have to beg for the GC through letters and tweets towards congressmen? Wait and see, they will give the GC in a silver platter delivered to you just because you believe 'something which should automatically come to us with respect & dignity'. LOL

Topic: Quitting employer after GC



Yes, I forgot to mention, the fee was only for the I-485 application and the lawyer charges.


That's actually not too bad. I've heard Fragomen charges big corporations north of $20K for GC.



I know, right? And yes our attorney was Fragomen :) One of my other friend asked for a quote from Murthys the other day. The whole package for I-485. They quoted between 10-12K considering no RFEs. These immigration lawyers muse be awash with cash.

Topic: Quitting employer after GC

If you have an employer handbook, read it thoroughly. After you finish, read it again. Look for the fine print if they mention anywhere that if you quit the company within a specified time after getting your GC, you have to pay back the company the associated application fees, lawyer fees etc provided your company paid for it. One of my colleague found out the hard way. He got his GC 8 months back, put in his papers last month. When quitting the HR pointed out the fine print in the employer handbook which he had e-signed mentioning he had read the handbook and understood it.(Obviously he didn't read the whole handbook) Had to pay close to 13K before leaving.
So in any case if your employer had paid for your GC, check their clause before putting your papers. Most of the companies would have this clause as they are spending big money for your GC. But if you had paid for your own application, forget it. Coming to your point, there is no specified time period mentioned after which you can quit. In this forum also, I had read posts where people mentioned they quit before 1 month and had no problem during naturalization. But the majority I hear gives themselves a buffer of 6 months. Good luck!

Topic: N0 HR392 in DACA Bill

Exactly. HR392 and 6th year extension removal proposals are mutually exclusive of each other. If the current govt's position is to 'self deport' people waiting for Green cards, it makes no sense for them to support HR392 which grants GC to the same people and let them stay.
There are so much fear mongering among the threads. We do not know anything for now. Along with fear mongering, there are equal amounts of false optimism. There are people who stand their ground and say everything will be fine as if they get some inside info. I called out to one guy who was yelling at the top of his voice some days before in this forum, that the H4 EAD will not be going anywhere. As expected, he didn't reply. My point is, without any solid evidence, stop this fear mongering and false optimism. We can speculate, but don't sprout nonsense as solid news that is bound to happen. No one has any inside knowledge for something which may or may not happen.

Nikki Halley said - " we will remember this day" , "singled out" . After India voted against US for the Jerusalem mandate at UN. Best of luck if this HR 392 is going to pass which favors india. We are royally screwed.

Topic: H4 EAD Revocation rule

All offices will not have the same rule. I do not know which local office you have been, but at ours, there was just a sign, telling to keep our cell phones silent. There was no confiscation and all. You must have confused a local office with US embassy.

Topic: H4 EAD Revocation rule

You hit the nail on the head. We are not united. Look at the bickering in this thread itself.
I will tell you an example. Recently, I had to go to an Infopass at my local USCIS office. When I reached there, there were 2 Indian families and 3 Hispanic families in the waiting room. When one of the Indian guy saw me, he whipped out his Iphone X for show off and started playing with it. Would not even smile or acknowledge a fellow Indian. Same with the other Indian family also.
Whereas the Hispanic family (I came to know 2 of them were from Mexico and other from Colombia), one had a lawyer with them. They were sitting together, discussing, helping each other. The lawyer was talking in Spanish and giving free advice to the other guys.
And there were 3 of us, Indians, sitting on separate corners, trying to show off who had the expensive cell phone and giving attitude to each other. Without unity nothing is going to happen. We can bicker all we want here, but we will not account to anything happening.

Topic: Do you have all the rights immediately after I485 approval?

Chill man, it does not matter. Enjoy your greened life. There is no case of you having gone out of status since you should have an EAD. You can always go with the date in your physical green card.

Technically you are considered a permanent resident immediately after you get approved. And generally you will get the card in 5-7 business days. Remember to register in USPS to see the tracking from when it gets dispatched to when it reaches your mail box.

"It makes total sense for anyone to just takeout the meaningless per-country limit."

Makes total sense? I don't think any bill would pass just because it makes sense. If that is the case, the current federal tax bill would not have gone through.

Topic: H1B overstay for less than 180 days

This does not apply if your H1B 6th year is getting over. Once your 6th year H1B I-94 is over, you can apply for a new H1B only after your perm and I-140 is approved. If your perm and I-140 gets approved before the 6th year I-94 being not expired, this rule can be applied. Else it can't be.

Topic: H1B overstay for less than 180 days

"Will this cause a Visa overstay? i.e. filing an extension on 3rd March when my H1 is expiring on 14th March and then providing the I140 in May hoping that the H1b extension papers do not reach the hands of Visa officer by May."
_______________________________________________________________

It does not work this way. The only way you can file for H1B beyond your 6th year is if you have your perm and I-140 approved. So while filing the H1B itself you need to show proof of your I-140 approval. I know it is hard, but the only way is to go back to India, wait till the perm, I-140 gets approved. Extend your H1b based on your I-140, get it stamped and come over. The only good thing is you will not be impacted by the lottery.

Topic: 60 days grace period after h1b employee resigning

https://www.shrm.org/resourcesandtools/tools-and... Quoting from the article - 'Employers are required to notify the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) by letter when there has been any "material change" to the terms and conditions of an approved H-1B petition, such as when the employment of an H-1B employee has been terminated. '
Maybe the employer mentions in the letter how the employee is no longer working for the company. If he was terminated, he might have to enforce the rules told in the above article. There is no mention of what happens in case of resignation. I do not think anyone would voluntarily resign taking the risk anyway. Because if that was the case, we would have at least heard of someone who did this already. Maybe a lawyer would know better.

Topic: 60 days grace period after h1b employee resigning

As far as I know, the 60 day grace period is when the employer lays you off or fires you. I do not think you can just resign and stay for the 60 day grace period to look for another job.

Topic: Infosys GC 2017

There are some cases where they accepted affidavits in notarized formats. It is 50-50 depending on the person who is adjudicating. I knew some folks whose notarized affidavits got RFE mentioning they need the letter with company logo. They had to sent the emails as RFE response which they corresponded between the HR and them. The HR had clearly mentioned they have a policy of not sending out experience letters. So that worked in some cases. If you have such emails, better save them.

Topic: H4 EAD Beneficiaries

True. We should think in their point of view. Imagine if are working in India making 10 lakhs per year. If some foreigners come in and they work for 5 lakhs, would you welcome them with open arms, even if they were paying taxes? Same with people here. They see us as cheap labor. They do not care if you are 'Highly skilled' or making 300K. I can understand the sentiments of the people here against us and the admin is just catering to those sentiments. Whether it is right or wrong is another issue. As you said, the US is not obliged to provide us anything.

Topic: Now on H4 EAD

Agree with you. It is almost certain that this would go away. Also with HR392, I can see some people giving false hope that since it has 300 co sponsors, it would definitely go to the floor and get passed somehow. Looking at how things are, it is pretty bleak.

Man, some of those comments from the Brietbart article are pretty nasty. I hope I never come across any of those commentators . But if you look from their point of view, it is just like people from other countries coming over to India and start working. No one would like it.
