Hi All,

My amendment was filed Sep 23 2015 in regular processing and it's approved today June 23 2016. It took almost 9 months.

And more over this was approved after my employer filed and inquiry - just couple of days back.

Hi,

After a long wait, my Amendment petition which was filed on Sept 29th 2015, is finally approved on 24 June. My employer had filed an inquiry for this petition last week.

Now, the wait begins for my extension to get approved.

Guys can anyone share what documents did USCIS asked in RFE from the people who got RFE's so that we can come to know the types of document they are asking in Amendments.

It will be great help for people who are still waiting or might get RFE in future.

Thanks

Thanks Harisai.

This is very beneficial information. I think our case looks same because I also got RFE last week. Waiting on the letter from USCIS but I am also working through prime vendor due to which I can't get client letter.

I hope you might be able to submit these documents as it's doesn't look any difficult.

I wish you best of luck and wish that our RFE's would go smooth without any issue.


Thanks

Also can someone tell me if someone is seeing approvals for H1 Amendment applied in Nov. Mine is like 11/19 is the application date. But actually I got a RFE in Apr around 18th or 20th for a client letter and we replied it by May 15th... Since then it says we received ur response for RFE and our California center will process it. I have my extension due in Nov. Once I get amendment approved.. next would be apply for extention... not sure how many decades that will take.

I feel these USCIS guys have become like indian Govt employees... money minded buggers...

1. How long will it take to receive a receipt notice. - You should get it in 1-2 months

2. What will be the usual processing time in regular processing. - for me it took exactly 8 months. should be faster now

3. Can I work with a approved LCA while waiting for the amendment receipt num. - You can work as long as your I94 is valid and post I-94 validity 240 working days..

Not to worry. Hope this information helps!!

My H1B amendment case was received on Sep 3rd,2015 by USCIS.

Since no progress made after Sep 25th,2015 with receipt received from USCIS, my lawyer placed a service inquiry on my case.

Response was the case was on hold due to security check.

Haven't heard back from USCIS anymore since May 2016. It's been 10 months.

Will come back to reply to this post if there are any updates.

Thank you for your info. I asked my lawyer if I need to submit any materials to clear the hold. His response was no action required. Let's see what happens after another mouth.
