I paid a one time fee, before I need to talk to him n get this cleared out, I would like to know my options. I am doing my homework to respond to his answers.
Your statements are contradicting,
Statement1: If the attorney determines that it was the fault of USCIS, they can file an I-290B
Statement 2: Either way, the maximum you could have gotten was 3 years, but it is possible to get less.
Asume that attorney did not make a mistake I-129/LCA and you are saying it is possible to get less time duration so where does the fault of USCIS fall in..
In my initial request, I asked- Can I request USCIS to reconsider their extension period decision (assuming no mistake done by attorney/USCIS) and if so, how
What if my attorney made a mistake by putting in one year period only in the 129/LCA . Is there a way to correct it......
Yes ! Little history behind to clear your answer.
July 2010 - H1b approved - valid upt 7/15/2013
Nov 2010 - Labour Approved
Feb 2011 - I-140 Approved
June 2013 - H1b extension request
July 2013 - got approved for one year only - that too I did it in Premium Processing and those huge USCIS fees, attorney fees )
I just asked him and added points from your reply, he got mad at me, below is his response,
nafees, stick to doing your I.T. work and do not interpret uscis laws/policies. You can "request" 3 year extension but it is unto them of how long they want to approve it. I've seen quota cases get approved for 3 months
Can I approach the USCIS over the phone by giving in the right information about the petitioner and plantiff, ?
