Hello! My name is***** and I am a licensed attorney with more than 14 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to help.

There is no way to guarantee that there will not be an issue. Assuming that you don't have an H-1B visa stamp at all, you are going to have to get one eventually. Many H-1B cases from India are placed in Administrative Processing. Since they will probably have to re-run your background check, there is a good chance that your case will be placed into Administrative Processing. The faster you go for stamping, the better chance you have to get the visa stamp before October 1st when you have to travel to the U.S. to work. The only other option is to leave your passport alone and have the visa stamp match your passport, but even then this is no guarantee that your case will not be placed into Administrative Processing.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions and there is no additional charge. Also, should you need to chat on the phone, private email or need help reviewing documentation, I am happy to do so for a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested in these – I am happy to give you more details! If you have no further questions (at this time) please leave a positive rating for my service. I would sincerely ***** ***** You can do that by clicking on the 3rd, 4th or 5th stars or smiley faces if you see them.
