I have a question on my H1B situation; I work for company A

I have a question on my H1B situation; I work for company A with whom I have an approved H1B petition expiring on May 15' 2017. However my I-94 expired on Mar 18' 2017 (due to Passport expiry)Once I got my passport renewed, my employer (A) applied for H1 extension on Mar 08 (timely filed); However the issue is as follows1. For about 16 days since filing we were not getting the H1 Receipt notice & the checks were not encashed as well2. Today the Attorney office got a mail from USCIS saying that the fee amount is wrong & asking them to send the right fee; Mail has been dated Mar 103. They analyzed & concluded that they remitted higher fee amount; They had included the $500 fraud fee (which is not applicable for H1 extensions with same employer)4. I had wanted to convert the petition to Premium for faster processing & lawyer said this is the right chance; So along with the revised H1 fee check, we have also included a separate Premium Processing check & I-907My questions/concerns are as follows1. Will my PP conversion check be accepted & the case be converted to PP ?2. Any issue with my status here ? (Lawyer office maintains that since the original petition reached USCIS well in time, we are fine with the status)

I am an Indian Citizen residing in USA on US Card which i

I am an Indian Citizen residing in USA on US Green Card which i got 5 & 1/2 years ago as employment-based . I have already applied for US Citizenship in the last week of August month of 2016 by submitting N-400 for me and my spouse and not for my son who is only 14 yrs of age . Me and my spouse have already got our biometrics done in last week of September of 2016 as per the appointment letters mailed to us by USCIS . Just after 2 days of our Biometrics , our online status on USCIS Portal changed to CASE IS IN LINE FOR AN INTERVIEW , and it was the message like - we started the interview scheduling process for your Form N-400, Application for Naturalization , We will send you an interview notice. Please follow any instructions in the notice.But since then there is no change after 1 & 1/2 month have passed and my interview should be at St. Paul Office because i live in MN State . Please clarify the below :(1) What can be the reason of delay or can it be more wait ?(2) Can my spouse visit to India now and will come back if interview scheduled before his return date ?(3) Can my spouse visit to India after the interview is done but before the Oath Ceremoney ?(4) Will there be any problem in above 2 situations # 2 and # 3 while returning to USA ? Do they count minimum 6 month stay in USA in just preceding 12 months or 6 months stay in every 12 months or they just see overall minimum 30 months stay in USA out of immediately precedeing 60 months ?(5) I know that if U.S.Citizenship is given to me and my spouse , then after getting our certificate of citizenship at Oath Ceremony , we can also apply for certificate of citizenship for our 14 yrs old son . But is there any need to get such certificate for my son for such big fees because anyway my son will get the US Passport with us and he can keep one copy of passport in digital form if sometime his passport is lost so that he can get new passport again again .

Dear Mr Senmartin, Here is my situation: - I am a

Dear Mr Senmartin,Here is my situation:- I am a naturalized US Citizen.- I sponsored my husband for a green card, which he received in 2003. We left the US in 2004 to live in Canada and then Mexico.- We also hold Canadian citizenship.- We would like to return to the US to live. We are now in the US, having come here for a vacation/business trip, and then decided we'd like to stay. My husband was granted a B1B2 6 month visa at the border on entry.- The green card is expired (in 2013). However, it has not been formally abandoned via the I-407 (because we didn't know that we had to do this), and thus my husband is still on record as a green card holder.- He would not qualify for a SB-1.My questions:- Should we apply for a renewal of the green card via the I-90? How would we resolve the question of abandonment in this situation?- If the I-90 renewal is refused, would there by an negative repercussions? Or could we then simply file the I-407 and start the Adjustment of Status (Green Card) application process from scratch again?- Or do you recommend bypassing the I-90 option and going directly to the I-407 route and then starting the Adjustment of Status application all over again?Thank you.DC Day
