Madam, I am on H1B visa and I have 140 approved from my
Dear Sir/Madam,I am on H1B visa and I have 140 approved from my current employer. My wife also working on H1B and she also has 140 approved through her employer. Since my H1B is expiring on Dec 2016, insteady of extending H1B, i would like to convert my H1 to H4/EAD. After getting H4 EAD, I will continue working for my current employer.My question is, once I move to H4/EAD, in future if I need to come back to my H1B using approved I140, is it possible? Or do I need file for new H1B and go through the H1B quota?
I have a friend from Uganda who is here on an F-1 student
Hi Jennifer,I have a friend from Uganda who is here on an F-1 student visa. The F-1 visa expires 8/16 and her I-20 expires May 2017. She wants to become a permanent resident with a green card.From what I've read she needs to file an Adjustment of Status (I-485), but someone, either the school, an employer, or even a blood relative already here on a green card, has to file the form for her. Is that correct? Can she file for it on her own?Someone had to file the F-1 for her, so I'm guessing it was the school she attends. She's in college.Is there anything else that she will need to do.
My friend filed immigration papers adopted daughter. The
my friend filed immigration papers for his adopted daughter. The application was denied. He immigrated here on the visa lottery before the adoption was final. The adoption became final after he arrived in the US. She lived with him less than two years. He has no documentation to verify custody before the adoption was final.Is there any chance the adopted daughter can immigrate here? The father is her sole supporter. He sends money to her -- she is in boarding school now. In the summer she lives with the father's brother.
Thanks with this: I don't have all
FOR JAMES: Thanks for helping with this: I don't have all the details yet, but here's the scenario: Foreign national works for major cruise ship line, wants to become LPR. Am trying to find viable options for him. His sister is a USC, but preference F-4 would require a well over 20-year wait for available visa. Parents are LPRs, but I think he's married, so they couldn't sponsor him. He's from the Philippines, so ineligible for the Visa Lottery. Regarding the H-1B Visa: He has 5 years of foreign university credits in business management (I'm not sure how he'd do re: the 3/1 year experience rule). It seems he may have a chance with an H-1B visa.My question is, how does an employer-sponsored H-1B work in the real world? Would the employee approach his employer about sponsoring him? The cruise ship line he works for has him taking management classes, so they must value his potential, but I don't know if they'd be willing to pay the thousands of dollars in fees to process his H-1B visa.....Thanks

My fiancé is from the Congo in Africa. He did not declare his children or soon to be ex wife when he travelled to the U.S. and now he has his permanent residence. We are planning on getting married as soon as the divorce is final. He would really like to have his three children in the US. I am not sure what will happen because he was not honest about his marital status when he got his visa and documents to travel. What should we do?
