I need assistance regarding immigration. I had F1 visa valid
I need assistance regarding immigration. I had F1 visa valid till Feb 22. I was under 60 day grace period when my H1B lottery was picked up on March 30th. As per company's lawyer, we had 90 days to file the H1B petition. But since the rules for H1B were changed this year, as per new rules we had to file an H1B petition before my grace period expires i.e. before April 22. I brought this to my lawyer's attention on Apr.2, but she said we still have 90 days to apply. So I trusted her. But now after an Executive Order was signed by the president, which basically bars entry in the states, my H1B petition has become extremely complicated. Now our lawyer wants me to file an B2 visa as Nunc Pro Tunc, which would ask USCIS to grant me an B2 visa starting from Feb 2020 with Covid 19 as a reason for the delay in change of status. And once B2 is approved we would go with premium processing for the H1B application. … read more
