I am back. I have 3 questions i need answers to Here is the
i have 3 questions i need answers to Here is the prelude of my situation followed by a set of questions:I was employed with Taaratech LLC between March 2013 and Nov 2017 on a H1B( first for 1 year and extension for 3 years till dec 2017). I have a approved I140 cert through Taaratech with the 2009 Nov priority date ported over( see I140 approval copy attached).After waiting for 3 years for my visa number to be available and with no movement, I took an offer with Kforce and transferred my H1B in Dec 2017 and have my H1 valid till 2020(see approval notice I797 with Kforce). Kforce applied for my labor cert on day 1 and I have an approved labor cert with them i received on Aug 1 2018. I am between assignments in my 60 day grace period and Kforce said they will file for I140 once i am back on an assignment(which is reasonable).my main question is as follows:1. if i move to another company through a H1 transfer to a company who does not do GC processing (for example TCS), can i move back to Taaratech when a visa number is ***** and current and file for my AOS? I dont mind filing another H1 transfer back to Taaratech if needed.2. say for some reason i choose to go back to india or canada and work there. can i do counselor processing to file for my AOS when my visa number becomes available? should i maybe come back to the USA on say a H4 and file for it?(my wife had an approved H1 in march 2018 and currently having an amended petition for her new role)3. after the 60 day period(after september 11 2018), Kforce is telling me i can still stay in the country(upto 180 days) but can join a new contract only with an approved H1B which they have promised to apply in premium processing. this sounds risky and i definitely dont want to be out of status and considering switching to a H4 status as my wife has an amended H1 petition pending(previously was approved till 2020 but she had a job title change recently needing an amended petition.I think my bot***** *****ne is I dont want to restart my GC process (Labor is laborious!) everytime i do a H1 transfer and would like to reuse the approved application with Taaratech. … read more
