Is this service free for a small question? I am currently
I am currently working in a company A on H1B (with approved I140). I got offers from 2 companies in a duration of few days, so the situation I was in I had to ask both companies ( B and C) to start my H1B transfer (change of employer petition under PP). Company B started first and the COE petition got approved (I797). My spouse has H4 EAD already from company A and company B filed I539(application to extend/change nonimmigrant) too. USCIS has sent a biometric appointment notice for my spouse for Mid Aug'19.Currently company C has also filed COE and it's petition is pending. Company C has also filed I539 for my spouse, but I have not received anything related to I539 or my H1B transfer result from USCIS related to company C.I am more inclined to join company C once the case is approved, so my question is should my spouse go for biometric appointment which I received from USCIS for company B? Or since I mostly don't want to join company B, my spouse can ignore her biometric appointment? … read more
