Looking for advice on separating from the Air Force. I’m on the VML to PCS in winter cycle of this year but I want to separate instead of extending my active duty service commitment.

Hi! First off, I know none of this constitutes legal advice, etc., but I’d like some outside perspectives and advice here.

My wife found out she makes ~25% less that her male co-worker did when he was her level of seniority, and they have the same job responsibilities and the exact same credentials (same undergrad, masters program, etc.); he now makes 50% more than she does, but has 3 more years of WE, so to me that’s not as applicable.

Does she have a claim here? Need any other details?

Anybody saw their request to expedite EAD processing denied? How did you handle it?


I accepted an offer from another consulting firm and my H1B visa has also been transferred. I have not joined the new role yet. However I had been interviewing with another firm and expecting an offer I know this is not the best practice but is it allowed to accept another offer even though H1 transfer has been approved through another employer? If I accept the second offer does this raise any red flags with USCIS as they potentially see 2 almost consecutive visa transfer requests?


Hi fishes! When do you think I can expect my GC?

Eb1c I-140 and I-485 filed concurrently back in March this year (PD- March 9th). Even I140 is yet to be approved. Is even Q1 22 realistic?

Have got 2 recent offers and initiated the transfer process with both the firms. I am currently out of status and in H1B grace period. I had to opt for this option due to visa uncertainty. (contd)

EY email is a bit unclear... it says:
“H-1b petition has been accepted by USCIS”
...does that mean selected?
