Thank you OP! What service line are you moving from and to?

No change in service lines. Strategy Analytics

I got my first RFE when filing amendment for wfh address last year and second RFE issued yesterday for change in base location (premium processing). So I have two active RFEs currently 🤦‍♀️ Hope this makes you feel better to know you aren’t the only one going through this!

Oh okay, I understand now. I didn’t opt for premium processing, the firm did, so I didn’t have a say. Also, I’m not in a position to return to my previous location. Long story short, I already moved to TX due to wfh and now just moving the base location to TX.

Is this your RFE Op ? If so, don’t worry it’s pretty common. In past 7 years, I received RFE 4 times. Almost every time, it was about Speciality occupation, Employer-Employee relationship (standard RFEs). I also feel like they put things on RFE to buy more time

And, honestly, COVID does not or should not matter in their evaluation.

OP, people get RFEs for even FAANG so stay positive. It’s their SOP to give RFE to x number of applications

Damn! Just applied for my H1 Transfer from D to FAANG for similar role.

Any idea what the RFE is for? What companies are you transferring between?

Sure, I’m trying my best to stay calm. Thank you for the heads up 👍

Wow! Do you know what additional info are they asking for?

Not yet. Awaiting info from Fragomen

Can you still move despite the RFP? Or do you have to wait till it get resolved? Asking because I am considering putting in my 2 weeks

Yes, agree. I took that risk

Is it the same speciality occupation?

Thank you so much for the insight and your wishes. I had the same hope with MBB and joined on receipt. I’ll see what the partner says after the decision. I’ll keep you posted. 🙏👍

@pwc3 Rfe for address change, that is insane. What’s the reason for that?

Yeah! It’s random!

I have received innumerable RFEs till date, fortunately those were cleared. If your I-94 is valid and previous employer has not revoked it yet, in case of any rejection, present employer may refile it. There are backlogs in USCIS offices, my wife's H4 got transferred to another center after the Biometric and no news after that for a month or so. Also the new H1 season started, so there would be a delay now

Does my spouse qualify for H4 EAD if I am on my first H1B and my Perm application has not been initiated by my firm?

I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal).
My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
