D 🐠 Anyone filed for H1B extension recently? Should I push our law firm to file before sept so that I can at least get an RFE?

My H1B expires feb 19. This will be the first extension based on my i140

Yes starting now is a good time - they take forever to prepare a response . they took 3 months for mine then went into RFE , then denied and now they are refiling . Glad I started to push them early .

That’s scary — what is your job profile Manager 1

I believe H1b folks US may have lot more to worry about apart from COVID & Layoffs. This section of EO:

I love the bowl so I decided to post my grievance here. My apt is charging an exorbitant amount because I didn’t give 60 days notice before the end of my lease that I’ll be moving out.

I’m experiencing a lot of miscommunication personally and at work. People say to me “we’ll that’s not what you said” “you didn’t make that clear” “you didn’t say that before.” In my mind, I feel I couldn’t have been more clear. It’s like there is a disconnect between what I think I am saying and the words coming out of my mouth. Then when I think back to the convo, I remember saying what I was thinking, and second guess the exact words I used. Does this happen to else?
