My current firm is filing for H1B extension (and LCA) but at the same time, I am also interviewing and may potentially leave soon and my h1b will need to be transferred. Would this cause any issues?
Norwegian living in Norway with my Canadian GF. Planning to move to Canada due to her visa running out. SC at Deloitte working mainly as a Solution Architect + DevOps Engineer, but also experience with Cloud Strategy and IT DD's. Should I be able to find a company to sponsor my visa, or is my best bet an internal transfer? Any other tips? Thank you in advance!

I am currently going through a green card process with my company and they are asking me to sign an agreement, where my notice period is increased to 6 months and if I leave within 3 years, I have to repay the costs associated with my application. (Max 7k). Is this a standard practice?
What firms sponsor H1B
Peeps, what happened if when you got married to a citizen while in the process of getting work green card? Does the company make you return the fee they pay for the application?
Has anyone been denied H1B after receiving a RFE? I just received one and uscis basically wants to know how my job is related to my education.
Life of non-immigrants depend on the Visa they hold and it’s so sad these companies don’t have a team where we can speak to someone immediately in case of a visa emergency situation . In EY you need to submit a form and wait for days together to get a reply from a human. Mean time you would have gone through 5 anxiety attacks.
Has anyone tried Automatic Visa Revalidation reentering US from Canada on H1B after the EO? TiA
If you get laid off is it possible to go to a B2 visa and then back to a H1B? Extremely stressed with current situation and having purchased a house recently seems to be adding additional pressure.
After receiving Green Card (employer sponsored), is there a minimum period that one needs to work with the sponsoring employer before switching? Asking from a legal/USICS’s point of view, not ethically.
Hi Folks - I wanted to understand..how is H1B 6 years duration counted? Is it strictly by the dates on the petition? In my petitions for example, first one was valid starting Oct 2017 and then I got an extension in 2020 till Feb 2023.. so that just equates to about 5 years and 4 months. So is my H1B only till Feb 2023 or it can extended to allow for the remaining period?
Starting my own practice doing federal agency work. Think SEC, FINRA immigration etc. What do you do about the practice of law issue if Hearing is in Texas but you're barred in NY. I know plenty of lawyers who do it just wondering how.

Anyone know how the global Visa pitch is going?
Anyone keeping up with the immigration developments via the reconciliation bill? Seems hopeful. Thoughts?
Recently hired SA here, got my H1-B this year. When does PwC typically file for a Green Card? Also, is there any way the process can be expedited (e.g.: a reason such as wife needs EAD) ? Thanks
I feel like I’m not learning anything at my internship. It’s easy work and good pay though. Should I try to take on another project or multiple to try to gain more experience? But I was told it’ll be much harder and I would be expected to work longer hours and managers will be rough on me. Is this worth it when I go to school full-time as well while trying to balance a part time job? (The internship at D is expected to be part time but they might make me work more).
My roommate is denying to pay his share of rent he supposed to pay also which he has been paying till Dec 2020. This is not due to COVID but we had an argument using common places in Jan 21,until then he was paying his share of rent $1100 which he agreed to pay for the master bedroom which is quite large that he is occupying, after the brawl he is saying he can pay only equal share of the rent $1950/2 =$975, he also wants the extra money back that he claims that he extra paid. How do i solve ?
