Stupid. Filed in premium, got it approved, no RFE. I feared the same but there’s no real proof of that statement, and premium gave me life thanks to how fast it all happened

I dont think it is a factor for RFEs. Got my h1b extension approval in under 2 weeks in PP and can finally breathe..

BIA Briefs: I’m an associate at an immigration law firm. I determined that immigration isn’t for me So I gave the managing partner my 2 weeks.

How I’m going to argue that the IC abused its discretion or misapplied the law when we made a facially insufficient argument for relief?

Hi, I’ve completed 3 years as H1B and just received extension for the next 3 years. My employer will file prevailing wage with the DOL in the next 3 months in EB3. I have heard that some FAANG companies start filing GC within 3 months of joining. I’m already studying to switch jobs. How much time do I have to switch jobs so that there is adequate time left for GC application?

Picking a country to live and work in: my spouse is a Mexican citizen (with US green card) who works in Mexico City, and I'm a US citizen. We want to live together, but my spouse has great career opportunities in tech in MC, and finding a job in the US has been hard. I could likely get a job in MC, but I don't speak Spanish and my income would be much lower. How should we handle the decision of who moves where? We are both looking for tech jobs in the bay area, but we haven't had much success.
