I am H1B and I’ve started my GC process. my husband is also on H1B but won’t get his GC sponsored until his next job. What happens if he has started the GC process but by then his H1B had run out? Can he still work while it’s pending with an application for EAD? Can he work as H4 under my H1B till I get my GC issued?
There’s a company that I really want to work for in the future, is it possible to convince them I apply for my green card now and then join them once the EAD card comes in post-GC approval?
While switching companies, can we get the H1B visa transfer approved and still work for the old company for 2 months?
In case H1B gets denied (I hope that doesn’t happen), what countries have you considered moving to besides Canada. Indian national and pending transfer to MBB if that helps.
Any recent H1B transfers to EY? I want to know the timeline, overall experience and outcomes.
Guys, just got the notification my I-140 has been approved. How much longer to expect the AOS application and receiving the GC? Applied on L1-A visa.
Desi fam, did any of you take 24 karat gold coins to India from US? Like 1/2 oz or 1/4 oz. Did you have to pay taxes at immigration in India ? How much if yes ?
H1b extension was filed 2 weeks back and now I see this when I check the status. What’s next?
Hi folks, I was on H1B visa and moved out of US 2 years back. I should have 3 years left on my H1B visa. I am planning to go back to the US now. Do I need to apply for H1B lottery? Or can I reuse my previous H1B. FYI - I work for a different employer now.
Quick question. If you have an approved I-140, and want to switch jobs, does the new employer need to restart the green card application for you? How does this work? Thank you!
Maybe this was asked here before, but what happens to your h1b visa if you can’t find another job that would transfer your visa after the 60 days grace period? You will need to leave the country, but
Polling time: Has anyone recently got Administrative Processsing when trying to renew your H1B visa? If so, how long did it take to get it cleared? Try to assess if it is worth the risk to renew.
Sharing positive updates. Hope this can be motivational for others who are in the situation or planning for a move. H1B Transfer approved in 2wks. Normal processing, not premium Vermont serv center.
My current opt expires on 07/02, my h1B petition was filed on 06/16. My firm wants receipt notice for I-9 verification or I-20 and DSO won’t be able generate new I-20 without receipt notice. If I can’t submit one of these before 07/02 they are stating that I need to separate from firm. Can someone advise me what I can do?
Friend received I797B instead of I797A for his H1B approval. The immigration lawyer is recommending him to leave US and get his visa stamped. Any option for addressing this from within US?

This is a long shot but wondering if anyone has experienced this. I just changed to H1B status last Oct and my bank mailed me recently after tax filing deadline (I have filed tax in time using H&R block) asking me to fill out W9 if I am a resident alien / another form if I am not. This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?
For those, who are immigrants, what made you stay in New York? Would be especially interested to hear from those who didn’t come for economical reasons. I am told the excitement about the city wears off 😅 I am European, just came 2 years ago and am still loving it, but also start to wonder if staying in a job I don’t like it’s all worth it (I am on L1 visa, so no way to find a new job). Life in Europe isn’t too bad either.
Hello fishes, Do we need to update our address on H-1B approved petition and PERM (still in initial PWD stages) if changing our resedential address within a 5 mile radius? Would be great if any immigration lawyers could weigh in.
Has anyone gone from Big 4 to a small no name accounting firm? Are you happy you made the move? Are the decreased hours worth the drop off in resources, client prestige, and technology?

Hello! I have a two part question: 1) is it worth it to obtain an SHRM specialty credential if I don’t have the broader SHRM certification? 2) has anyone gotten the People Analytics or Talent Acquistion credential? If so, how valuable was it from a learning perspective? Do you feel it significantly contributed to your knowledge in either area? Thank you!

Hi Eric, thanks so much for taking the time to do this! I used to be a manager at MBB, recently went to industry and don’t like it. How difficult is it in your view to boomerang back to consulting?
Is anyone interested in investing in a commercial asset that returns average CoC of 10%, 8% pref and an IRR of 15%+. Total return of 100%+ typically 5 year hold. I’m looking to help raise some capital from sophisticated investors over the next few months but not sure if people in consulting are interested in this. Most of my investors are friends or acquaintances as of now.

L1B to L1A then EBC1 - possible? I’m currently on a L1B at Accenture, based in US which will expire soon and getting extended. Accenture hasn’t been super helpful with my immigration inquires. I’m up for manager and debating if I should do the L1B to L1A transfer or just wait it out until my L1B expires. Do I not qualify for EBC1 since I got my L1A in the country and not prior to transferring with that 1 year managerial experience abroad?
