Have my biometrics appointment this coming Friday. Received the appointment letter 3 weeks back for me only and spouse did not get the letter. Should my spouse accompany me to the appointment or just me? Anyone else been in this situation? Can really use the advice.

Spouse does not need to go. Should not either since they will not be allowed into the building without an appointment.

Spouse needs to wait for their own appointment notice.

Yes I have clients in this situation. Biometrics scheduled is screwed up because largely due to cancellations/delays caused by the pandemic last year. Your spouse will be scheduled for sure, eventually.

USCIS has told me the same thing only to eventually schedule them for biometrics.

However, it may be true that they do have biometrics on file. It just depends on whether your spouse ever had to do biometrics with USCIS in the past. Not all cases require biometrics. Fingerprints capture by a U.S. consulate do not count either.

Did Deloitte stop the PERM process I have 2 years left on my H1B. My GC process was initiated early 2019. Still perm has not been filed. Law firm says they cannot provide update and keeps changing the timeline of perm filing. They said they will file in end of February, then said mid March and now they’re saying end of April. Should I accept offer from other firm who will start in the next 6 months? Appreciate the advice


Hey y'all! For those of you who didn't win H1B and relocated for a year or two, how did you manage your personal finances? Did you keep money in your US bank accounts or withdrew all of it? And what about 401K and other stock portfolios? Thanks!

Hi fishers,

My spouse is currently on H4 visa which is due to expire in 7 months.

I was planning to ask my employer if they can start filing for H4 visa renewal. However, she is also eligible to file for EB2 NIW visa as she has worked as a research analyst in a non profit organization earlier during her 6 year H1B visa.

Could you please advise if both EB2-NIW filing can be applied when H4 visa renewal is already being processed or vice versa?


My extension process just got started are they changing sal based on new norms?
