Regarding 180 day rule after I140 approved - what happens if one has to put in 2 weeks notice just prior to 180 days period i.e. last 2 weeks prior to 180 days completion.

Your last day should be 180th day or more. Plan accordingly if that is what you want

This can’t be more wrong. You can leave anytime after it’s approved if the employer does not withdraw the application. If your last day is close to 180 day, there’s no reason not to believe the employer will just leave it be as long as the employment ends in good terms. Take some calculated risk if you must. I did and my old employer was happy to leave my application be. Of course if your employer is notorious in withdrawing the application no matter what, then you need to be careful.

I’ve worked in the agency side for 3 years now, starting as an associate to being a manager for paid social. After much reflection, I no longer feel the fire of wanting to continue in the agency side and started applying for jobs to move toward client side. So far I haven’t had any hints nor any leads to get into the door. The most lead I get are for agency calls, which I continue to decline. I haven’t had any luck on LinkedIn as well. How do I make the transition out of agency into client side?

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?


Got my I140 in November 2021. Started looking for a job thinking that it’s going to take a while, but landed a decent offer pretty quickly that I am seriously considering. What are my options, considering I do not have the physical copy of my I140 yet, and the firm won’t hand it over until 6 months have passed at the very least. Waiting another 2months seems brutal


Guys random question - I can’t find my I-797 approval and need it urgently. Would our firm lawyer have a copy of it? When did we receive it? Has anyone tried to get a duplicate? I’m so lost

I know some of my friends are doing EB3 visa (unskilled workers) and they already got GC after 1.5 years. I was really surprise that it takes unskilled workers route much shorter time. So what is preventing ppl from biting the bullet for a year working on farms or fast food chains and gets GC quickly? I’m genuinely curious.


Does a new US visa override a previous one? I had B1/B2 earlier and then got an F1. Now I’m outside of the country. Can I still use the previous B1 visa to visit? The visa is valid on the passport

If my F1 application goes from administrative processing to application received, does that mean the administrative processing process is complete and now it is regular processing at the consulate?

Just changed job and currently in my 3rd year of H1B. When is the latest I can start the whole employment based green card process? Ideally sooner the better, but I am curious if it is okay to begin the process in year 5 of my H1B for example. FYI I am not from China or India in case that affects the timeline. Thank you.


If I have one company sponsoring my Green Card application, what happens if I switch jobs going to another company (that also sponsors international workers)?

Can the process be transferred to this other company or do I have to start a new application process?
And even if the application can be transferred, is there any prejudice to process?


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

Do we need to file for a new H1B amendment or LCA if I am going to be starting on a new client? Given that we are all WFH and there’s no need to be at the client site anymore ?
