Hi, did any of you receive H1B receipt notice after filing..please let us know asap.

Been at my firm for 2.5 years, right out of law school. Worked in my practice area as a clerk for 3 years in law school. New Associate comes in right around my 1.5 year mark, they are 5 years out of school but have no experience in the practice area. They fail to meet billable hours each month. Never go above and beyond. Call out all the time. Can’t be trusted with large/important assignments. Am I right to be annoyed that there is only a 5k difference in salary between us? (I make more).

Hi - looking for direction: I’m about to file my citizenship application without a lawyer (after 5yrs of permanent residency). I filled out the N-400 form myself. At the end of the form it’s asking to upload any documents/evidence. How important is it uploading documents and what exactly is preferable to upload? (ex: foreign passport pgs, univ degree, employment verification?). It didn’t specifically require to upload copies. Would my case be denied if I don’t upload anything? Thx in advance
