H1B

How transparent is your firm about your H1B application? Do you get your application receipt number? I’ve worked really hard to get this job and made a lot of life changing decisions and worried about losing all this just because my application isn’t picked in lottery🥺🙁.

From above posts it appears you are trying for your first H1b through lottery ? I believe most immigration team doesn’t share anything unless you are picked in lottery. With regard to visa transfer and extension, you get a receipt notice once immigration team submits the documents & is received by USCIS. Then approval notice once it is approved.

Pretty transparent, you get everything. It’s pretty dependent on which law firm you work with. I highly doubt black stone would suck at this

OP - What’s not transparent? They are telling you that they’ll file for your H-1B. They are getting all the documents from you. They are preparing and filing your petition. What else are you looking for specifically?

Did you try calling them and asking?

Oh, if it isn't picked yet then there is literally nothing they can share with you.. once it is picked they will share the receipt note so you can track the approvals

Many of us are facing unprecedented events, either job loss, EO impact or job market uncertainty with H1B, and experiencing mental and physical stress! Let's try and be compassionate to our fellow H1Bs! Times are difficult but we have the immigrant endurance and persistence. Whichever path our lives take, we will survive and thrive! Special shout out to folks who take time to update such as EO reform implications! Chin up! Let's not let our disappointment with the system impact our mental health
