How will the new H1B bill affect consulting? Will everyone making less than 100,000 on H1B be fired if the bill passes?
Anyone done a H1B transfer lately? How long did it take for you? Please indicate if it was premium processing or not. TIA!
Here on H1B for a little above 2 years now. Can’t move due to regular processing. Don’t like my current job (continued)
On h1b grace period now, if I do manage to get a new job, how long will it take for employer to file h1 transfer? I know consultancies do it faster but spoke to cognizant today and they told 7 weeks!
Hello, My employer is planning to start PERM process for me ASAP. My firm has never done this before. They asked me to recommend some good immigration lawyers. Please suggest me some good lawyers y'all have used. Also, does it matter if my attorney is from a different city/state?
@H1B consultants - how painful is H1B amendment process these days for starting a new engagement? Have you noticed any repercussions for amendment denials or RFE?
If you’re on H1B, can you work outside the country for more than 30 days without any issues. Or do you need to file anything with USCIS given your work location has changed from your what’s on your H1B
Just heard my H1B petition was approved. Visa will be valid starting Oct 1, 2021. I am also scheduled to get promoted in October (unsure of which date exactly). Hypothetically, if I get promoted from Account Coordinator to Account Manager I on Oct 5, after my H1B kicks in on Oct 1, how would this work logistically? Planning on going back to home country and also getting the visa issuance in Dec. Similar experience, anyone? Appreciate your input.
HR1044 just passed Congress, potentially no more employment based visa caps for Indian if it passes the Senate
I am on h1b and need a stamp on my visa. My i94 has expired. Can I go to Mexico / Canada to stamp (I don't have a tourist visa of either of those countries) or is going to India the only option?
H1B people who got selected in this year lottery, have you submitted the application yet? Any RFE? approval? denial?
I’ve been on H1B October 2019, expiring in 2022. I’m kind of clueless as to what happens next. Does my firm start the green card process soon because it’s been almost 2 years (ive heard/read you need to work 2 years before they do that at big 4). What does that entail and how long until the green card comes out after that? And when they renew my H1B for another 3 years is that a guarantee extension and not a lottery like the first one?
EY folks on a h1b visa, if you are working remotely for a couple of months from a relatives place, have you informed EY law ? Was visiting my relatives in a different state and decided to stay here for a while. Thinking what issues might arise if I do this
When entering information to schedule a visa appointment is it required to use the old DS-160 number? My passport number changed and I need a new DS-160 but there isn’t an option to get the form
I applied for H1B in September but still haven’t received my EAD card. My 60 days are almost up. Is anyone in a similar situation or know how to handle it?
My lease is coming up and I’m on a temporary visa. Losing my job would mean I have to move back. Can I ask for a month to month lease? If I sign for a year and get fired I’m bankrupt...
My H1B got approved last October and I haven't gotten my visa stamped. The I797 says that it will be valid till Oct 2022. Now, i am planning to go for my masters now and probably will come out of school by May 2023. Will have to reenter the H1 lottery? Or can i use this approved petition to get a stamping then?

Been with my GF a little over 4 years but she cheated on my 3 months ago in a time when she says she was struggling (super bad anxiety, was feeling alone, had a pet die tragically and unexpectedly, and was feeling insecure). She has terrible anxiety and has suffered with depression. Thought I could get over what happened but I can’t. I want to break up but am genuinely scared of what will happen when I break with her (self harm or worse) due to her past struggles with depression. Cont.

Day 1 of a two week long vacation, wish me luck, as work has been my steady ritual of the mind to stay busy and ignore the isolation.
WFH = mid day gym game.
So much baggage brought into the relationship. 2 years in and just discovered a whole lot more. Its been mentally extremely difficult and it’s changed me as a person. Just venting but feel hopeless and I know my SO is suffering. Wish there was a solution but I’m losing hope
