1) you can join the new firm but it comes with risk 2) no you won't get 3 years of visa extension on joining the new firm as you have already completed your 6years. Future extensions are tied to your approved i140 3) if your current employer revokes your i140 then you won't have enough time on your hand to get a new I140 with the new firm so you'll be out of status. This is the risk I mentioned in #1 Ignore the FAANG offer, and get your I140 secured. I would choose immigration over a a FAANG job

That's a tricky situation. Once you get the extension you should be good as long as I140 isn't revoked. Please confirm with a professional imm lawyer

I joined FAANG based on an approved i140 from a Big4 company. My 6 years was almost up but 180 days wasn’t done. The big4 company wasn’t going to revoke the i140 so I made the jump and got a 3 year extension.

I would definitely speak to an immigration attorney to check on that situation. It's a little complicated and there might be a detail you are missing.

During the difficult time, be mindful while going out for protest. Being an immigrant, it’s a high risk for your visa renewal. There is ongoing police activity and probability of getting your name in police record, which will impact your visa renewal. Be careful and stay safe and don’t do anything which is unlawful in a foreign country (not that you do unlawful in your home country).

Please help. Husband was in Canada (and still is) at the time his H1B was approved, so he received I797B instead of the usual I797A approval. Since I797B comes without I-94 attached at the bottom, his H1B status becomes valid only after he gets his visa stamped from home country and enters the US on H1B. Due to COVID, we don’t intend to make a trip to India anytime soon. Will his employer be able to start the PERM/I-140 process without him having H1B status and while he’s still working in Canada?

Interested in your opinions. Last year I took a government job. Before I was working as an independent consultant and netting more - obviously without pension and benefits though. (Lost work due to pandemic.) With extra medical expenses this year (outside of government insurance) I realize I’m simply not making enough money to do what I want and need to to (medical + travel + investing). Everyone tells me to stay for security and WLB.

When I see people here talk about making way way more for less experience, I wonder if I’m being underpaid. And how would I start a negotiation for a raise or look for other opportunities??
