I am still at the job posting stage and my visa is expiring on March 2021. I’ve been following-up with the lawyer and they don’t seem pressured with the timing. I just feel that I am in a tight situation considering new visa regulations from Trump’s administration & wondering if I am overreacting. If anybody is on the same boat, do you think that I should be worried & should continue to follow up frequently with the lawyer?

OP can you extend beyond March 2021? Because that may be the case they are not stressing out. How is your Firm dealing with NOF posting during office closure?

Also, definitely follow up with your lawyers regularly, but at job posting stage there isn't much you can do to accelerate the timelines. The role has to be up for 30 days, followed by a cooloff period of 30 days. You can try to push them to prioritize building your ETA 9089 after those 60 days and not waste precious time, but that's about it.

Which firm? I

It is Fragomen who is working on our firm’s visa procressing.

@KPMG1 they told me that DOL allowed job posting outside office even if it is close.

Thank you @kpmg1! I should be able get the i-140 before my visa expires

Was talking to this girl ( arranged marriage ) over the past couple of months(jun-sep) and things were progressing towards in the correct direction. During our inital conversion in the early stages, I had mentioned everything about my status (h1b. with early stages of perm,i-140 stage) and told her how she won't be able to get EAD immediately after coming the US) All of sudden she said(oct) she now does not want to come to the US as my status does not allow her to work immediately in the US.

Can I transfer my H1B (got an offer) when my extension is in progress with my current employer?

I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
