I have 2 years currently remaining on my H1B and don’t have I140 yet. Am planning to start applying to places, but I see a lot of posts about how companies are saying no to folks who have contd..
How’s PwC immigration team in terms of new h1 transfer? I have got an offer with PwC but recruiter said that it would 6-8 months in the current trend to get it approved?! Is that lil exaggerated?
Is it ethical to say NO to the company which I already accepted the offer and they already started immigration process. P.S. I got a better offer than other company which has more RSU'S AND better base pay.
Hi all, my H1 visa was stuck at transferred to a different office for two month. However, it miraculously turned 180 the past two days and got approved, yes, within 2 days. I was really anxious before this so I just wanted to share it with other ppl who are still waiting for your approval. It will happen soon. Hang in there.
Peeps I have H1b till Sep 2021 but my passport expired in Sep 2020 and along with it my I94. I had already renewed my passport back in Feb but haven’t left the country since. I read online that my presence in the USA is unlawful and staying here unlawfully for more than 180 would bar me from entering US for 3 years. What are my options ?
After receiving Green Card (employer sponsored), is there a minimum period that one needs to work with the sponsoring employer before switching? Asking from a legal/USICS’s point of view, not ethically.
Hey folks. Any suggestions for an immigration lawyer in Chicago. Wish to do a consultation about the different possibilities on my visa status.

Does anyone have insight into why some consulting firms have better h1b approval than others? Post-mba consultant at D and I’m seeing friends at other firms with much better approval rates after graduation from mba but I imagine we do very similar types of work
Qq - I recently noticed that I am missing an old (not current) i-797 approval notice. I have the scanned (soft) copy but not the original notice. Do we need older notices for any future filings (e.g. green card, AOS filing, naturalization etc.)? Wondering if I should order a copy or not needed.
Anyone here who started their consulting careers later in life? Always seeing posts about how young people make it to P... wondering about the other stories. I started as a C at 29 (yes, unfortunately, I fall into the bucket of exp hire hired at a lower level...), made M at 33. Doing well but also feeling like I’m already too old to aim to be a P. Hoping for some perspectives.
Do I need to wait for my L1 blanket petition to get approved (1-3 weeks) before I book a visa appointment or is visa appointment part of the approval process? TIA!
Canadian working in the US on an L1 visa. Thinking about exiting...debating whether to come back to Canada or look in the US. But, I’ll need to get a visa again... are TNs still granted for managers etc? In consulting or in tech?
Anyone got a stamp with old employer when you have a H1B transfer approved? I got my extension approval last year but haven't had a chance to get a stamp and looks like I can only get stamp under EO
If you go from h1b to h4, but still have time left on your original h1b visa, can you switch back to h1b easily?
Curious if there’s any international students/professionals on here who has tried to go the entrepreneurial route? How did you manage immigration issues and investors’ adversity against legal risks? Would appreciate chat in the DM as well if people don’t feel comfortable talking about their legal status here. Thank you for your help!
Got selected for H1B but already accepted offer at another company for 2x pay. Is staying at the company and getting the visa worth it? What are the risks for immediate transfer if the other company is willing to wait? Current visa expires in 2 years.
Got approval to hire a new admin/paralegal for my transactional group. Firm isn’t doing a great job advertising the post and I think the best pitch we have is “Give us two years making around $40k before law school, work here during law school, and you’ll have a job paying $190k already set up for when you graduate.” Any suggestions how to find this person? I’m in DC.
Not proud of it, but I was hooking up with a co-worker/friend pre-COVID. I left the state when wfh started and we still talk every day, but nothing romantic. He made it clear at the beginning that he didn’t want to date because we’re co-workers. Stung a bit when I went on a dating app this morning and saw his profile. The rational part of me knows we’re only ever going to be buddies and that if he actually wanted me, then he’d make something happen. Looking for advice on how to get over this.
