Do we need to file for a new H1B amendment or LCA if I am going to be starting on a new client? Given that we are all WFH and there’s no need to be at the client site anymore ?
H1b extension - where does USCIS send the receipt? Does it go to your lawyers address? Or do you get it directly?
What are some scenarios that would cause the USCIS to deny someone’s H1B after being selected in the lottery?
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?
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.

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 keeping up with the immigration developments via the reconciliation bill? Seems hopeful. Thoughts?
Are you aware of anyone successfully scheduling a L1A visa appointment out of Canada or India? I am hearing that embassy in both countries is accepting emergency requests only and also aware of the presidential proclamation until 31st March. TIA!
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.
Hi Folks - I wanted to understand..how is H1B 6 years duration counted? Is it strictly by the dates on the petition? In my petitions for example, first one was valid starting Oct 2017 and then I got an extension in 2020 till Feb 2023.. so that just equates to about 5 years and 4 months. So is my H1B only till Feb 2023 or it can extended to allow for the remaining period?
Spent a year in banking at an EB but had to go back to school because of H1B visa issues. About to start as a BA at McK in the fall. Any thoughts on my ability to recruit for summer 2022 PE Assoc roles? Or do I have to spend minimum 2 years in consulting before making the switch?
Anyone successfully negotiate their vacation time? I have never had more than 3 weeks off and well past 10 YOE...

Why do people want to work for UMM/MF? I feel likes it’s a rat race follow the heard mentality with little long term upside (you get paid a bunch for two years but then what?). I’m really keen to go the MM but feel like I’m making a mistake the way my friends talk about it…. In my mind a small younger growing fund is such a better opportunity — more learning, exposure, promotional potentially, and, hopefully, culture. What am I missing?

Project leadership is telling teams that they need to fly in the week of thanksgiving and possible Christmas as well. The assumption is that we fly home the day prior to the actual holiday. 😂
