My husband and I are both international. I got the H1B lottery and he didn’t. After three years unemployment, he decided to go back to the home country with our son. I don’t think I have many options😢

Start GC asap and get your Perm and I140 in premium. If all goes well, you should be able to bring him back in a year and he should be eligible to work (unless they change the H4 EAD rule).

Family is more important than a job. You can replace your job but not your family.

Even after H1 lottery, GC is so messed up and extensions are becoming another challenge. We all need better luck

This is truly unfortunate, op and d1. The system is so broken that luck and timing have more to do with it than merit.

OP - If GC is the priority then start the process and have your I140 approved. Stay in the US until then.

Don’t know how other people handle this if in a similar situation

Honestly that’s what my wife and I talked about too before the lottery (she has 3 shots while I had only 1 chance). And in my mind, it’s more important for the family to be together, no matter or back home

I am also in similar boat.

P1, what’s your plan?

I know family is important. But my husband wanted me to start the GC card process so he can return to the US to work at some point. Really don’t know how long it will take

I expect some laws to change in near future. Get I140 and wait a year or two. Take a call in 2 years.

I am in a similar situation OP
In my case , husband got h1b and I haven’t heard back yet ( after 2 attempts)
I might move to another country for a year while husband stays in the US and maybe eventually I move back to us or he joins me in another country

Sorry to hear that, SC1, do you guys have kid? If not, it might be a bit flexible .

Insane, leaving in this country is so important ? Clearly family is the last priority. Sorry for being harsh but it’s a foolish decision to stay apart

I often meet Indian/Bangladeshi and other immigrant cab drivers when I take a cab. Makes me wonder how they make it till here when the immigration process is so difficult even for highly skilled people. Do they have family that sponsored them? They don't look privileged enough to have rich families spending so much for an outcome that may take years. Are they illegal? I don't imagine they'd be able get a driving licence and survive for long. I'm just baffled by the sheer number of cab drivers who can't speak fluent English, but seem to have cracked the immigration hurdles we are not able to.

Anyone else get frustrated when a manager ‘thinks’ they’re being helpful by actively telling you that a lot of the stuff you do to help manage your ADHD is unnecessary and there’s a better way to do it? Like they mean well, but even when I try to tell them I do it for a reason they think I’m just being difficult - e.g. work in a team room with headphones on, have a physical to do list, have a bunch of tabs/docs open at one time, bring a second monitor, take regular short breaks etc.
