My lawyers filed my h1b extension and amendment together even after advising not to by the v and I advisor. I’m getting freaked out. Any suggestions ?

What’s the problem? Mine done in the same way and get approved.

It happened for me 2 years ago and happening right now. Why would that be an issue?

H1b amendment is for the LCA and they always get denied. Doesn’t that mean, extension gets denied along with it ?

Why would they always get denied

Which service you are in? What is the reason for denial?

They should be filed together or else you will be double paying. Also, when you file it together, it’s not an extension AND and amendment. It’s just an extension with a new location added. Your chances of an RFE or denial does not increase if these are done together, that purely dependents on your case.

What are your thoughts on this diversity visa debate? I always thought it to be an unfair program, strongly anchored on the lottery of birth. Selfishly, I hope it ends and instead the visa numbers are used for retrogressed countries stuck in the EB saga. At least the employment based route is a hard won merit based path.

Thanks!

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).
