My new employer is getting ready to file my petition. I’m getting ready to get married before my tentative start date, and my SO is an American citizen. If I leave my current job before they file my transfer petition, would I be at any risk?

Well you’d technically still be on H1B so still subject to 60 days grace period before you’re out of status. As long as the new employer files within that time, you should be fine. Your GC through marriage might still be several months away.

Ohh I see. Gotcha! Thank you both!!!

Can someone help me? [CANADA]

I got an offer for Deloitte as a new consultant.
I applied for EY and PwC for business transformation and management consulting respectively.

My offer for Deloitte expires soon. I emailed both firms on yesterday politely asking if there's an update.
The thing is I'm more attracted to PwC/EY lines i applied to.

Has anyone heard back from these firms? I don't want to burn any bridges w/ Deloitte by accepting and then decline if a better off comes along.

The sellers said we can use a drone but my inspector / none of the inspectors I’ve asked use a drone. Is there anything I can do here? The house is 3 stories.

Extension filled under premium processing. It's been a week now but the law firm is saying they haven't received the receipt number. How long does it take to get the receipt?


Is this true?

To have your presence in America be considered unlawful, you must remain out of status for 180 days. If you are able to get back into status, then there are no penalties.


Did anyone submit their H1B petition with premium processing this month? How long did it take for you to hear back / how long has it been since you receipt date?


USCIS is running out of money, shouldn’t they allow fast track gc. I am sure many people would agree to pay.


Anyone stamped their H-1 extension recently? How long does it the whole process take? Heard it’s taking more than a couple of weeks now to get your stamping/passport back.

Just heard my H1B petition was approved. Visa will be valid starting Oct 1, 2021. I am also scheduled to get promoted in October (unsure of which date exactly). Hypothetically, if I get promoted from Account Coordinator to Account Manager I on Oct 5, after my H1B kicks in on Oct 1, how would this work logistically? Planning on going back to home country and also getting the visa issuance in Dec. Similar experience, anyone? Appreciate your input.


What is the denial rate for L1b extension if filed in USCIS. I'm contemplating if i should just go home to my country of origin for the extension in US consulate abroad.

Any leads on non-consulting firms that hire for organizational change management or OD roles and offer H1 sponsorship (manager and above). I love what I do but the constant need to balance my 17 month old’s needs with priorities at work is taking a toll on my mental and physical. Not working is unfortunately not an option and I have not seen many companies that sponsor visas for non-STEM or non-consulting roles. Thanks in advance.


Is it okay to take couple days off when switching jobs on h1b? Planning to take ~7-10 days off before I join new firm. And also planning to go out of country during that time. Would that be an issue?

If I am at the biometrics step (appt. next week) for the GC. Does that mean someone has at least looked at my application and it went directly to the field office for processing ?


EY folks, a couple of questions about H1 extension filing. 1) Does EY law file extension under premium by default? 2) Can’t see my USCIS case no. on Zoom yet. When is that usually available to track?

Do you guys recommend looking/ changing jobs at this time being on H1B?


Anyone know all-in costs for Fragomen to process an EB2 or 3 for ROW filer? Got an offer includes GC Day 1 but the company has never done one, so I’d basically be leading the process with the lawyers. I got a referral to a smaller firm that quoted ~20k incl. gov’t fees. Interested in going with Fragomen given they did my H1B and started my GC with my current Firm.


Had a question- I pulled up my I-94 form and saw that my entry date was valid till 2020 which was my old petition. After that I had applied for extension and got an approval till December 2022. Never travel back to home county during this time. Should I get the I-94 updated with latest dates or is it fine. Please let me know.


Does the online USCIS status for the case changes prior to being notified of the decision, or afterwards?
