Can I switch my F1 visa with an ended OPT to a B2 to stay in the states for 2-3 extra months before my relocation starts? Currently on the 60 days grace period post OPT end date. Do I have to leave the country to switch to B2? Or can I just stay and apply to change of status?
Applied for a Green card via my L1A and have just received notice that biometrics have been received anyone share the process beyond this?
My husband just got fired from his job. We are immigrants. The economic conditions due to the pandemic, combined with the immigration issues (exacerbated by the recent executive order) make getting a new job an uphill battle. I’m anxious and stressed, but need to double down in my own job + not show my anxiety to friends (since my husband doesn’t want people to know that he lost his job). How do I manage this? I could never imagine us being in this situation...but these are exceptional times.
Best immigration attorneys, esp to have questions around green card process answered, in Chicago?
How simple is it to dispute a charge you willfully made with your credit card company? I bought a plane ticket and tried to cancel within 24 hrs only for them to try and charge me a bunch of crazy fees equal to the cost of the ticket.
My h1b visa is valid till 2020. If I visit Canada for a weekend, do I need to do any visa stamping or anything else to enable me get back in U.S? Or I simply leave and come back with my visa & passprt
Hi all...just got request for evidence today...is it better to wait it out or try day-1 cpt on the side?? Will this impact the ongoing h1b filing? Anyone going through the same situation?

Did I see that there’s a CSR (not preferred) deal with 100k points being offered right now? I see the preferred with 100k but I feel like I saw something about the CSR with 100k and would like to find out if that’s true/how to access the deal
My husband recently moved to US on an H4 dependent visa. My green card application and then his EAD would take at least 2-3 years.
He is a big data developer with 3 years of work exp, has done his masters from US university. His OPT period is already expired.
Can anybody suggest a way to get a job and get the employer to apply for h1b in this March/April 2021 cycle?
So first if there is a dress code you don’t get to just break it because you want to so completely fair they kicked him out. Second, why is it that immigrants come here and then fly their native flag. If your so proud of where your from then move back. Your in the US and guess which country you lived in and provided you this education.. The US. Regardless of legal status, if you want to be here and come here then fly the US flag. Never understood this at protests on immigration either smh.

My h1b expires in Sep and the attorney has filed for H1b extension in regular processing. Wanted to see how much time it takes to get a decision from USCIS?

Ever have a department manager tell the entire department that she has a stack of resumes on her desk of people who would die to work at this agency, so we should be grateful we're here? Ah, memories.
Disregarding COVID but let’s say I saved up for a down payment in a taxable brokerage. I finally have just enough in my taxable brokerage to pay for the down payment but it’s been yielding good returns and I don’t want to sell it all. What should I do?
