And here my LCA is still case received since mid Feb 😔

I don’t think you can cancel it but who cares now

Congrats to both of you. Did u see the approval notice - electronic copy ? I know the hard copy takes at least 1-2 weeks. How long did u get it for ?

Same, I checked the USCIS website, following up with the attorney today to get the approval notice.

what was the RFE for?

Your lawyer will let you know how

When did you initially file your case for extension?

In Feb

Which service center?

Vermont I think

USCIS updated that they sent rfe for h1b ext on March 5th. My lawyers are saying they are still working on it and I haven’t heard anything yet. My h1B first term expires in July. Panic mode on. Please tell me something good :)

@PWC1 - 240 days - period of authorized stay is applicable any time your petition is in pending status irrespective of whether ur i94 is expired or not. The difference is u cannot stay if in case ur extension/transfer gets denied ( if i94 already expired and leave in 10-15 days) vs u can stay for 60 days or until the validity of i94 whichever is earlier.

I'm on a H1B so I am supposed to pay Medicare and SS taxes, but my employer has not withheld anything- my hnr block advisor caught that but she just completed my returns assuming I don't have to pay those taxes

What is the right protocol in this case? Do I owe SS and fica taxes?

Just heard that my district will have classroom and live-recording learning. I’m thankful because I now can feed my family, my newborn and a recent-sponsored wife! I’m scared because I’m almost 50 and I’m afraid I might catch the virus and die leaving behind my 1 month baby and a wife who is not legal in the state yet! The USCIS or Trump’s dept. thinks she’s not good enough to be in the US!! We applied for green card and SS card since August 2019!

Company wants me to travel to Austria for training/meetings/etc. I'm a US permanent resident. I applied for a Schengen business visa thru VFS in Miami. It's been pending with the Austrian consulate in DC for almost 2 months now because they said they need confirmation from the AMS in Austria if I need a work permit/work visa to be there. Both myself & the CEO of my company have tried contacting the AMS there multiple times with no response. Sort of stuck in limbo. Any advice?
