So, if your previous passport was issued in the US, you can’t renew it under Tatkal in India because they ‘don’t have the data’. I can’t understand how they don’t have a centralized database for this

Haha wtf. That’s ridiculous.
But. It’s India


Complete BS. with all the modernization in the passport issuance process such archaic bugs shouldn’t exist

I’m almost a second year attorney in family law. I have made brief appearances in hearings, but nothing really major. I am an outgoing person and have no problem working out issues and speaking to the partner and senior associates. However, I have so much anxiety about court, particularly long arguments. I am extremely nervous and feel like I’m going to freeze. I do believe I’m capable, but I feel like I have a long way to go. Any tips? I’m doing great in all other areas more or less.

I am currently unemployed (but looking) an opportunity to consult has potentially fallen into my lap. Before I shut it down for a lack of experience, I want to know if it's something that I can even do. It's a very very small company, not even 3 FTE. But they are looking for someone to come in, create a Handbook(I can do that), provide benefits, etc.

Is that difficult to implement? I can't imagine it being so, but I don't want to set myself up to fail.

A friend is looking to hire a director full time in LA in-house for a fitness brand, doing videos very similar to those for the classes that are on Peloton. Directing the class instructors, etc. Doesn’t sound like it includes directing ads for the brand, just the class workout videos. Any leads greatly appreciated.

She is a MD and would sponsor me, and my H1B is valid until Sep 2022, would I be cutting it too close assuming it takes 13-15 months, what would happen if I go past September and the GC arrives a few months later? Any help appreciated.

Canada PR vs USA H1B visa. I am on H1B in USA with a good job and I have a Canada PR which I thought of using to get more stability in life but as I am running out of time on Canada PR it’s making me anxious if I should stay in the USA or move to Canada. Can someone share their experience if faced the similar issue?


Has anyone had a experience where the H1B application processing time went beyond the 15 day period (in case of premium processing) and USCIS return the extra premium processing fee? Just asking to understand if it’s fair to assume I will get an adjudication in 15days after lawyers filed with USCIS

At this point, does my new I-140 priority date remain intact from first approved I-140?



Regarding 180 day rule after I140 approved - what happens if one has to put in 2 weeks notice just prior to 180 days period i.e. last 2 weeks prior to 180 days completion.


It has been over 60 days since the last employment ended. How tricky with the h1b transfer process be with the new employer? Will I have to leave the country for stamping?


Nothing will change for h1b and legal immigrants no matter who is in the office. STOP asking these questions and speculating.

Any one at Amazon who currently travelled outside US for personal reasons and had to get an H1-B stamp? What was the guidance from lawyers and how did you navigate the process with HR?
