Please help. Husband was in Canada (and still is) at the time his H1B was approved, so he received I797B instead of the usual I797A approval. Since I797B comes without I-94 attached at the bottom, his H1B status becomes valid only after he gets his visa stamped from home country and enters the US on H1B. Due to COVID, we don’t intend to make a trip to India anytime soon. Will his employer be able to start the PERM/I-140 process without him having H1B status and while he’s still working in Canada?

Hot take: $1M net worth is very attainable by all the consultants on this app. Consulting is in the top 5-10% (or better) paying jobs in the US. $1M net worth would put you in the top 6-8% as a 35-45 year old in the US. While everyone starts at different points (i.e student debt) and has different life circumstances resulting in different timelines, consulting provides solid income to allow you to save, invest and build wealth, if you choose.
