Desi Consulting fam, 2 H1B related questions, would really appreciate any help. Please see the second comment below:
First posted this in the H1B bowl, but apparently there are fewer attorneys on there than I hoped. My client is filing a new petition to change employers, and his H-4 family members are stuck abroad because of COVID travel restrictions. Their H-4s don’t expire until 2021. If changing employers invalidates his current visa, can his family still get back into the US on their H-4s? Or do we have to wait for the consulates to open up to file for their extensions before they travel?
I am an in-house attorney and I have been following these bowls for at least a year. I am looking to connect with an attorney doing business or family immigration for the purpose of learning and doing overflow work when needed.

Can H1B approved under consular processing but yet to be activated be transferred to another employer and can the new employer apply for transfer and change of status?
Once I get my H1B issued, how soon can I apply for a greencard and how long does the process take from application to receipt of the greencard? For reference, I’m born Canadian (I think birth country plays a factor in this?) and is it better to apply through my employer or apply on my own?
BIA Briefs: I’m an associate at an immigration law firm. I determined that immigration isn’t for me So I gave the managing partner my 2 weeks. He wants me to wrap up some BIA briefs before I leave however I’m reviewing the record for a lot these and I’m seeing that a lot of the arguments for Asylum, Withhold, and CAT are incomplete. How I’m going to argue that the IC abused its discretion or misapplied the law when we made a facially insufficient argument for relief?
United Platinum here - got an offer to pay ~$6k for upgrade to 1K. Thoughts on if it’s worth it? Already belong to Club (United Infinite) and have CLEAR credit through Amex Platinum. Still have 40 plus points from hitting Platinum last year. Unlikely to travel for business until late 2Q at earliest but have 2-3 transcontinental flights planned for summer and 1 transatlantic for fall. Maybe another 1-2 shorter trips this year as well. I imagine I’d use my extra plus points on all these.
