    H1B Amendment+Extension with new End Client

    Your employer needs to show there is bona fide job available until full validity of H-1B extension period. Based on what you wrote I believe USCIS might approve H1B duration until Jan 30th 2020 & of course new amendment plus extension has to filed immediately. I strongly recommend upgrade to...

    Can I change my employer when my I-140 and H-1B is approved when I am in India?

    Employer B can file H-1B petition new employment & request for consular processing not subject to quota based on employer A's approved I-140. I believe it should be fine even if employer A withdraws approved I-140 since 180 days has passed after its approval.

    I-485 Cross Chargeability Spouse not present

    Your only hope is some positive I-485 interview outcome or try her luck for B1/B2 using these circumstances as her defense i.e. she has to leave country to avoid kid being harmed & be separated from spouse (you) etc. Again this is pure luck.

    Options for spouse upon death of applicant after EB-2 application and I-140 approval

    Unfortunately 204 (I) gives relief to I-140 approval situation & it is silent regarding H1B's principal applicant's death. I-140 & 485 filing is totally different from H1B/H4 statuses. Unfortunately upon principal's H-1B's death, spouse has to move to other status or leave country.

    I-485 Cross Chargeability Spouse not present

    Do you think your wife can approach for B1/B2 interview in Nepal US consulate & state all facts see if they would grant her visa. May be on humanitarian ground they might consider granting visa since family is separated & she was not allowed to board flight at no fault of hers.

    I-485 Cross Chargeability Spouse not present

    Looks like Airlines messed up. I don't think they should have stopped your wife from boarding flight since she had valid AP at time of travel back to US & might be landing onto any US port within 12-24 hrs. Have her walk down to nearest US Consulate or Embassy and explain the maybe they might...
