    How to confirm EB preference and PD?

    I have two LCs, two I-140 approved. My I-485 application was twice returned when we filed as EB2 using the ealier LC (which is EB3) date, and only got accepted in June 07 when the EB2 PD became current. But when I first applied for EAD/AP, the only LUD was on the EB3 I-140. I called last year...

    Change to EAD or not?

    Frankly, after so many years in this waiting game, I do not think I would have any energy left in me to move to a new employer and start this process all over again, should my application get denied. So I do not care much about preserving my H status. I just want to stay/work legally till a...

    Change to EAD or not?

    Thanks for all the reponses. Per your understanding, jk0274, what should the time frame be between entering with AP and filing H-1B extension? I do not think there is a clear answer. For some, their H-1b needs to beextended after the trip anyway. For mine, I do not need to extend it till...

    Change to EAD or not?

    Here is my situation. Welcome your comments. Returned using AP in Nov 07. H-1B is good till 9/2009. My understanding of the Cronin memo is that I am still on H-1b till 2009. But I keep hearing different interpretations even by lawyers. I talked with two lawyers from the firm I retained...

    Class of Adhmission on I-131

    I used AP last year. So on the form, I should put PAROLED as class of admission. Am I right? Is this the same as last entry status? For H4, who has not gone our of the country since I-485 filing, it should still be H4. Please let me know if I am right. Also checks should be paid to...

    Renewal, paper or E filing?

    For paper filing of EAD/AP renewal, do we need to get figureprinted? Now I am comparing paper and E filings, I think paper filing is more convinient if you do not want to drive to the service center for photo etc. Am I correct? My question is if we need figureprinting for these...

    EAD renewal on own

    The only drawback Seems to me the only drawback of E-filing is one has to go to the service center for pictures etc. Am I right? Thanks.

    I am getting ready to renew my EAD. I entered US last year using AP. So on Form I-765, item 14, manner of last entry should be paroled. How about item 15, current immigration status? According to the Cronin memo, I am still on H-1B even after using AP for entry. What should I put on item...

    AC21, job duties

    Would you please clarify? Did your new employer repeat word by word of the part of duties petaining to your new duty, or the whole list that is on the LC application? In another word, if your duty on LC is A+B+C, your new duty by using AC21 is A+B. Is that your case? Thanks.

    AC21, job duties

    I am currently working for a small company. My job duty is very broad, from development, process engineering to quality control. If I find a job in the same industry with a big company, the job duty would include only development and process engineering. Would this be considered "similar"...

    I have the original white I-94 and bunch of I-94s from the H1 approval notices thereafter with same I-94 number. Do I need to hand in each and every one of them (bearing the same number) when departing? Or the first (white one) and the last one (current) will do? What do I need to carry for...

    Using AP to re-enter - I-94 validity.

    So what should one do? If the new I-94 given while using AP is valid only for a year and the H-1 is valid for more than one year from latest entry using AP, what can we do? I read a while ago somebody in this situation did an amendment to the existing H1. Comments please. Thanks.
