    H1B Will expire 6 month short of completion of J1 waiver

    You can file for H1B extension if you have an approved I140 The I-485 should not have been denied, NIW allows you to file for 1-140 and 485 together, even before the 3 yrs in H1B are completed. That is ofcourse if your dates are current and you are not from a retrogressed country.

    Need Help!

    Your situation is complicated. Get a good immigration lawyer. Regarding visiting US for CS, most people take B1 visa, but that may not be possible for you, as you have already shown intent to immigrate.

This is due to retrogression for India. Presently priority date for EB2 is sep 2006. 2. Once you get I 140 filed and approved, you...

    Would you do it again?

    I feel many people loose perspective when they are in our situation. Repeatedly listening to sob stories of other people and reading about how the "system" is screwing us, will affect us all in a negative way. All I can say is that in my journey, at every stage I met people who were...

    Would you do it again?

    All the points made by by evryone here are valid, although I dont agree with most of them. Please try to remember why you decided to come here in the first place. We were all adults, no one forced us. We made a decision, based on our life circumstances, that coming to US would be better. We made...

    NIW in subspeciality after fellowship

    Around 1-2 years ago, USCIS allowed specialist to file NIW. However, not all physicians in HPSA doing there JJ waiver are eligible. Apparently the place you are doing your waiver in should be in a "physician scarcity area" which may not be the same as "health professiona; shortage area". I am...

    J1 Waiver Transfer

    I think if u talk to your local state health dept people and let them know how u r being abused, they will be supportive of you for a transfer as long as the transfer is in hpsa. Dont worry and dont allow yourself to be abused any more. Is your employer a "desi"?
