    What papers to keep?

    So I finally got my GC, after 5.5 years of wait. Over these years I have accumulated a pile of documents, including old H-1 approvals, receipts, multiple AP/EADs, W-2s going back 10 years. I was wondering, what papers do I need to preserve, and which ones can I toss away? Will USCIS ever issue...

    EB-2 India visas almost gone?

    The Dec bulletin says 38% of EB-2 India and China have been used up. I am assuming that means 38% India and 38% China quotas. The annual quota for each category is about 3000, which means about 1140 visas were used up as of end of first week of Nov. In my tracker, I counted 27 EB-2 India...

    Write to Zoe Lofgren for namecheck

    During a concall with Rajiv Khanna he shed some light on the namecheck mess. He said he talked to an FBI agent who used to be his client. As per this agent when a manual check is needed, it's assigned to an FBI agent fresh from training. This job is so boring that nobody wants to do it, thats...

    H1 renewal after expiry?

    My H-1B expired this Jan. It was 8th year extension. My employer did not renew it because I have EAD. I anticipate huge EB2 retrogression soon and I am a bit scared of having to renew EAD/AP for many years to come. I think I will be able to persuade my employer to renew my H-1B, but the question...

    Renewing H1-B after 6th year while AOS pending

    Folks, Is it possible to get H1-B renewal after 6 years if labor and I-40 are approved? I mean 7th year H1-B renewals are granted only to people pending labor for more than a year. If the labor is approved, is the rule still valid? Thanks.

    Re-entering on AP while H1B visa is valid

    Folks, If H1B visa is valid (but not stamped on passport), is it possible to reenter the country on AP? I read somewhere that if H1-B visa is valid, there is no need for A.P. But does it mean if you also have A.P you cannot use it?
