    All H1s and other workers need not file LC or 140, they can directly file 485 after 5 years.

    Are you referring to HR 3271

    Hi Jaxen,

    Are you referring to HR 3271 ? If so, isn't that only a bill, not a law (yet) ?

    What about HR261

    HR 261 was presented to judiciary commetee on 01/06/2005 regarding extension of 245(i)
    When to expect further action?

    Not only

    It applies to everybody who otherwise except meeting the deadline for immigration petition qualify for 245 (i). Like folks who were denied or might be denied the AOS because of failure to maintane ligal status.

    what effect will it have on h-1bs?

    thanks for the info, Akatu!
    so what effect will it have on the h-1bs whose labor is still pending? does it mean that if the bill is indeed passed you then don't have to get the labor and i140 but instead directly applying for i-485?
    also HR3271 looks like going nowhere in congress as the last update was in 2003.
    anyway it is the only good news heard for such a long time and hopefully it will benefit everybody.

    It means

    In my assumption, those who have violated their status in the past, but have filled their LC or other 1-140 before April 2002 as per requested changes to the existing Law) may ajust AOS paying fine $1000. That is what it means.
    As per HR ...2003, I have seen it on the Congress website but do not know what become of it.
    If anyone has follow up info please share
