Remanded LC or New application

hi All,

First time user, great forum!

I'm located in So Cal. My LC was remanded to SESA (SWA) with PD of 7/2001. If I've an option of moving to a different company, which will file a new LC for me -- which application has a better chance of passing ? Is the remanded application completely dead ? OR can PERM or other regulations ever give a "Lift" to an application which is already three yrs old. My 6 years expire in April 2006.

-- Thanks

Which state is your other company filing LC from?

I would have your present attorney check on the status of your present LC. Since remanded applications are being reviewed, I would find out from the attorney what your chances are with your present LC.

PERM will most likely be available by the end of this year.
So you dont have to worry about yor H-1 expiring.

Ya, you can say that! :D

But with a big "BUT"…I still have two more steps to go thru...you know how those things are crawling...still in hell until you get the physical card. But it's a big relief in a way, though!

H1B 6 Year Completion Question

Could anyone (especially who are in 6th, 7th year of H1B) tell me when H1B 6 years are suppposed to complete. Is the date same as when H1 was issued in india? Or is it when H1 LCA was applied?

In my case, I came here in December but my visa expires in August so I'm getting 5 and half year instead of 6. I checked and found that my LCA was applied in August.

Please enlighten me.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Certified Fainally!!!!!!

You should have received an NOF letter from the DOL…it says you can add more information to the ad (about the job responsibilities/requirements). But it shouldn't deviate too much from the original ad so to make it look like a new posting altogether. I would suggest you should run the same ad to avoid any problems with the DOL. You know how these things work with DOL. To answer your question, yes, I ran the same ad and in the same newspaper.

Hope the info helps you.

Note: I also replied to your PM. The response contain the same info.

Re: H1B 6 Year Completion Question

Your "H1-B" clock starts the day you first landed in US. It's not when your case was filed or approved or visa stamped/approved.

You came here in Dec but your current visa is expiring in Aug may just be a coincidence or may be the random visa increments caused it.

The definition of 6 years H1-B is the absolute number of days/years that you physically stayed in US. You can claim all your vacation days that you spend outside US if you think you fall short of the 1 year (DOL) limit to get 7th year extension. Otherwise, file for regular extension or 7th year extension.

Hope it "enlightens" you.

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Certified Fainally!!!!!!

The ad was very simple and precise. All it says, "The Company is looking for a S/W engineer. Check the website for a detailed job description." (Not the exact words, though!).

But generally, no one runs the ad more than one line (may be 2 including the phone number and the company website URL). Remember, the job posting should also be posted on your company website.

I didn't understand the second part of the question - "If I put BS+0.....". You get NOF either your company laid off in the past or the job requirement itself is BS+0/MS+0.
