13-2011.02 and 13-2011.01
So as per this law form, since they both start with a 13 we are good?
Yes. That’s correct. You may switch job titles to any category starting from main category 13.
For peace of mind; my best advice to you is to reconfirm with an immigration Attorney. (You may try to post this question on any free chat sessions offered by leading immigration law firm/s).
My wife got her EAD approved for 2 years, she is suppose to get her extension only for a year as on Sep 10 when they renewed her card the priority dates were current.

(Abhi_Jais, the link u pasted wasn't working for me.)
Also, for 180 days, she can stay in USA but I am not sure if these 180 days is from the date she last time entered in USA or from the day her visa ends.
I suggest you to consult a good attorney. It is suggested to spend some time and money on attorney and help her stay out of trouble.
I have a question, this is about my mom's H1 B visa. Her H1B visa is about to expire in one month.(she had a maximum stay for 6 years). But my
through employment, but I don't see any for family based greencard process). Any help would be really appreciated.
I'm in the same boat as you (I140/I485/I131/I765 - filed concurrently). I'm trying to self file for my H1 extension. I was not sure about one question on form I-129 part 4.7 the question is
Have you ever filed an immigrant petition for any person in this petition?
Last year when I filed for H1 extension I had checked 'NO'
But now that I-140 is pending, I'm not sure if I should check 'YES' or 'NO'
I will appreciate if you can help me with this.
We have an excellent opportunity to set-up an IV booth. Details are posted on So Cal yahoo group with the link in my signature.
Venue: Diwali Mela, San Diego.
Date: Saturday, November 10th.
Target: A whopping 5000 visitors for recruitment and educational purposes.
I am looking for at least 4 So Cal volunteers/shift to take responsibility for 2 hour shifts at the booth. If San Diego/Orange County/LA members take turns in the booth shifts that day, this goal is achievable!

1. My EAD application status at USCIS website got changed to,
Current Status: Approval notice sent.
this morning. My heartfelt thanks to ImmigrationVoice activists for this.
My spouse's EAD application status still shows as,
Current Status: Case received and pending.
In my case, my spouse's application is the derivative application of mine. Any incidence of spouse's EAD case getting stuck while the primary's application going through?
2. Also, Is EAD approval anyway related/tied to I-485 Application? In that case, it is understandable for my spouse not to see her status changed. Because, her I-485 Applications status is shown as,
Current Status: Fingerprint fee rejected and notice mailed; case in suspense.
though we both have already finished our finger printing. Our attorney says, its USCIS's mistake and he has already sent $70(once again) towards her fingerprinting fees to be on the safer side.
Any information would be helpful.
1. What is CIS is returning visa #'s to DOS.?
There are some unused and unallocated visa numbers reported by various means. Few# got reported by consulate abroad and few reported by USCIS.
2. How USCIS and Consulate can report unused Visa #'s?
You might be reading the I-485 rejection cases by CIS and Consulate
You might be hearing about USCIS is unable to process the applications received
You might be hearing people could not able to file whose cased were current in June.
All these Visa #'s are reported back
3. To me around 20000 such numbers are available for this years quota
4. Can my applications sneak into this #?
Answer is uncertain.
If your have an old priority dates then probability is high
If you have recent 05/06/07 priority date then there could be issues in issuing an EAD. People whose PD are old will take legal action against USCIS of they do not consider their case and approve yours.
5. What would August VB have?
If they do not approve any July2 filling then here is what they will do
a) Retain petition with old PD and adjust them in Aug
b) Reject all I-485 application for candidates recent PD
They are making a decision fast, that the reason Aug VB is not yet published
6. Will USCIS reverse the new decision?
Answer is NO. Why? There is no such pattern in USCIS behavior and July time is running out.
7. How about Law suite?
:) Do not worry there is a slick chance. All govt depts. are inter related.
Don�t you think Justice dept does not know about this before issuing the reversal notification in July. All CIS communication also being forwarded to Justice dept.
State--> Immigration --> Justice are all same with different names.
I have no hope from this process. It's just building a fake hope.
8. People are still filling the application.
Candidates are filling because of advice of their attorney. When you deal with the attorney directly they will encourage you to apply because they will get the money now.
There is no guarantee that you will process your application from XYZ law firm in Oct.
If you file now through them, you are bonded with him until you hear some good news from CIS.
There is a say in India.. Always try to out of trouble and Attorney. They will tell everything is possible.
Another thing after July 16th, I am not sure if they can charge money to you directly. They will rush you to pay before just 16th.
Declaimer: I am not an attorney or do not have any background of law. This is my conclusion from reading IV and many other forums. My PD is 2007 EB2.
I dont think whatever you are saying is true...
State--> Immigration --> Justice are all same with different names.
Please be careful while you post since lot of people are viewing it.
Well i feel the blood report might say something of that sort...just guessing!!
In the "Pre-July 2nd world" those 2 dates used to vary by 1 or 2 days so no one used to care.
Well - so NSC is doing I-140 for Apr 23rd and Texas is July 21st... I would have got my freedom by now if i had filed I-140 at Texas :) Another good thing in this Bulletin Vermont H1b extension processing have moved a lot - from Apr 23rd to Oct 1st 2007 - wow !!!
Good Luck folks!!
In terms of processing dates, which date is relevant?
USCIS Received Date: E.g., July 25, 2007
USCIS Notice Date: E.g., Sept 12, 2007?
I got only my receipt number for I-765 on sep 18th and rest of it today.
I called the USCIS and the IO said all the receipts are there today.
Thanks for all the valuble information.
A while ago, it used to be that the stream was cut off after one hour. Off late, I am not listening. Also check your local public radio. In CO it is www.cpr.org
For funding reasons, NPR has veered away from its middle of the road position in the last 5 years. Thus, in my view, it lost neutrality and my listenership.
can we listen to this program online?
Today I have received a mail from our Immigration team saying that they are going to file my GC petition next month (July-2010) for Employment-3rd category (EB-3). But I have 17 years of education (in India, 10+2+3+2) plus 11 years of progressive experience. Am I not qualified for EB-2 category? When I asked the same to our Immigration team, they said, "You do not qualify for EB2 because you do not meet the minimum salary and educational requirements. USCIS does not accept a 3-year Bachelor + 2-year Master education combination to qualify for EB2". What does it mean? Please some one let me know what are the requirements to qualify for EB-2 category? Thank you again in advance.
