    I hope and pray that they take into consideration of the post mark date . Guys any one has an idea how late in night NSC will accept incoming mail.
    NSC gets all the USPS mail only once in AM.Other carriers like fedex,UPS etc, I have seen receipt times until 3PM. may be they accept later too, but I have not seen it in these forum or elsewhere.
    I know this for a fact because,my AOS sent on september 30,2005,(last day when PD was current for my country) reached at 17.59,by FedExsameday ($335.00! went waste) but they picked it up only on 10/3/05 the next working day.USCIS sent back my 485,but processed I140.
    Tried sending it back with fedex tracking, congressmans letter,Tried thru Ombudsman, to no avail.They did not accept my proof of earlier INS notice of accepting Postmark of 4/30/2001 or earlier, for 245(i) petition for illegals.
    So they will bend their rule for illegals, but don't for legals!
    I wish they will consider post mark for you.You can never predict anything from USCIS,there is no rhyme or reason for whatever they do.

    One bad day, my employer just realized that I was overpaid $8000 over 2 years. When I was with the company, I was told it was accountant mistake and I don't have to pay anything. It was all verbal so I don't have any witness.

    After 2 months, I quit with 2 weeks notice.
    Now he wants $8000 back or he won't pay my last 2 weeks.

    I am on EAD and don't know what to do?

    Can anybody advice?

    Since you agree you were overpaid, isnt paying back the 8k the right thing to do?

    Regarding your salary, you can tell him that unless he pays you, you are going to complain to DOL. Last thing he would want is a DOL audit. As he was your H1 sponsor, he is obligated to pay your salary. Cant escape that unless he can prove that the 8k is somehow an 'advance' on your salary.

    Hello All,
    As it is very urgent , i kindly request anyone to reply with a detailed or on which clause is it possible to enter usa in this situation.

    "My brother entered into the U.S around 2004 with
    valid H1B stamping for company A. He was there only
    for few months . He didnt work on any project
    and he doesnt have any pay stubs. Before he left the
    US, company B filed for his H1B visa . After filing
    H1B he went back to india and later accepted
    a different position in singapore . H1B for company B
    was approved successfully after few months.
    Its been nearly almost 2 years since that happened .
    H1B for company B is valid till sep 2007

    Now company C filed for his H1 just few weeks before
    and it was approved successfully. He wants
    to travel to U.S now and start working for company C .

    He went to singapore U.S consulate for H1B visa
    stamping for company B. Unfortunately it was rejected.
    221(g) . Reason officer gave him was " u
    need to have 13 years experience to take up this job".
    My brother tried to explain to them . But they wouldnt
    listen. Also they retained all the H1B documents
    related to comapny B.Also they have put an entry in
    his passport saying 221(g) and the date.

    Company C is still asking him to travel to U.S , since
    he has a valid visa stamping with company A until Aug
    26 2006. My brother has valid H1B petition thru
    company C which is valid till june 2009.

    1)Is it safe and legal to travel with Visa stamping till august 2006 from company A , with 221 (g) stamped in his passport (when he went for
    visa for company B), with proper H1B documents valid till 2009 from company
    C?

    2)Will there be questions at the port of entry ?
    3)Will there be any issues because of the 221(g)
    stamping in the passport (company B visa)?
    4)Any chance he wont be let inside U.S ?
    5)Can he show them the h1b approvals for company C ?
    6)Any tips to handle the officer at POE?
    7)If every thing goes smooth, will his new I-94 be
    valid till june 2009 (date on his company C petition)
    or just another 4 weeks (company A petition)?
    8)If by any chance if he is deported, will it affect
    his future prospects in the U.S?

    Any little help is also appreciated.
    I need answer mainly for question 1 and 8

    1)Is it safe and legal to travel with Visa stamping till august 2006 from company A , with 221 (g) stamped in his passport (when he went for
    visa for company B), with proper H1B documents valid till 2009 from company
    C?

    No Safe as he will be questioned at port of entry

    2)Will there be questions at the port of entry ?

    A Lot
    3)Will there be any issues because of the 221(g)
    stamping in the passport (company B visa)?
    Yes.
    4)Any chance he wont be let inside U.S ?
    90%
    5)Can he show them the h1b approvals for company C ?
    No..as it will confusing for immigration officer with so many 797 forms.
    6)Any tips to handle the officer at POE?
    Can try with chinese or african-american.Little liberal
    7)If every thing goes smooth, will his new I-94 be
    valid till june 2009 (date on his company C petition)
    or just another 4 weeks (company A petition)?
    Just 4 weeks
    8)If by any chance if he is deported, will it affect
    his future prospects in the U.S?

    Yes.. He may not not reenter US for next 10 Yrs.

    I am not an Immigration Lawyer.Better Talk to the Attorney. Its your brother's future

    actually, i think that the EB3 will also make rapid advances come October.
    with the quota exhausted for this year, and the pre-adjudication taking place and with most of the EB3 India applicants having received their GC between 2002 and 2005, i think the dates will advance to 2003 by Dec and to mid 2004 by Feb/March. After that, it is anyone's guess if the quota for India will hold out. As for me, I see at least another year or two wait for my GC, unless the Congress passes a miracle.

    Sorry dude for saying this... but you must be in an illusion. There are tons of EB3s before 2005 simply because before that time, there was no retrogression for quite a while and nobody cared about EB2/EB3 that much.:rolleyes:

    Thanks for your replies.

    His company is paying for it. It is a F500 company. He was concerned that filing green card now might jeopardize his current full time position in case of too many replies and RFE's.

    One question on the bullet below: Does the calculation assume that all 140K visa numbers can be used towards all pending applications, irrespective of country limits. I thought the country limit is going to make the situation much worse.

    If at all USCIS plan it efficiently - one quarter in an year can be used to allocate numbers to retrogressed countries - I am not 100% sure about this, but this is what happened in the July visa fiasco - DOS wanted to maximize utilization and USCIS screwed it up

    To get a copy of your I-140, you need to apply to USCIS using G-639 form. Please read the instruction of the form and you will know more. You need to mention your employer's info and I-140 receipt # etc.
    Now a days it takes time. Almost 3 months.

    URL: http://www.ed.gov/policy/gen/leg/foia/foiatoc.html
    The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. � 552, was enacted in 1966 and generally provides that :

    -Any person has the right to request access to federal agency records or information.
    -All agencies of the U.S. Government are required to disclose records upon receiving a written request for them.
    -There are nine exemptions to the FOIA that protect certain records from disclosure.

    I agree, the email response is no help.
    Can you please elaborate on how to request copy I-140 using G-639 form under FOIA?

    Most of the above documnets were optional 2 years back, but now it become compulsory in all these, Workorder/SOW and PO is very much necessary, for an approval, Since this is a Premium Processing, there are chances of getting an RFE, asking for original contract between client and the vendor, at that time you can ask the Final Vendor or Client to send or Fax the contract directly to USCIS. And ask your attorney to mention in a covering letter in the RFE that the contract is sent by your Vendor Attorney thru mail or fax,

    Last year I had the same situation, on Premuim Processing, and I got the above RFE, and got an year extension, this year I am proactive I am applying for normal processing, 6 months back. with all the above documents.toatl (10 years in US)

    Good Luck to you and let us enlighten us, what happened to your case.

    Prayers to everyone who are in this difficult phase of life extending the H1B.

    May GOD Bless

    Thanks for a quick response. I checked with my lawyer, and he said that this petition letter is the one they sent to the USCIS, which got approved on the H1 Recapture. This petition letter has somebody else�s education, work experience and job duty on it. The application sent to USCIS has the correct name and sponsoring company, which are my name and my sponsoring company name on it. So, the I-797 (Approval Notice) has my name and my sponsoring company on it. The issue is the petition letter is all screwed up. My lawyer does not give me any advices at all. Please advise what I should do for the interview at US Consular due to my petition letter, which contains somebody else�s background on it. Do I have to resubmit again? Will I get rejected? Are there any better options for me? Thank you very much.

    The officer is incorrect. The H-1B visa stamp only allows for reentry into the U.S. from abroad, it does not control your status. You can either go back and explain that the I-94 card attached to the approval notice isn't the most recent, and therefore isn't your current expiration or follow one of the other options presented above.

    VIA USCIS

    Introduction

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is seeking public comment on a proposed federal rule that would adjust fees for immigration benefit applications and petitions.* The proposal, posted to the*Federal Register (http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2010/2010-13991.htm)*on June 11, 2010 for public viewing, would increase overall fees by a weighted average of about 10 percent but would not increase the fee for the naturalization application.

    Background

    USCIS is a fee-based organization with about 90 percent of its budget coming from fees paid by applicants and petitioners to obtain immigration benefits.* The law requires USCIS to conduct fee reviews every two years to determine whether it is recovering its costs to administer the nation�s immigration laws, process applications, and provide the infrastructure needed to support those activities.* This proposed rule results from a comprehensive fee review begun in 2009.*********

    USCIS�s fee revenue in fiscal years 2008 and 2009 was much lower than projected, and fee revenue in fiscal year 2010 remains low.* While USCIS did receive appropriations from Congress, budget cuts of approximately $160 million have not bridged the remaining gap between costs and anticipated revenue.* A fee adjustment, as detailed in the proposed rule, is necessary to ensure USCIS recovers the costs of its operations while also meeting the application processing goals identified in the 2007 fee rule.*

    Highlights of 2010 Proposed Fee Rule

    The proposed fee rule would increase the average application and petition fees by approximately 10 percent.

    Understanding the unique importance of naturalization, USCIS is proposing that the naturalization application fee not be increased.

    The proposed rule would establish three new fees for:



    Regional center designation under the Immigrant Investor Pilot Program (EB-5);
    Individuals seeking civil surgeon designation; and
    Recovery of the cost of processing immigrant visas granted by the Department of State.
    The rule also proposes to adjust fees for the premium processing service.* This would ensure that USCIS can continue to modernize to become a more efficient and effective organization.

    The proposed fee structure also reduces fees for five individual applications and petitions as a result of lower processing costs:



    Petition for Alien Fianc� (Form I-129F);
    Application to Extend/Change Nonimmigrant Status (Form I-539);
    Application to Adjust Status From Temporary To Permanent Resident (Form I-698);
    Application for Family Unity Benefits (Form I-817); and
    Application for Replacement Naturalization/Citizenship Document (Form N-565).*

    I am sorry to hear about your situation.

    Your attorney may be completly wrong about the labor substitution. The USCIS has passed new rule, The labor will be voided once its passed 180days after approval. So the approved labors from your company has no value.

    Did you try utilizing AC21 as your 140 approved and the 180days crossed?

    Again I am not a lawyer, please talk to experienced attorneys.

    Thank you,
    Aluri

    Hello folks,

    i need some expert opinion here. These are my primary details.

    COMPANY A:
    1. Perm Labor - Nov 2006. (EB2)
    2. I-140 approved - Nov 2007
    3. I-485 filed - July 2007.
    4 EAD - oct 2007
    5 FP - Nov 2007
    6 AP - Oct 2007
    H1-B extension denied in dec 2007 due to variety of company A issues.
    Invoked AC21 yesterday with company B.

    COMPANY B: Bought substitution labor of Feb 2004 EB3.

    I-140 filed : NSC : paper based filing no documents has been sent waiting for RFE on July 13 2007.

    But my labor substitute on 140 has been used for somebody else by mistake and now company B says they have few other labors to substitute and they say we'll respond to the query saying that the original one has been used and please consider the second one. Attorney has made this mistake since many labors were filed at that time and the labor that they have used for me has been approved . Do you guys whatever the attorney is suggesting is going to work? Please let me know i haven't got an RFE yet..

    All,

    I feel that those who concurrently filed I-140/485 in July 2007 are very lucky!

    Here is my situation -

    Previous Employer -
    EB3,PD-Jan'04,I-140 cleared. Switched in June 2007 and wasn't able to file I-485 in July 2007

    New Employer -
    EB2, PD-Dec'-07, I-140 (Feb'08 - pending)

    Question -

    Based on Jun'08 Visa bulletin the dates for EB2-India were at Apr'04. Filed for I-140/485 based on my old priority date for EB3 labor (Jan'04). Explaining USCIS for PD transfer.

    Well, folks at NSC did not understand the PD transfer concept and send my application back. Unclear as to what do now. I guess need to wait until the dates for EB2-India reach Dec'07 such that I can file.

    Any "Creative" thoughts on how to approach USCIS moving forward.

    Thanks in advance for your replies.
