Re: LPR Visit to the UK

Thanks all.

Yeah, there are flights (I thought they were supposed to be cheap!), but I am concerned that anything could change while I'm there. Tricky decision.

LPR Visit to the UK

Not sure if this should be here or in the immigration forum.

As far...

Have him take a look at this (https://britishexpats.com/wiki/Pulaski%27s_Ways:_How_to_Live_and_Work_in_the_USA) link. I'm not an expert - but it looks like he would have a tough time to qualify for a...

Re: Moving to America with partner and two children

My opinion (based on my limited, but relevant, experience). Get a job with a US-based big tech firm in the UK. Work for 1-2 years, chose your path carefully to include the chance to get over to HQ or...

Re: I-94 Expiring but L1A still valid - what renewal is needed?

As posters above have said, but to reiterate your organization must apply to extend your petition. You need to get on to this right away as company processing time/lawyers/USCIS can eat into 5...

Re: L1B validity, stamp vs I129S

Your visa is only valid with a valid supporting petition.

Re: Update GC at 14

Wow, I wasn't aware of this.

My daughter was 12 when she got hers and it has an expiry date of 10 years.

Does she still need to update it at 14?

Thanks.

Re: Green Card Employment

The advice I saw was that you should wait a bit (3-6months) if you had a long term goal of citizenship - apparently moving sooner, while legal, can raise suspicions.
