Re: Green card sponsorship for H-1B

Re: Green card sponsorship for H-1B

It's not wrong, it's misrepresentation to gain an immigration benefit, you've just outlined yourself an example. All you seem to be disagreeing with is the degree of misrepresentation. If you get...

Re: H-4 Visa-Work and UK/US Tax

Well, maybe, but USCIS seems to be taking the approach of sitting on the applications, so it's the same difference.

I see another referendum as a possibility, apparently some MPs want a referendum on whatever deal is agreed. Which presupposes a deal is agreed.

Re: Green card sponsorship for H-1B

That's not technically the case, if you did that it can be considered mispresentation to gain an immigration benefit, so there is this 2 year rule. In practice enforcement seems to be next to nil,...

Re: Green card sponsorship for H-1B

As Mr Folinsky mentioned, as soon as the I-140 is approved you can renew the H-1B so the time remaining for H-1B doesn't really matter, however my reason for commenting is the bit about "certain...

Re: Can I get married in the US on a H-2A/H-2B Visa?

Re: SB-1 - Green Card not Returned

I think it might be intentional, you're basically saying you've been outside of the country too long and been granted a visa to get back in, so you'd need to apply for a new card once they've figured...

Re: I have no idea about anything!!

Depends on the visa, you might be J-1 or H-1B, assuming they'll even do the paperwork. But if you look at the USCIS processing times that will give you a vague idea.
