I am currently planning on visiting South Korea this winter in need of completing my physical test for the military. It is mandatory for Korean to serve for the military for 18 months, and I am required to have my physical test done in South Korea. I was going to travel outside of the US with a... Read more »
Thanks for your time on this question. I have been in the States for 8+ years on H1B. Two of my past US employers got my I140 approved in 2013 and 2016 respectively. I am Indian and it will take ages for my priority date to go current. I will be changing jobs a few times in the next several years.... Read more »
Short answer is yes. The i-140 is based upon the employer petitioning on your behalf. You are the beneficiary of the visa petition. In your query you state "it will take years for my priority date to go current." I am assuming that your preference is something less than first, as a first...Read more »
From a tax perspective the return has been filed when it's placed in the mail. If something happens in the future with the IRS that will be an adjustment of that return. There's nothing that can unfile it.
I would also check with an immigration attorney to make sure the...Read more »
You did technically overstay since the filing was rejected. However, I doubt it will have any consequences. Unlawful presence is most problematic when a person remains in the USA and is trying to change status to another visa or adjust status. However that is not the case with you. For those...Read more »
My spouse is a college student. In 2017, my spouse made about $3,000 from employment, while I made about $14,000. In 2018, my spouse made about $3,000 and I made about $4,000 from employment. In 2019, we got married and filed a joint tax return for the year. In 2019, she made about $1,000 from... Read more »
The couple is 13 years apart and the man is of illegal status. Will there be any complications in the process of trying to get married? Also let's say the girl is trying to get a legal status for her parents, will her getting married affect that as well?
The age difference shouldn't matter. The key for marriage based immigration is that the marriage has to be "bona fide", which means that the marriage cannot only be for immigration purposes. They have to want to be married to each other even if you remove immigration from the...Read more »
When I read through USCIS website, it seems fine if I have a valid L visa. However, I do not know if it is possible for me to travel outside of the US with an EAD card or when my green card is under processing.
Hi! I am in America thanks to an L2 visa. My husband’s company hired a third party to help me get my Social Security Number. I got the card last week. I did not apply for an Employment Authorization Document. In fact, I am not sure I will do it.
The first questions means that USCIS accepted your petition and an officer is currently reviewing it. Next, the priority date is when your petition was received by USCIS. The other date is the day you were notified of the status update.
I would like to know what my options for the green card are regarding my status (L2 EAD holder, currently working as an Operations Specialist for a pharmaceutical company). I was told the best path is to have my company sponsor my convertion to H1B visa so that I am not an L1... Read more »
L2 to green card path: EB2 or EB3. Both require an employer to sponsor you. I don't know what you do, so you might qualify for an EB2 with a National Interest Waiver. This would waive the need for a job offer or sponsor.
EB visas are subject to a cap. You can view the visa bulletin...Read more »
