I was working with employer A until April 2017 On unexpired STEM. Applied for h1b 2017 and was revoked within 60 days of application because of Discrimination EEOC case which was settled with 'resignation' & not termination which surely they wouldn't have informed USCIS. They would tell uscis reason for revocation as termination instead. I am still on a valid stem (expires March 22, 2019) with New employer B since Sep 2017, who is applying for h1b this April 2018. DSO says I have valid f1 status from SEVIS and I do not require data fix. Q1. Do I need a data fix at SEVIS? Q2. Do I need to show any USCIS revocation documents from the former employer when applying for fresh h1b with NEW employer B? I don't even have these docs from the former employer. I don't want to dig up the past, if not needed.

Hi Kumar, I got RFE for Employee-Employer relationship and client letter. I’m ready with all the PO, SOW, MSA, experience, offer letter etc. to submit. But Only Client letter is not possible to get. What is the alternate option if Client letter is not there?
SOW which is submitted at the time of petition is expired by July15 and location is A. So submitting the new SOW for the same client which is valid for June16. But the location is B. Immigration teams said since they raised the petition with location A, they will use the same location now, even the location differs in the new SOW. Will it be a problem?
And I have provided the client contact details, but I will not work for him. Will USCIS do call him?
 Can you please respond asap.

Hi Kumar,

I have an I-797 approved petition for Non-Immigration H1B visa received recently but have not got the H1B stamped yet.

Now I need to apply for a B1 visa from my current employer for a business meeting. There is a question in form DS-160 as below :

"Has anyone ever filed an immigrant petition on your behalf with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services? " Yes/No

Please confirm what should be my response. The confusion is that I-797 is for a Non-Immigrant Petition while the question is for a Immigrant petition.

Please reply and help urgently.

Hell Sir. Need URGENT help please !

My H1B petition was approved for Fairfield, Connecticut for X client. Now my client and location has changed to Atlanta, Georgia with Y client. In March-2015 I got the LCA for Atlanta location but my travel got delayed to May-2015.

My visa got stamped in May-2015 but due to the new law effective 9-Apr-2015 to amend the petition if there is change in the location I was not able to travel.

Post this, petition amendment process started by my employer. Initially employer said that I can travel once they receive the Receipt Notice, I129 form and LCA. I got my updated LCA, Receipt No. but not the I129 form. But now they are claiming that I can only travel once we receive the approved petition from USCIS which will take 3-4 months under regular processing.

My concerns:

1 - Can I travel while petition amendment is in process, if yes then what are the required documents and how can I or employer get those?

2 - Can this regular processing request can be upgraded to premium processing to expedite the process?

3 - Can I travel with "Receipt Notice", I129 and LCA or should I wait for approved petition?

PLEASE HELP !! I am losing time being in India since my visa is already stamped :(
