HI Shankar,
I have a question.  I am on F1 visa(on STEM OPT working for an employer), trying to bring my wife on F2 visa. but my wife has already attended H1b stamping 4 months back and she got 221G and later we canceled the H1b petition by intimating to her employer.

In this case getting F2 visa will be a problem or She can get F2 easily. If so what kind of questions she need to be prepared.

Hi Shankar my question is on L1 A blanket visa extension. Is it a mandatory requirement that I am onsite when the extension petition is filed ? Or can I file for an extension from my home country India as well ?

Hi Shankar,

Thanks for the response and I really appreciate the responses you give. It helps people for sure.
By the way, can I start my work on receipt date?
I am currently on F1 but my employer filed for I129. I am not able to view the status, I called the USCIS and the officer said she can only disclose the case status to my employer or my attorney. Can you please let me know what I need to do? My semester is starting soon and I am not sure sure what steps I need to take.

I have read your response way back in 2013. I just want to confirm whether is it the same case now? I have below scenario:
My mother lives alone in India. I want visitor visa for her so that she can live with me in the USA. I am on h1b. She does not have property in her name but in father's name. Can she get the visa? Thanks in advance.
