Murthy Law Firm: Keeping the Immigrant Community Informed

These are trying times in the world of U.S. immigration law. We at the Murthy Law Firm understand that many of you are worried about what the future may hold. Justifiably, as employees, you are concerned about your lives and your authorization to work in the United States. American employers of foreign nationals and foreign consulting companies that support U.S. business and industry are anxious about steps the Administration could take.

We understand your concern. We hear your voices. Our attorneys have been barraged this week by questions like:

“I’m an H1B worker and I want to fly to India for a wedding. Are they going to let me back into the U.S. if I leave?”

“I’m in H-4 status, and waited for years to get an employment authorization document (EAD) – is it now going to be taken away?”

“Is it true that I can’t return to the United States using my advance parole (“AP”) document?”

We are working diligently to provide as much clarity as possible in this period of uncertainty. We have created a dedicated page on MurthyDotCom, Current Administration & Immigration, to list all our articles related to executive orders and other immigration actions taken by the new Administration. This page is regularly updated with news and analysis regarding the ongoing events and changes related to immigration law, and separating what has been enacted from what is, as yet, unsubstantiated.

We recognize the importance of posting the information in a timely manner, and strive to do so. But, more important than speed is accuracy. We feel it is our responsibility to ensure the information we post can be relied upon by our readers. We do not post baseless rumors or engage in unnecessary fear mongering. And, in the rare occasion when we post unconfirmed information, we make it crystal clear to our readers about the unconfirmed nature of the news provided, and, even then, we only do so if there is good reason to believe it ultimately will be confirmed.

Here are a few suggestions of recent postings we feel you will find especially helpful:
