I have an approved I-140. I recently applied for H1B extension with a client letter showing the project is expected to last for six months. What are the chances I will still be given a 3-year extension?

Answer If the client letter says the project will last six months, it is unlikely that the case will be approved for three years. The USCIS often sends RFEs on such issues, asking for proof of specialty occupation work for the requested duration. (23.May.2016)In frequent sessions...

My LC was recently approved. Is it advisable to use my own lawyer to file the I-140 so that my employer cannot revoke it in the future if I move to a new company?

Answer The I-140 is signed by the employer. It is the employer's filing. Therefore, the employer can still revoke the I-140 no matter which attorney files it. The only exception is for self-petitioned categories, including EB1(a) and EB2 national interest waiver (NIW) cases. (09.May.2016)In frequent sessions...
