Hello Friends,


I am layed off and on compnay payroll until Jan 18th 2016. Not sure if my company would file for cancellation of my H1B visa. My Visa is valid for the company until

Nov 2016.I also have an approved I-140 PERM from the current employer for green card. I have the receipt number too.I had family issues and to resolve them I am in

INDIA. THey have now been taken care of.I am in the process of interview with 2 companies.

Question: How can I maintain a valid Status in USA.

Option 1: Apply for a B-1/B-2 tourist visa.Is this a valid option?
Q: Should I come to USA before applying for a tourist visa or apply for the visa first and then arrive to USA but before 18th Jan. I would prefer the later, please

confirm.
Q: What is the approximate expense for the same.
Q: If I get a job the employer would need to apply for change in status to H1B from B-1/B-2 tourist visa. Will the new H1b be valid immediately after application/will

I be able to work immediately after application or will it be on a lottery basis and validity start date would be OCtober 1st 2016?


Option 2: Apply for a dependent visa based on my wifes F1 status.
Q: What are the chances of approval of my F2 Visa.
Q: What is the approximate expense for the same.
Q: If I get a job the employer would need to apply for change in status to H1B from F2 dependent visa. Will the new H1b be valid immediately after application/will I

be able to work immediately after application or will it be on a lottery basis and validity start date would be OCtober 1st 2016?

Option 3: Get a job and continue the status. I am working on it but the timeline is lengthy. so would need a workaround.

Option 4: Apply for a F1 Status.
Q: What are the chances of approval of my F1 Visa.
Q: What is the approximate expense for the same.

H1B revoked and applied for H4 .Now how to get back to H1B1B
Posted: 01 March 2017 - 11:25 PM
Here is my situation

I completed my 5.5 years on my H1B visa and my i-140 got approved in May 2014. Now I came to bench and my employer fired me due to non-billable status and canceled my H1B visa. On March 1st 2017 I received SMS notification from USCIS regarding revocation of my H1B status. But my spouse was on H1B from employerB and is on project now. So I applied for H4 in Jan 1st week and waiting for getting my status converted to H4. I heard it will take at least 2 months before my H4 get approved by USCIS.

1)Now what are my options to get back to H1B and start working again?

2)As my employer revoked my H1B, does that affect my i-140 ?

3)Many of my colleagues are suggesting me to get into a project and find another employer to file for H1B. Is this a viable option for considering the fact that my i-140 may also got revoked along with my H1B. Do you think it will be problematic to get back to H1B ? what are my options ?

4) Do I need to travel back to India and reenter once my H4 is approved or come back with another H1B ?

5)Any leagl problems as my current H1B is revoked and still waiting for H4 status?

6)Does my situation make me on illegal status now?

7)What are my options to get back to H1B considering my situation?



Appreciate your suggestions

Thanks
-Raj
