Topic: Any hope for PD 2012

I have stopped worrying about my 2013-Feb PD. I don't even visit this site frequently and don't search for any immigration news anymore. My stress level is down and blood-pressure is back to normal as a result. :P

Topic: 401(K) Contribution?

On Related topic, I am moving all of my balance in 401K from target date funds, which are more risky, to stable value funds. Looking more like we may see a market correction of ~15% or so in coming months. Increasing interest rates, Geopolitical issues, insane president, Russia probes, porn-star lawsuits and mid-term elections in november are recipes for disaster. It will be a buying opportunity of life-time once the dust settles and good to have cash in hand to invest then.

Topic: Do one need to file I-539 for h4 to h1B conversion?

My Wife is working on h4 for her employer and employer is filing her H1B petition this year. Immigration attorney is saying we don't need to file I-539 COS for new h1B and I-129 should cover COS.

However, i am getting conflicting information online. For example, I see on "Path2USA" that for H4 to h1B conversion one must file COS via I-539.

From your experience, is the immigration attorney correct?

Topic: Buying house in current climate


All,

Is it true when there is a recession and house prices go down, then there will be an increase in rent price because people need place to live? so even if there is an economic down turn, rent prices will always increase.

Of course, this is outside of immigration concerns. Solely based on economics.




I am not an economist but I think rents might just increase a tiny bit or remain unchanged during a recession. Let's assume current foreclosure and pre-foreclosure rate is 0.5% which means 1 in 200 homeowners have to foreclose on their property and rent out. This incoming flow is currently priced in rental market. Let's assume ~10% of homeowners have to foreclose now because of a recession and surely rental demands will go up because of this and prices will go up.

At the same time , we have regular renters who cannot afford to pay their rents anymore during recession. They tends to get more creative with living arrangements, such as moving in parents basement, friends home, renting out single room , moving back to india (just kidding:P). Thus more rentals are freed up and a balance is maintained between supply and demand in rental market. Hence, rents might remain unchanged.

Just my hypothesis. I wasn't here when last recession happened. But people here can confirm if they saw an increase in rents during 2008-2010.

Topic: Buying house in current climate

Always a good decision to by home in hot property markets. I have h1B till April-2019 but decided to buy a townhouse last year anyways. not meant to be bragging but just to help you make a decision, Here is the current zillow description of my townhome:

This home last sold for $610,000 in May 2017. The Zestimate for this house is $750,960, which has increased by $20,123 in the last 30 days. The Rent Zestimate for this home is $3,185/mo, which has increased by $225/mo in the last 30 days.


I couldn't be happier as i have options to sell or rent [which would covers for my monthly mortgage premiums] if something goes wrong in my h1B extension in 2019. Only downside is, i had to sell most of my RSUs and Employer Stocks from stock purchase plan to make up for 20% down-payment , which is up by ~12% since last year. But my home is up by ~23% during same time period. :)

Good luck with your decision. I would say just buy a small 2-3 BHK townhome. Depending on your area, a 2-3 BHK might not be as expensive as mine and may still have good appreciation over next few years.

Topic: H4 EAD revoke plan delayed


It's a good decision to go ahead with h1b filing.
I have a strong hunch that fwd.us (Facebook's ngo) has a role to play in this plot. You can see the tweets coming from fwd and Todd schulte implicating that h4ead might not go away after all..

Fwd.us lobbies with US administration on behalf of silicon valley tech companies for immigrants because they need cheap labor to keep their businesses profitable



Yeah and i hope H4 EAD stays, but i don't want to take any chance. Also, I am from Silicon valley , work in Santa Clara and have friends who work in apple, google, Altera, intel , Qcom, Bcom etc. I find it hard to believe that they are a cheap labor force. They and I are paid at least as much, if not less, with compared to our teammates who have GC or citizenship. These companies have Salary matching Analysis tools which they run on yearly bases to determine no one is underpaid.

Topic: H4 EAD revoke plan delayed


You are absolutely right ..this is just to keep h4 eads from applying h1bs this year..they will definitely remove it after April ..



That is exactly what i think it is. I am not gonna be fooled by this ploy. lol. Good news is County affiliated org where my wife works on H4 EAD, has agreed to file her H1B. If we get it , we get it. If not, trouble is in the air. :(

Just a thought : How difficult it is to come up with a simple bill like 1M H1Bs pay $25K each and get the green card within a couple of months. trumpets gets his $25B for wall and border. Everyone is happy. :) Jokes aside, i and lot of other folks on h1B will be willing to do this.

Topic: Temporary good news for H4 EAD. Court grants another abeyance.


Good news.....this should buy another few months for most H4 EAD holders to get an extension.

Just a thought: If your renewal is not until sometime next year, another option would be for the H1 holder to switch jobs and apply for H4 & H4EAD in premium along with the new H1 transfer, this way you don't have to wait until next year when you are due for renewal. My attorney said this can be done, however i did not need this as we renewed H1/H4 EAD recently.







I am in same situation. My h1B and my Wife's H4 expires in April-2019. So we could not renew before Oct-2018. However, changing job won't work in my opinion as you can just amend your current h1B which has expiry date set to April-2019. you do not get H1b extension just for changing the job. Let's say if i change my job this month, my H1B just needs to be amended and i can not apply for extension before 6 months of expiry date.

Since my h1b is still set to expire by April-2019 while i do amendment , H4 EAD is also tied to that expiry date. You can not get h4 EAD extended beyond expiry date of h1b.

You make statements about constitution and yet you don't understand constitution properly. Under constitution, all of following entities has a right to enforce a law: A president, Supreme court and The congress.

Please stick to you low life scum job with your consultant and let us worry about H4 EAD.

Not sure why you folks got so exited by POTUS using the term "merit based immigration". Careful what you wish for as it might come back to haunt you.

Topic: IV proposal on HR392

Chutiye speak for yourself. You may not be as culturally assimilated doesn't mean all of desis are likewise. And fuck your culture assimilation ideology. I have known many more dreamers than you will ever get to as i reside in one of border states. Bad Mexican habits are still deeply rooted in dreamers. On Surface, they may look like normal American, but true colors are reflected once you get to know them. Nepotism, speaking their native language in front of other people who doesn't speak it, intimidation, petty crimes, smoking weed openly and feeling entitled to free loading anywhere and everywhere are some of the reasons why they will never be part of American society. Coming from my experience while studying at a university in one of sanctuary cities.

There is no concept of Legal vs Illegal in liberal media though. They refer to all of us as immigrants. Only substantial difference is dreamers Vs. non- dreamers. :D

Sanders reiterated those requirements on Wednesday: "securing the border and closing legal loopholes, ending extended family chain migration, canceling the visa lottery and providing a permanent solution on DACA."

So basically, i don't have any hopes.

Just call USCIS customer service and request a status update. They will be able to find out what is going on with your application and assign you a case/inquiry number to follow-up on.
