Hi Friends,
I am planning to schedule visa stamping but before that, I recognize that there is a spelling mistake in my I797 document, so please can you suggest me how to proceed for stamping in the mean time I requested my attorney for a change of name.
Do you want me to go for stamping or you want me to wait until the document is changed?

Hi Folks,

My H1 B VISA is approved for 3 years from date it was filed with my new employer.I was hired for in house project and then company has filed H1 B Amendment with my current client details a month after I have joined.Now my current status of amendment is in RFE.

Problem here is,I have travel scheduled on 27th May,2017 and reason for my travel is, my marriage is scheduled then. I am not sure if I can travel to India and get the VISA stamping done while Amendment is in RFE state. I have heard earlier that, while amendment is in progress it is legal and ok to travel and get the stamping done. But not sure, if it is same case when H1 B Amendment is in RFE status.

Can you please let me know, if any of you have experienced this and if so, what are the consequences.

Kindly help only if you have experienced this kinda state or knew somebody who faced this scenario and tackled situation.

Spouse had H4-EAD and never used, going for H4 stamping, what should I fill for the following question?
Has anyone ever filed an immigrant petition on your behalf with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services? (Yes/No).

Do I need to mention my wife as immediate relatives here in my DS160? She is in dependent visa H4.

I am on a F1 student visa pursuing Master’s degree in USA and I will be graduating May 2018. I got a job offer last week and the employer is willing to sponsor H1B with my undergraduate degree and previous experience. Now If I get H1B, will I get into trouble completing my Master’s Program? Can I complete the Master’s program studying Part-Time while working full time on H1B visa?
