On September 26, 2007, we received this I485 APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR TO ADJUST STATUS, and mailed you a notice describing how we will process your case. Please follow any instructions on this notice. You will be notified by mail when a decision is made, or if the office needs something from you. If you move while this case is pending, please use our Change of Address online tool to update your case with your new address or contact our customer service center at 1-800-375-5283.
Is it just out of curiosity you inquired about your pending 485?
Do you have a good relationship with your former employer? If so, you can ask them and verify if they withdrew your I-140...in any case that should not matter as long as you have passed the 6 months period after applying I-485.

I think USCIS or DOL is the one which approves cases based on LS. They have a big database of people who used that....
How many of the ppl who r disgusted by LS have contributed anything to IV or its cause, but are very happy to file their 485. Dude, nobody is a Mahatma Gandhi here....
I have never met someone on LS... but I can assure you, if I ever find one of them, I will report USCIS and other authorities.. that is for sure.:mad:
While rushing to send our packages to USCIS on July2nd, we could not get our future employment letter signed and did not include in the package. But now I have the employment letter.
Experts, do you think I need re-file or wait out?
Anyone is in the same boat got their receipt#s or still waiting

If you hold work visa like H or L you may need to get the re-stamping upon the extension of your expired visa. H1 status and Visa stamping both are different things. H1 approval is the authorization to work in US, and Visa stamped on your passport is authorization to enter into USA.
Mostly H1 authorizations (form I-797) are issued for 3 years, so the Visa stamped on your passport reflects the date close to this expiry date, unless consulate gives you a Visa for duration less than the Date on your H1 form.
Once you get your visa extension, it comes with new I-94. But if you need to visit your home country or need to leave the US for any personal/business reason you have to get the stamping in your passport to re-enter the US. Before 911, one can send the passport and relevant documents to the U.S. State Department in Washington D.C. for renewal or re validation of the H1B visa stamp in the passport when the old visa has expired or within sixty (60) days of the H1B visa stamp expiration.
But in 2004, the re validation division discontinued the domestic visa re-validation. So now all the member who are looking for re-validation must go to home country or Canada/Mexico. But a recent (in 2007) U.S. Department of State (DOS) directive to U.S. consular posts requires consulting an electronic record for visa issuance in non immigrant categories H, L, O, P, and Q.
The new verification system requires that the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) send information on all approved petitions requiring visa issuance to the Kentucky Consular Center (KCC), which is part of the DOS. KCC scans and enters all pertinent information including Form I-129, employer support letter, and beneficiary's identification documents into PIMS. KCC also conducts database checks looking for fraud, violations, or other adverse history and records. A petition must be confirmed in PIMS by the U.S. consular post before issuance of the visa. The USCIS has not been transmitting petitions filed for change of status and extension of status to the KCC. Neither have all new petitions for consular processing been transmitted to KCC, resulting in delayed visa issuance to eligible applicants
Visa applicants whose information has not been entered into PIMS in a timely manner sometimes have to wait longer than the two days specified for visa issuance. There have been reports from individuals who have had to alter travel plans and arrangements to account for errors and delays in having all of their relevant information entered into PIMS
There are incidents where people struck up in the foreign country for 45-90 days due to this PIMS delays. So people need to go through lots of hassle including losing the job, could not pay the bills in time, lose your credit history, kids are not able to attend the school….
So this campaign is to bring back the re-validation within the US. I am sure there are lots of guys here with H1B and going through this dilemma. So all you people gather here and support this campaign. IV core is ready to support this, if there are enough people are getting affected.
If you or any of your friends are affected and got struck up in home/foreign country, please share your storey here. We strictly need only the first hand experience.
Based on the response and support, we can take it forward. We believe this one can be fixed through admin fix. All we need is enough support.
We need real people and real stories which can be presented to DOS officials and the media. I am sure we can fix this. so please come forward.
Note: If you are not interested in this campaign, please ignore this thread and move on. Please do not post anything irrelevant and do not provoke other members.
Desi companies - HIGHLY ADVISABLE TO USE UR OWN LAWYER AND DONT LINK LAWYER AND EMPLOYER - THEY HAVE TENDENCIES TO BECOME BUDDIES BASED ON BUSINESS PROMISES.
TAKE ALL DOCUMENTS FROM EMPLOYER AND GIVE TO LAWYER. U MAINTAIN UPPER HAND WITH LAWYER.
485 RFE IS COMMON FOR EMPLOYER- LAWYER COMBO OF DESI COMPANIES.
Lawyer needs money and employer needs prolongation.
With rules changing and with CIR reintroduction and with Durbin Grassley amendments - Desi companies will be having tough business in future - they will try to retain consultants in whatever way possible. So beware. These people are sweet in their talk - but they do everything opposite to what they talk.
This maybe applicable to non desi companies also - this dates becoming current is an acid test for employer's genuinity.
So be cautious - watchful and get things done in smart way. 180 days down the lane the story is different.
These are priceless advices :D :D :D

I hate to see you leaving, you need to fight for others. Who knows somebody close to you might get stuck in this mess. IF everybody leave just because they got what they need than its not fair. If you think IV has helped you in any way then each of us put some effort to help IV and its members.
Again congrates and hope you become more active in coming days.
Today is the next day of my GC freedom, and I am still on this forum, I didnot mean to leave the Forum, I still support IV with all my heart.......:D

Could you take some time out and let us know about your H1B delay in India?
I had gone to India for my father's 75th. b'day and planned to get my H-1 renewed. However, when I went to embassy, they said that I have to get clearance and will take one week. I said fine. One week became two weeks, then one month and then two months. I tried to contact embassy and other people, but of no use. My chief here in US, also tried. Meanwhile, my AP had arrive in US (we had filed for I485).( My wife had already got her H-1 approved and she had gone back.) She send me the AP. I contacted two of my lawyers; one said it is fine to come with AP, other said no. I send a letter to embassy asking about my travel with AP. They said, it is legal and not suggested!!!.
So after waiting for two month, I took a chance and came here on AP. At the airport, they took more than one and half hours to get be cleared, meanwhile my wife was waiting for me outside, not knowing what was happening. She was in tears when I came out finally.
After I came to US, I was informed from India that the US embassy had called and said that my name has been cleared and I should come to get my H1 visa stamped.!!!!!!!!

I have seen idiots like you who don't have an answer to questions and end up simply diluting the discussion with unrelated topics!
If you consider yourself tough and someone with credibility, then provide an answer to my previous post. Punk!
Again, you're the one whose hijacked the thread with your verbal mastur*tion.
LMAO@ "if you consider yourself tough" hahaha
so fighting anonymously over the internet in a forum is your test of being "tough" ?
Go back and do your IT coding or whatever you do.
I shall reiterate what i stated in my previous post and leave the childish internet bickering to you Mr internet "Sledgehammer" LOL
Hey! Maybe instead of donating to IV, we could pool some money and get Baba's prediction on Visa movement. I'm sure his prediction would be just as worthwhile/less as Charles Oppenheim's!!!;)

No difference from local bodyshoppers! Dont think they are great companies. You may say "you folks are frustrated with these companies". But this is the fact. Period.
They exploit US immigration rules and make use of L1 to keep their people long term at cliant place when they dont get enough H1. How is it exploiting US immigration rule? Will you crib the same if a Russian gaming company or UK based service company transfers their employers on L1? L1B is for intra-company transfer. Do you know how tough it is to get L1B? Try to go into Chennai consulate with L1B. Big companies are grilled like anything. How much does it cost to hire locally from US and train in all internal processes of SWITCH companies? It will be at least 6 months to become proficient. Can you expect to hire locally and train for 6 months in this competition? Where will the project go? It is not cost effective to get people on L1B and get them do the 'actual' work. Most of us work here as coordinators or client contacts. Not for doing actual work. And in that context there is no rule that is being exploited.

I am not saying all American companies are saints. The ones breaking the law should be punished accordingly. But facts are that Indian companies are among the biggest abusers of H-1Bs. Nothing wrong with Indian companies in general. But the ones breaking the law should be brought to justice, it's as simple as that.
If you are so sure about the law breakers and how people and companies are breaking immigration laws and you can always document and lodge compliaints to appropriate authorities. Dont always assume your perception is reality. There is something called due process when it comes to criminal prosecution in this country.
Outsourcing does not necessarily happen to India or some other country . Outsourcing can happen between companies in USA too. Even the essential services such as physical security , janitorial jobs are outsourced too.
The so called H1b reform does not protect people who are already in USA and whose green card petitions are pending for years. It tries put laws in place which says H1b employees can not perform services on behalf their companies for their clients.
One of the main complaints by people like you and guild of programmers is that these big consulting companies are using H1B program to gain knowledge in america and outsource later to India.
what do you mean by "BREAKING THE LAW BY ENTERING THE COUNTRY ON AN H-1B ON FALSE PREMISES"
No one here is opposing prosecuting the law breakers. You are the one who opined in other postings if enough number of people break law they should be legalized and given amnesty.
I think that there is no proper process or people are not implementing it properly.
There is no point in fuming over these issues. These have to be resolved and I think that if there are enough people having issues and deal with it, we must do something about it.
As the first step, it would be a great idea to write a list of issues that we all face collectively. The issue must be genuine and real without looking at the emotional angle or with attitude. Do we want to do something to fix these issues?
thanks for your efforts!
