    In such trying times its awesome to find individuals in the media willing to lend a receptive ear to the hardships faced by all of us and write a wonderful news article on it. Its even more significant especially because when people who should be listening to our concerns and who have the ability to address these issues have turned deaf ears.

    She and other media personnel who have helped highlight this issue deserve at least a thank you note.

    Just my thoughts.....

    Dear Non-Indian Members,
    When Xiyun Yang talked to me yesterday, I did mention that there are more Chinese and Pakistanis and people from other countries
    She was very much interested in talking to them. ( I had mentioned this in my previous post, but would have got lost in the barrage of posts in the last few days)
    I would suggest, that non-Indians, please contact Xiyun @
    office phone: 202 334 6701

    Also, please leave a comment on her article in the washington post and mention which country you belong and how this is also your issue, as much as everybody else

    We definitely want to make this an universal issue and not just an Indian Issue

    Interviewed: Jan 2 2008
    VO said visa approved, will receive in 7 days
    Jan 18: received a call from the consulate, said the petition number on the application is incorrect, and I need to resubmit the approval notice with fresh DS 156/157 at the Bangalore VFS drop box.

    Has anyone else been through the same situation?

    I checked a copy of the original DS-156/157, and there was no place to enter receipt number. The only place I could see was where the VFS pre-screening guys enter this number manually (first page DS 156 top right corner).

    If this is due to their mistake, I will be very angry and will convey this to the consulate general.

    You have chance of winning lawsuit if they reject you just based on immigration status. But in USA the employment is at will basis. Both employer and employee can take that option. Last year when I got offer letter that was specified in first page that this employment is at will basis. Lawsuits are more expensive. Generally lawyers will share the benefits of compensation if they take the case freely

    now ford, gm, capitalone and I'll post mine when i hear about the explanation from legal.

    i dont know if u can sue without much written proof, or if they refused to interview you. but if you do have an interview etc., and some written proof, we may have something

    a class action lawsuit ? if a lawsuit is expensive i am sure there are some lawyers who take on cases either probono or we all pool in our money and do something...

    You are right, with second set of application I just filed 485, did not apply for EAD and AP.

    every lawyer who has OKed multiple 485s has specifically asked us to apply for EAD/AP on only one of the applications.

    EB3 Porting could use up to 8K though, and new filing could be 2K
    and EB2 I/C pre-07/2007 still have about 34K at the beginning of oct/2010
    So it is even at most...

    There are lots of uncertain
    1. EB1 is now the biggest uncertainty
    2. EB2 ROW
    3. Porting
    But EB1 and Eb2 ROW, EB2 I/c new fling (ppl who missed 07/2007 w/ PD before 07/2007) have to file in May to get it approved by Sept as processing time is 4 month.
    So After May, from June to August, it is all spill over game for EB2 I/C
    That is why i guess Charles is saying the trend is now, and will start use the numbers in May

    If 44k is the available number for EB2 I & C then the PD will move upto Jun 2008 with out any doubt. Even with the porting of EB3 to EB2 is accounted for.

    With all due sympathies, this is one of the funniest posts I have read in a long time....It helps to lighten up a bit every now and then considering we are all in this for a long haul...

    Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I went through London back in 2004 and my experience was completely different. I went to the NYC consulate to get my TV for $50, yes just $50 and the whole paper work etc was done in less than 30min and I had to go back after 2 hours to collect my passport with a 1 year multiple entry stamped on it.

    My point being, I think they have changed a lot of rules and made it more stringent after the recent security threats etc.

    Getting a GC soon is our saviour

    I had the misfortune of travelling thru London in December on my way to Mumbai. After I purchased my tickets, I learnt that I need a transit visa (TV) for UK. (Who is going to tell them (UK) that they are no longer the center of attraction esp. if you have lived and worked in US). Anyway, as per the rules, you need a transit visa if you don�t have a valid US visa. (Note: If you have AP, and don�t have a valid visa, you still need a TV).

    I went to their site and did all the research to get a TV. Good god Heavens! Has anyone filled out their painful form for a TV? Besides asking the usual details, they get extremely nosy. They want to know each and everything about you. Where you work, what money do you make, name of your wife, kids and their citizenship status, name of your father and mother and where they were born, their birth date, how much money you have and where the money is (stocks, bonds, CDS) etc. etc. While filling up the form I realized that, even my future father in law did not pose so many probing questions to me. (Please note: I don�t mind answering these silly questions for a regular visa, but for the damn TV, it is certainly overkill).

    Anyway to cut the long story short. The regular cost of TV is/was $92. However, when I filled up the application form they were asking for $184. (The satisfaction of getting a good deal on the tickets was quickly evaporating). I assumed I must have made a mistake in thinking the cost to be $92 and reluctantly paid $184. Next it was time to fill the application for my wife and answer the idiotic questions again. You should have seen the �I will kill you right now� look on my wife�s face after I woke her up in the middle of night and asked details about her parents. After I filled up the form, to my surprise, now they were asking $274 for visa fees. It was already 2:00 am and I have no choice but to painfully enter my credit card details, hoping that they would realize the mistake in their recon process and would reimburse the difference. (Of course, I was only dreaming).

    It is now almost the end of January and I have still now received any money from them. I have tried sending several email to the emb(ass)y, but none of their emails work. I get bounced email for all the emails that I have used. I have tried calling them and left messages and no one has called back. I have send emails to my credit card company and the people who processed the payment and none of them have been able to help me. There is a way to talk to someone in the emb(ass)y, but you need to dial a 900 number, which BTW costs $2.49 per minute. Throwing good money after bad is not an option.

    I just wanted to share this experience with you and remind you of the pain ahead, if you are travelling thru UK and don�t have a valid US visa. Personally, even if they had charged me the regular $92, I will still use other options to travel next time. The amount of time wasted in filling the crappy application form, going to NY, (starting Dec doing your finger prints) is simply too much to handle. Visiting your motherland/fatherland is a very special occasion and all these intermediate steps certainly water down the �good feeling� that you experience during the days leading to your trip.

    I haven�t given up my quest for a refund, but now, not only I want my money back I would like to bring back home the Koh-i-noor too.

    I had the same issue...
    Here is the short version of how it unfolded. I've seen some quick responses from USCIS.

    9/15/2010 - USCIS email indicating that cards mailed for both me and spouse
    9/16/2010 - Spouse received card
    9/21/2010 - Got email (LUD) that my card returned undelivered.
    9/22/2010 - Called customer service updated the address
    9/23/2010 - Got my card in mail (wrapped in an usps priority envelope) with tracking number

    I was pleasantly surprised with the fastness of USCIS.



    My attorney's office contacted USCIS and was told that USCIS has current address on system :cool: They told that since the case is waiting for RFE it must have happend by mistake :confused:

    I would go for medical test again just because of PPD test. According my civil surgeons office, PPD test should be with in 6 month when u file 485 otherwise you may get rfe for fresh ppd. Seems these days CIS is very particular about TB test.

    Yes, I do agree that we should have some sense of personal responsibility and that is why the middle way is to rent out the house (probably at a bit lower price than your monthly mortgage) and pay the difference from your pocket - if you have to absolutely move out from the house. But, can somebody answer my question above..........why is the same house (not even a brick changed) being appraised at around 100k lower than it was done 2 years back, by the same bank??

    Your posts are enlightening and breath of fresh air in an otherwise non-nonsensical forum discussion. Although people would want to, but talk about ethics and moral is not forbidden, not yet at least.
    The very people tossing aside ethics are the ones who used good faith based credit system. Now suddenly it is all Capitalism, Greed, Bank's and Lender's fault. Whatever happen to personal responsibility ?

    All those suggesting foreclosure are forgetting one thing: The pendulum has shifted and the same capitalism that supported the reckless credit is now going to choke it off. You don't want to be on the wrong side twice !!!! The thing about free markets is they adjust to new realities long before people do.Before you know it the easy walking away (or foreclosure) might become the biggest mistake while buying house might be distant second.

    In the meanwhile please don't shoot the messenger aka sledge_hammer. If you read his posts he has given the best advice with a good dose of much needed reality and sound language. If you are hostile towards him you are simply in denial. The longer you stay there the harder it will be to cope with the new realities.

    Punjabi77, good luck to you buddy. This will pass too, don't ruin everything for $20K. You will earn it back but you can't undo foreclosure and whatever comes with it in terms of personal memory, your credit and things in future that you can't foresee now. Do the right thing it will only make you stronger and someday you will be able to tell your kid that you did the right thing in the face of adversity and eventually not only survived it but thrived out of it.

    Sorry to hear that. Hope that will not effect your I-485 application processing.

    For me, I have not seen any status change to my 140. After a series of LUDs to both 485 and 140 at last today I see my 485 status has changed. It says RFE sent. Good that I have not received any NOID or Denial. This is the best case scenario that I was hoping for. I have yet to receive the RFE to see the actual cause. But hoping this is due to 140 withdrawal. I thank the IO who is working on my case as he/she is quite knowledgeable and issued a RFE not NOID or denial.

    So people please keep sending letters.

    Well this is what I understand - difference between RFE and NOID
    If it is an RFE - you can withdraw your 485 petition and apply for a new 485 petition (if you are current) and that is not possible in NOID. So if you are retrogressed - it is almost the same.

    Also remember that technically both are same - some IOs update status message to "Request sent ..." some do not. When I got to know something happened to my 140 and 485 I called customer service and they explained that "We have sent letter requesting information, so please do not panic" when I received the letter it was NOID.

    Good luck, atleast you got a good IO.

    Lets keep sending letters until we stop seeing denials and start seeing posts like this

    We could also do a signature/petition campaign that would focus on 'American Citizens' supporting our effort. We should aim at getting a lot of signatures. Afterall there have to be hundreds of thousands of formerly H1B holders who are citizens now; at least they would support our effort.
    Excellent idea JBR. Why don't you create a letter template and put it in IV. If we have the facility to sign electronically, it will be nice. Later, it can be sent electronically to all Congress Members. Let us try to create a slogan for our campaign. Any IV member can shed their ideas on this.
    Is PAPPU or any IV Core members following this thread?. PAPPU we need your involvement in this and make this as another IV campaign immediately...

    Hi All,

    Its been astonishing journey, came to US in 2000 June, saw downfall of .coms followed by Housing bubble burst, than 911 , than Economical challenges, Job losses, etc.... the irony list are/were endless. Hope of GC was next to impossible.

    Following were the steps to miracle :

    - Filed Labor in 2005 Dec, got denied due to lawyers mistake:mad:
    - Refiled the same application and Got approved in March 2006:D
    - Applied I-140, paid extra for premium but it took more than 4 months to approve.:mad:
    - Fight with employer, left company overnite, guess when ?(2 weeks before July Fiasco :mad:)
    - Refilled labor in Jan 2008, Got approved in March 2008
    - RFE on previously approved I-140
    - Convinced lawyers to file application for I-140 , requesting PD recapturing.
    - Got I-140 Approval in Aug 2008
    - Filed I-485 in Aug 2008
    - FP in Oct 2008
    - RFE in Aug 2009

    - Contacted Congressman, it was helpful as got to know the exact situation.
    - Took infopass 2 times
    - Not sure if this helped or not but called 1-800 number and spoke with level 2 officer and she hinted that I may not have to wait that long ?

    - Approval in Sep 2010

    Thanks to IV, it was immensely helpful.

    All of you guys are smart ,highly skilled immigrants.

    Let me make one thing clear. Govt has defined EB categories : EB1 , Eb2 and EB3 . based on level of exp and education etc..

    Now that your employer has applied for you in Eb3 even though you were qualified under Eb1 or Eb2 then govt can't do any thing. Like if you are making 70k with 5 years exp and which is ok as per your labor cert of H1b then govt cannot do any thing . Even though u r less paid compare to market.

    same thing here.. If you think you can qualify for Eb2 and your employer want to apply as EB2 . It should not be issue. You are most welcome to do so. But I see common ground as HR 5882. Why dont we work hard and hard to get HR 5882 pass. One of my friend has MS from USA from top uni. with 18 years of exp from India and 3 years of exp in big 5 from USA. Still his recent employer applied under Eb3 . Should he complained to govt ???
    He left current employer and found another who willing to apply under Eb2.

    Unless Eb1 current Eb2 should not get any spill over same way unless Eb2 current Eb3 should not get Spill over. No matter what way you fight govt wont agree to give high priority to Eb3 compare to Eb1 or Eb2 . as from VDLRAO's post Eb2 does not need much visa to become current so if we get recaptured visa then eb2 will be current and Eb3 will get most of visa out of those recaptured visa.

    CALL CALL CALL CALL unless you win.. Dont need to fight here which is not going to work out for any one.

    EB3 will not any visa from recapture bcoz it will go to EB2 first. EB2 line is not going to clear in next 10 years bcoz nowadays everybody applies in EB2 and as they move VB forward for EB2, more and more people apply for AOS and it never ends.

    So EB3 won't be benefited by recapture unless there is a clause specifically for EB3 allotment out of that recapture

    You guys need to learn the basic rules of EB visa allocation

    1) All EB categories need to worry about current backlog. EB3 India only need to worry about current backlog and future backlog. If more people file visa in 2 years, EB3-India will be in hot soup.

    2) Eb3 India is at the bottom of the food chain. It will get visa only after every other category is current.

    EB3 I getting spill over numbers depends on many factors. If atleast one factor goes wrong then EB3I will be in soup again.

    When dates become current lots of people with approved 140 will file 485 and do you know who will be affected most? EB3 India

    When you do your calculation add this on top of your equation.
