Yes, approved H1 b but denied status transfer I guess.
The reason being, first of all the immigration officer made a mistake when asking for evidence, so when the lawyer & I sent them info about why the Immigration officer was mistaken, then they they sent us a letter saying that there was a delay in filing the application by 2 wks, this was not an issue at all when they asked for evidence !!! too sad...
The lawyer got busy or may be forgot to file on time, very tragic in a way...
I have asked the lawyer to file for appeal given the circumstance of catastrophe, however the lawyer has not filed yet.
I am hoping to file for appeal once TPS is approved, so that there will be no unlawful presence for me,
New employer is great, wants to sponsor Green card.
My last visa was valid until about one year ago in 2014 and until recently I was on authorized stay due to a long time for them to approve, however, now that they have denied the visa transfer, I guess I am out of status .
One of the things I wanted to ask is if there anything special that needs to be done while filing for tps apart from regular processing ? I am thinking about writing about my circumstance of overstay
And in case, I get tps, I may be barred from coming back for several years once tps expires. Can someone suggest what would be the best way to move forward?
