Thumbs up Thanks

Thanks for your reply.

I really dont care what my company policy says because as I look at it, it should be my decision whether to work on EAD or continue on H1-B. If they switch my work authorization without my knowledge, then it will be a classic case for lawsuit. Moreoever the policy is not documented anywhere.

In fact, if it is the same employer as your GC sponsor, you dont have to do anything.

The thing to remember is to extend your H1B if you do a H1B transfer so you dont have any issues at the time of transfer.

All this is assuming that your company policy can handle exceptions to the policy

Thanks!

I was taken to the back office where an agent entered information from my AP into the computer, stamped the AP and gave it back to me. No questions asked. Period. This was at the JFK airport in NY.

Parole is meant to grant entry to resume adjustment of status. Parole is not subject to employment, it is subject to a pending I-485.

If this is a hypothetical from you, then please shake these imaginations and live in peace and enjoy EAD and AP.

Too much thinking and too much analysis has caused this community to revert back to H1 lifestyle and they are not using EAD and AP - ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS why we were all so happy due to 485 filing.

What is the point of having an early 485 filed, if you are not going to use EAD and AP and be at mercy of consulates for restamping and be at mercy of employers who will need to sponsor you to hire you?
Logiclife,
Your message and signature says that you are still waiting for GC.
I was told that you got ur GC and left IV as orphan.
For some reason, I believed that and I'm kind of lost hope on the community.
This is not only my believe and whoever I knew they have the same feeling.
Hmm, something wrong, somehow we are trapped.

Default Paroled in without problems

I just wanted update this thread with my experience. Could be helpful to people like me who searched many forums frantically. I have 10th year h1b extension valid upto 2010. Instead of going for stamping at US consulate in India, I decided to use advance parole. Most troubling thing about my history was that I had one dwi (Driving While Intoxicated with Alcohol) offense. It is not a deportable offense. However, I was concerned that it would show up at port of entry and they could ask me to go back for consulate processing. I kept all my case related court documents handy. This is very important for anyone travelling with dwi or other serious charges against them.

Officer directed me to the secondary inspection. Another officer there entered my information into the computer and after making gazillion keystrokes, he stamped my advance parole document/I-94 with 1 year validity. I got up from the chair when he called my name, walked upto his counter and took my documents from him. NO QUESTIONS ASKED. NO BIOMETRICS.

Hope this helps others.

Can you please clarify, what details did you fill in following columns of I-94.
1) Name of the City where Visa was issued: ( Did you write Advance Parole ?)
2) Date of Visa Issued: ( Did you write Date of issuing Parole ?)

My wife has gone to India. She has her Passport with her two Parole Approvals and her new extended H-4 Approval. Does she need anything else other than these documenys ?
I will appreciate your Input for the above questions. Thanks

"1) Name of the City where Visa was issued: ( Did you write Advance Parole ?)"

--I put USA.

"2) Date of Visa Issued: ( Did you write Date of issuing Parole ?)"

--Did not write anything.


"My wife has gone to India. She has her Passport with her two Parole Approvals and her new extended H-4 Approval. Does she need anything else other than these documenys ? "

--That's about it. Doesn't need anything else. If she is not getting her visa stamped and planning on returning on AP, she should just give AP to the officer and say that she is seeking entry on AP. Officer would direct her for secondary process where she will get her AP/i-94 stamped.

I guess you gave a copy of your documents to your wife. Even if you did not, you shouldn't worry much. She should be ok.

Came back today on AP. Port EWR. Escorted to secondary inspection. "Purpose of your trip", "Are you working for the petitioning employer" and "Since when you have been working for them" were the questions.

Your parole document is not a visa. I left it blank.
