Working in the US on H1B, approved I-140 7 Years back in EB2. Now, there is an opportunity in my current company to manage 1 or 2 employees outside the US. And the same in the US. If the EB2 India dates don't have a good future after this year, I am thinking of going out of US work in managing capacity and coming back on L1A and trying EB1C.
1: With just 1 or 2 employees (senior resources e.g. VPs or AVPs in the financial domain ) reporting to me, how are the chances to get EB1C approved?
2: In your opinion, do you see EB2 India touching 2015 anytime this year, considering they have some spill over from last year? Or you suggest a plan for EB1C if the situation exists?
My PD - July 2014 EB2. I have a pending 485 and got EAD and AP.
I’m a manager in my current company and manage teams in India and the US.
I would like to know how to upgrade to EB1 as International Manager.
Is it required that I work outside the US for one year?
If I visit India and work for 3-4 months, can the accumulated time over 2-3 years be used for upgrading to EB1?
I would also like to know if we can renew EAD from India and keep the current 485 processes on track.
Who pays for the I-140 filing fee? Employer or Employee? Do federal regulations mandate payment by the employer? Who pays the attorney fees for the I-140 form per federal regulations? Is it mandatory to be paid by the employer? Who pays for the I-1485 filing fee per federal regulations? Employer or Employee? Any federal mandate I need to know? Who pays for I-485 attorney fees per federal regulations? Is anything mandated in federal regulations?
How does EB-1C portability work?
I also have a question about the EB1C portability of the priority date. Say, If I have I-140 approved under EB1C and have a particular priority date. For some reason, if I need to or want to change employers and I do not qualify for EB1C with other employers. My new employer can file I-140 under EB-2, or I can file EB-2 NIW myself. I have both options. The question is whether I can use the priority date of the earlier approved I-140 petition under EB1C to the new employer's EB-2 petition and file AOS.
I had few questions on EB1C filing;
- I am here in the US from 2015. Prior to that I was working as an Manger for the same firm in India.
- I was appointed as a Principal and then promoted as a Solution Manager last year. My role involves tasks during the entire duration of a given project and as part of the project I co-ordinate with the offshore teams assigned on the project for deliverable and to assign other tasks related to the project.<br>
1. As part of EB1C filing is there a mandatory requirement that a manager should be having dedicated team members<br>
2. If 1 is yes then can we consider the offshore team members assigned per project who would be supervised to the level of getting status of tasks, providing clarifications, training them etc.<br>
3. Is there a minimum number of reports required in the US and while I was in India, and if those reports have left the organization is that Ok?
There are two kinds of managers or executives - somebody who manages a function an essential and critical function of the corporation even though they don't manage any staff they would be considered a manager. No corporation can survive without a good pricing structure. It is a critical function of an organisation in the services business. There is another kind of manager which is a people manager, so if you are managing a team of twenty five software engineers they have to be professional employees. More...
