Hi,

I am in the process of legally changing my name through court order. Can you please let me know if I can - apply for H1b lottery with my current name - and if selected, use the new legal name and passport to submit H1b petition?

Please let me know. Appreciate the help.

Thank you Sreenath

Dear Sir,

My previous employer received my h1b approval in 2013. I received only email and not the i797 approval copy.

1. Can my new employer file new h1b under cap exempt? I don’t have the receipt number or the approval copy.

2.I raised foia request to get a copy of i129 approval. Not sure if I can be successful.

3.please let me know the options I have.

Need your inputs on the middle name - I have my first name mentioned in the passport with multiple spaces like Mahendra Kumar Chowdary since there is no middle name field in the Indian passport So now my employer planning to file H1B for me, and while registering for the H1B cap-subject, can I use names such as the first name as "Mahindra" and middle name as "Kumar Chowdary"? or Can I keep them all together in the first name as it mentioned in the passport? I want to avoid any confusion in the future on name split.
