Thread: ASYLUM AND H-1B - CHANGE OF STATUS

  1. #1
    CAN A PERSON WITH A PENDING ASYLUM APPLICATION APPLY FOR AN H-1B PETITION AND A CHANGE OF STATUS??? THE B-2 STATUS EXPIRED IN SEPTEMBER 2004 AND THE LAWYER TOLD ME IT WAS NOT NECESSARY TO DO EXTENSION OF B-2 STATUS. HOWEVER, I JUST FOUND OUT THAT IF THE ASYLUM IS DENIED YOU ARE ALLOWED TO GO BACK TO YOUR PREVIOUS STATUS AS LONG AS YOU MAINTAINED VALID STATUS PRIOR TO THE APPLICATION AND IT HAS NOT EXPIRED. I HAVE A JOB OFFER FOR AN H-1B AND EVEN FOR A LABOR CERTIFICATION. I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST FOR A CHANGE OF STATUS ON THE H-1B PETITION. IS THIS POSSIBLE OR DO I HAVE TO GO ABROAD TO GET THE VISA. I AM AFRAID THAT IF GO TO THE CONSULATE IN MY HOME COUNTRY OR ANY OTHER FOR THAT MATTER, THEY WILL NOT GIVE THE H-1B WHEN THEY FIND OUT THAT I HAVE AN ASYLUM APPLICATION PENDING. THE ASYLUM HEARING IS SCHEDULED FOR MAY. PLEASE HELP.
