    Hey Guys,

    I guess in respect to I am in somewhat of a lucky position in some aspects and not in others....I am wondering if anyone knows the most recent status of the PPIA, it is something close to heart as my partner is a UK foreign national over here in the US.....

    Although he holds an H1B, becuase of the sept 11th problems he lost his job and now remains here in the US but is not employed. We have tried to get answers on how is status holds up after loosing his job...We don't believe that the employer has filed with the INS that he has lost his job...we have heard many answers in responce to the questions "how long does he have to find a new job before becomming out of status" we heard 10 days from some, but when we contacted the INS they said that area of the law is somewhat "grey" and there is no definative time period for him to find another job...Anyone here no more of a correct definitive answer?

    Does the PPIA have much chance of gaining ground in this session of congress (108th) I hear that LGIRTF is planning to introduce it to the senate in late Feb..and that the HRC has added the PPIA to their scoring list for senators and congressmen....

    Anyways any input would be much appreciated....Does my partner have any other options? AOS or anything like that? His current EAD is still valid and will be till 2004.....

    Thanks...

    He normally has 30 days to either get H1B transfer Or to change to any other non immigrant status.
    He can find another sponsor who can transfer his H1b.

    Dear Mohan,

    Do you know any place that specialise in finding new sponsors for H1B people? He is a chemist and has very specialized qualifications and experience....

    Thanks

    Thank you Mohan for you're advise...You say 30 days to change sponsors, we have heard 10. The INS themselves said the law is grey in that area and the time frame is not specific, where did you learn of the 30 day period?

    Thanks

    If he is a specialized chemist, has he considered an extraordinary ability petition or national interest waiver?

    The law says that he has a reasonable time to leave the U.S. after he loses the H-1B sponsor. Some people interpret this as a grace period in which to find new employment and status. It's not, but rumor has spread it as though. This is why you will not get a definite answer. There is not one.

    What is your status? Could you afford him some type of immigration benefit or is there a relative that could?

    Hi MMorales,

    Thanks for that input...

    Regarding the national interest waiver you mentioned, I thought that this applied to physicians? He is a chemist not a medical doctor...Would this still apply? His area of specialty is drug discovery....

    My status is USC...I was born here in the US...What kind of immigration benifit could I extend to him? We are both male and so obviously it is hard as the law currently does not recognise same sex partnerships....Unfortunatley most of his family lives in the UK his only relative that lives here is a 2nd cousin...but I think that is not close enough in terms of family....Any ideas would be most appreciated..

    Thanks
