My situation here:
-Entered US with F1, after graduation H1B for 3 years for my former employer (a big consulting firm), H1B extension was approved until 2021 before I transferred to my current firm
-Left my former company on 8/10/2018 and started a new job in another consulting firm on 8/13/2018 (started working only after the receipt from USCIS was received)
-H1B transfer received RFE and then was DENIED on 11/6 and the lawyer received the mail denial notice on 11/16, former company has submitted revoke
-My gf (USC) and I decided to get married on 11/24, I plan to wait until
My current firm told me they would make sure to do right by me (refile, appeal, may have me work in another office outside of US). But I don't really trust their contracted law firm as they were not very professional and very unresponsive during the H1B transfer process.
I have hired my own lawyer and planning to file the GC application on 11/26 right after we get the marriage license. I have read a lot online and people submit a lot of evidence for a bona fide marriage. However, my lawyer told me that when we submit the adjustment of status package we do not need to provide joint documents. We will provide those for our interview in the future. We only need to establish that I qualify for submission and adjudication of your application. As such, we only need to include documents to establish I 1) entered the U.S. lawfully; 2) my gf is a U.S. Citizen; 3) the 2 of us are now legally married; 4) that I will not be a financial burden to the U.S. Govt. My lawyer said there's no need to include pictures and trips we took together for the filing.
-Does anyone have the same experience with me? USCIS is still reviewing the revoke application online so I guess i will have a 60 day grace period?
-Should I still have my current firm refile my H1B? Can I stay in the country while they refile? Not sure which way is faster compared to getting an EAD thru GC
-Should I file whatever bona fide evidence I have for GC? (e.g., utility bills under same address, joint checking account (opened yesterday), joint car insurance and etc)
Thanks so much!
