    Project to project, location to location, client to client. Many of our clients regularly relocate as their jobs demand.A reminder that whenever you change your home address, we ask that you contact our office so we can update our records.Most immigration forms require that we list your home address and we want to make sure that we have your correct address.

    In addition to updating our law firm, youíll need to report a change of address to the USCIS within 10 days of moving. You can update your address with the USCIS by filing a form AR-11 in hard copy or online. Please note that if you have an application currently pending with the USCIS you must update your address online to ensure the new address is assigned to your pending application.

    You can obtain the change of address form from the attorney or paralegal handling your case or on the USCIS website. Complete the information requested on the form, including present address, last address (most recent only), A number or registration (I-94) number, country of citizenship, date of birth, and your signature.

  3. MARCH 2014 VISA BULLETIN

    by , 02-10-2014 at 12:57 PM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    The Department of State has just released the February2013 Visa Bulletin. This is the fifth Visa Bulletin of the 2014 US Fiscal Year, which began on October 1, 2013.

    The All Other Countries EB-3 date jumped about 6 months. It has now moved an incredible 25 months in the last 90 days!

    The Philippine EB-3 numbers also progressed nicely, advancing about 3 months. This is the largest EB-3 jump in some time.

    The Chinese EB-2 and EB-3 continued to be flipped: the Chinese EB-2 is worse than the Chinese EB-3. Chinese nationals who are BE-2 may be able to file an EB-3. Chinese EB-3s should check with their attorneys to effect this change.The Chinese EB-3 mirrors the All Other EB-3.

    Unfortunately India EB-2 and India EB-3 remained basically stuck at the same dates from the December 2013 Visa Bulletin. India EB-3 moved one week.

    The full chart is at the end of the post.

    The Visa Bulletin also included some predictions on future progression:

    EMPLOYMENT-based categories (potential monthly movement)

    Employment First: Current

    Employment Second:
    Worldwide: Current
    China: Three to five weeks
    India: No forward movement
    Employment Third:
    Worldwide: This cut-off date has been advanced over four and one half years since last spring in an effort to generate new demand. After such a rapid advance of a cut-off date applicant demand for number use, particularly for adjustment of status cases, can be expected to increase significantly. Once such demand begins to materialize at a greater rate it could have a significant impact on this cut-off date situation. Little, if any forward movement of this cut-off date is likely during the next few months.
    China: Will remain at the worldwide date
    India: Little if any movement
    Mexico: Will remain at the worldwide date
    Philippines: Three to six weeks

  4. REMINDER: H-1B TELECONFERENCE FEB 12

    by , 02-06-2014 at 09:19 AM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    In anticipation of the H-1B cap filing date of April 1, 2014, MU Law will be holding a free teleconference for our clients on February 12, 2014 at 2PM / 11AM PT. Interested clients should email MUís Lauren Gramke, who can register you for the teleconference.

    Last year the H-1B cap was reached in the first week; we expect that the demand will be greater this year. It is imperative that all H-1B cap-subject Petitions are filled on April 1, 2014 in order to insure that the H-1B Petition qualifies under this yearís H-1B cap.

    H-1B cap-subject petitions include:
    * International students working on an EAD card under an OPT or CPT program after having attended a U.S. school

    * International employees working on a TN may need an H-1B filed for them in order for them to pursue a permanent residency (green card) case

    * Prospective international employees in another visa status e.g. H-4, L-2, J-1, F-1

    * H-1B workers with a cap exempt organization

    * Prospective international employees currently living abroad

    In addition to the H-1B cap discussion, MU lawyers will also provide an employment-based immigration legislation update.

  5. PRES. OBAMA FAILS TO PRESS ON IMMIGRATION . . . AND MAYBE THAT IS THE RIGHT MOVE

    by , 01-29-2014 at 04:41 PM (Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration)
    by Chris Musillo

    Last night, as expected, President Obama signaled the end of S.744 and the beginning of a new version of Comprehensive Immigration Reform in his State of the Union address. Less than 2 percent of the Presidentís lengthy speech was about immigration reform. While some pro-immigration forces may see this as a bad thing, there are others who think that this is the correct approach in the complex game of politics.

    The President and the Senate learned last year that nothing can get done without Republican-led House approval. Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) has taken some quiet steps signaling that he may be serious about immigration reform, including the hiring of Becky Tallent in December 2013. Ms. Tallent is a long-time advisor to Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) who has repeatedly made reform the United Statesí immigration laws a priority.

    By not aggressively pushing immigration reform in the State of the Union, the President is allowing Rep. Boehner the breathing room to line up House Republicans on the issue. The Republicans are not interested in handing the President a political win. They will only allow an immigration bill to move if they can get the press to report that an immigration bill is Republican driven. That would never have happened if the President had demanded that Congress put a bill on his desk.

    The odds are still long. Immigration reform is tough. But the Presidentís lack of discussion on the issue in last nightís address is yet another move in a long game.
