    I was a big fan of PhotoSig when I discovered it about a year ago.. I loved to look through others photos and also share some to have critiqued.. Here's my old user page over there:

    My photosig page (http://www.photosig.com/go/users/userphotos?id=38138)

    I haven't updated this in about a year. I'd love to see something like that over here.. I just haven't found the galleries as easy to look through as I did over there.. I actually quit going there when they changed the system and the overkill of nudes that were just distasteful.

    If every member critiques 5 photos a week, in no time, all photos will have comments.

    I don't know about you, but I love comments, good or bad about my photos...

    many help me to focus efforts and make better images...

    I applied for my EAD in the last week of Nov 10. I got mine in the first week of Jan 11.

    For the question of 'if she can leave while USCIS is processing her AP', I am not sure...

    My PD is Jul 31, 2006 and I am going to add my wife to the application on June 1st. She is on H-4 right now.

    How long does it take to get the AP and EAD? Can she leave the country without the AP.

    To complicate things further, cloture on 9-11 responders failed by 57-42. Republicans are not willing to let anything go till Tax cuts bill is undertaken.

    The breaking news is the House Democrats have decided not to undertake Tax cut bill in the House, meaning the new tax cut deal announced by the President will not hold good anymore.

    Its anybody's guess what will happen next. Key leaders from both sides will go behind closed doors to figure out how to make it happen.

    Please standby for further updates.

    my friends have multiple experiences, I went through Lufthansa, had no problem. My friend was telling me in France you do require, they wont let you board the flight if you dont have transit! Even if you check the consulate, the airlines have no clue. Asian countries like Singapore, absolutely no problem, direct non stop flights no problem either.

    Traveling for the 1st time on AP (used H1 stamp previously, now I am on ead), wanted to know how the experience at SFO is. Do they always send you for secondary inspection? Anything else to know beforehand?

    here's the list of docs I have from earlier post:
    - All copies of AP
    - EAD
    - Passport, of course
    - 485 receipt notice (Good to carry)
    - 140 approval notice (Good to carry)
    - Labor approval notice (Good to carry)
    - Company identification card/badge (Good to carry)
    - Current employment verification letter (Good to carry, I never did and I was okay)
    - Old stamped APs, if you have used AP to travel in the past (Good to carry)

    anything else?

    Also, when leaving Bangalore, any issues if you only have an AP and no H1 stamping?

    my fiancee has F-1 visa too, but we are getting married next month so excited. should i ask my employer to apply for us the same time?

    Yes, if she wants to change from F-1. She might want to stay in F-1 status as long as she can, especially since she can get work authorization.

    i don't know how is this work, and how much is the f-1 to h-4 status change costs.

    That depends on the lawyer, Filing fees are $300

    if i get denied, she will be denied too

    but if she gets denied, will i get denied?

    No, not necessarily

    in other word, is filing both visa same time affect the chance of getting approved?

    I've done thousands of H-1B and H-4 cases filed together. It's very common.

    u guys know the odds of getting approved on h1b from non profit organization these days?

    If the job meets the H-1B criteria, and you do also, you should be fine.

    How do we know if our case is pre-adjudicated or nor, is it only a guess based on PD, that a case may pre-adjudicated.
    Today, I called uscis, and asked if my case is pre-adjudicated or not. I was told that the rep does not have access to my personal info.

    PD - July 2004-EB2
    I 485 RD - Aug 17, 2007 and ND - Oct 16, 2007
    Attended interview at the local uscis on June 25th, 2009
    Spouse alone second FP on July 5th , 2009


    There was an article that came out and here is the link to it: TSC-NSC update (http://imminfo.com/News/2009-AILA/TSC-NSC_update.html)

    As the way I understood it, even your PD is not current, they are starting to pre-adjudicate some cases so that the Visa Center would know more or less how many visas are needed and how big the backlog is. This effort tries to eliminate unused visas and utilize most of it. So the way I see it is, USCIS pre-adjudicates cases, then those who are "pre-approve" will be sorted on a different place maybe database which will be submitted to the Visa Center. Now, once your PD comes (Visa Center is the one responsible for monthly Visa Bulletin), Visa Center will tell USCIS that this case is ok, USCIS then sends you your GC.

    I was going through this forum and I have read some instances where the officer on the phone will or will not tell you if your case is pre-approve. So what they do is call back again and hoping that officer will divulge such information to you.

    Thank you very much for the quick reply!
    I just got some feedback from my employer.

    Is it possible for my employer to file for my H1b, and I can find another lawyer on my own to file for my Wife's H4? I think my employer isn't really willing to file for my wife from his tone....

    he said he will file it next month, but will petition for my H1b to validate in June next year (when my OPT ends, my H1b will validate the next day). in this case, when can i start the petition for my wife if she is in F1 after i got my H1b 3, 4 months from now(but won't be validated till June next year)?

    I am filing for her F-2 next month, I seriously doubt by the time i file for her H4, her F-2 will be in the mail. should i wait for the F-2 to be approved then start petition for H4?

    Thank you so much again, you have been a really helpful attorney.

    I have read in this forum frequent questions about this - legality/enforceability of noncompete clause. Here's a recent court decision from Kansas. It talks about physician practices. No idea if it is applicable to other professions. But the four factors cited in the decision seem relevant.

    Interestingly, it talks about 8 states -- Alabama, California, Colorado, Delaware, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Tennessee and Texas -- that have been known to outlaw or significantly restrict such clauses.

    Please take it for whatever it's worth.

    Kansas court enforces noncompete clause
    The court looked at a number of factors in weighing the contract's impact on the doctor, the employer and patient care.

    By Amy Lynn Sorrel, AMNews staff. Aug. 4, 2008.

    A Kansas appeals court recently affirmed the enforceability of noncompete clauses in a ruling that puts the spotlight on issues that can arise in drafting or signing the employment contracts.

    Kansas is among a majority of states that consider noncompete clauses legal, with varying case law or statutes as to when and how the provisions can be used. Eight states -- Alabama, California, Colorado, Delaware, Massachusetts, North Dakota, Tennessee and Texas -- have been known to outlaw or significantly restrict such clauses.

    In June, the Kansas Court of Appeals upheld a contract that restricted a family physician from practicing for three years in the same county as the group she left unless she paid the clinic 25% of her earnings during those three years after her termination.

    In its decision, the court analyzed four factors to determine the validity of the contract provision. The court looked at whether the restrictive covenant:

    * Protected a legitimate business interest of the employer.
    * Created an undue burden on the employee.
    * Harmed the public welfare.
    * Contained time and geographic limitations that were reasonable.

    In upholding the noncompete clause, the court found that Wichita Clinic PA had a legitimate interest in protecting its patient base and the investment it made in establishing the practice of Michelle M. Louis, DO, when she joined the group in 1991. The court said the contract did not unfairly restrict competition or patient access because Dr. Louis had the option to continue practicing in the area, where other family physicians were available.

    Gary M. Austerman, Dr. Louis' attorney, said the court essentially ruled that "a contract is a contract" while giving "short shrift" to other concerns, including patient care. Dr. Louis plans to petition the Kansas Supreme Court to take her case.
    8 states outlaw or significantly restrict noncompete clauses.

    "A doctor's right to practice and continue her relationship with her patients in this case is greater than the employer's right to restrain that right," Austerman said. "Patient choice is affected any time you say you can't take care of patients just because of a business relationship."

    Austerman said Wichita Clinic -- a practice of nearly 200 multispecialty physicians -- was not harmed by Dr. Louis' departure, and the contract was aimed at protecting itself from competition rather than protecting patient care. He argued that the 25% damages clause imposed an arbitrary penalty on Dr. Louis and was not intended to apply to the income she would make when she left the clinic in 2004.

    AMA policy states that covenants not to compete "restrict competition, disrupt continuity of care and potentially deprive the public of medical services." The AMA discourages any agreement that restricts the right of a physician to practice medicine and considers noncompete clauses unethical if they are excessive in scope.
    Striking a balance

    Gary L. Ayers, an attorney for Wichita Clinic, said the group's contract struck an appropriate balance.

    He said the clinic hired Dr. Louis after she completed her residency and helped set up her practice with an existing source of patient contacts and referrals, and by covering administrative and overhead costs. But if doctors decide to leave and take a portion of their patients with them, the group would lose out financially without some reimbursement arrangement, Ayers said. As a result, patient care would suffer.

    Restrictive covenants "allow groups to protect their patient base and in turn give them the ability to grow the practice to provide a vast array of patient services," Ayers said.

    Doctors on either side of the negotiating table should consult legal counsel to know where their state stands on enforcing noncompete provisions, said Richard H. Sanders, a Chicago-based health care lawyer with Vedder Price.

    Employers drafting contracts should make sure time and distance limitations are reasonable and reflect where the practice draws its patient base from, he said. On the flip side, individual doctors should not hesitate to negotiate and ask for a buyout clause or a carve-out leaving a particular geographic territory open.

    Jerry Slaughter, executive director of the Kansas Medical Society, warned that doctors should take the contracts seriously. The medical society was not involved in the Wichita Clinic case.

    "If properly constructed, [restrictive covenants] are legal and binding, so it's really about the parties going into it understanding it's a contract."

    Case at a glance

    Was a noncompete clause in a doctor's employment contract enforceable?

    A Kansas appeals court said yes.

    Impact: Some individual physicians say the provisions restrict their rights to practice in any given area and infringe on patients' rights to choose a doctor. Physicians on the medical group side say the contracts help protect the investment a practice makes in new doctors and its existing business, which, in turn, helps maintain access to care.

    Yes, rates may be different if you are H-1B Vs GC holder. I had taken insurance through an agent recently and he suggested to go for a combination (Universal Life + Term). ULI works differently, its like a savings account, meaning you can always take the premium you paid after 10 or 20 or whatever period you choose (with interest rate). Their interest rates are same as ING or HSBC. Ever wonder how much money we are wasting with Term over a period of 20 or 30 years?

    you are screwed, yes seriously

    Why did u change employer, w/o getting any info about filing with ne wemployer befor ahead.

    If you file in 2008 (No matter whetehr it is Eb2 or Eb3), as per present situation u can forget for next 10 + years.

    I feel this may not be true.

    Do you have any evidence for your information or can you show any documentation from USCIS supporting your comments.

    My son is a US citizen/passport holder and we are planning on applying for a PIO for him at the SFO consulate. I have the following questions on how he could use the PIO card

    1. How can he use the PIO card to enter and exit India?
    a. Does he simply show the PIO card, US passport to enter and exit India?
    2. Incase if the PIO card processing takes a lot of time I know that he can apply for visa. I was wondering anyone has experience on how visa could be applied if PIO processing takes a long time at the SFO consulate.
    a. Do they return the PIO application and its supporting documents before visa could be applied?
    b. Should a new visa application+visa supporting documents need to be resent for getting a Indian visa?

    Hi, Guys:

    My old H-1b will expire on June 30 2007. My employer has applied the new H-1b extension, but it is still pending. I am planning to go back to my country this summer and try to apply for H-1 visa in US embassy in early June. My question is whether I can apply for H-1 visa using the old one (expire on June 30) while the new one is pending. How long will be my H-1 visa valid (usually 3-month in my country)? Will I get 3-month or till the expirating date(June 30)? Can I come back to US? Many thanks.

    Since your current extn application is still pending, your new visa stamp would bear the june30 date, as far as I know. Talk to an attorney.
