  • I am in F-1 status and moving from a bachelor’s program to a master’s program. Do I need to file an F-1 extension or amendment?  Answer
  • I am in L1B status and have been offered a promotion to a managerial position. My employer is filing an amendment to move me to L1A status. Can I start working in the L1A position based on the receipt, or do I have to wait for the petition to be approved?  Answer
  • I was in H-4 status based on my father’s H1B. I have been studying in university and, shortly before I turned 21, I filed an application to change to F-1 status. That application is still pending, and it appears I may graduate before my F-1 is approved. Can I transfer to a master’s program based on the pending F-1 change of status application?  Answer
