My employer sent out my wife’s H-1B extension package along with my H-4 extension and H4-EAD extension packet that I filled out separately. All went in premium.
USCIS received the package on 29th May, and her H-1B was approved on 30th May. In 1 day flat!
I didnot receive any notification that they received my packet (which was included with hers) even though I filled out the G-1145.
However, I did receive notifications when only I filed my first H4 and H4-EAD back in November.
Although this may mean nothing, since there was nothing else I could do, I checked with my bank today and they said both my checks for I-539 and I-765 were cleared yesterday.
Sorry Anil, I was concerned that I didn’t get a text/email confirmation saying they received the package (now I know they did as my checks were cleared) but I have no receipt number that I can track the status of. I received a receipt number the last time.
What do you think should I do? I think my HR wouldn’t have received it either cos if they did, they’d have informed me.
Also, since I spent on I-539 and I-765 out of my pocket (both the times, COS and extension) and I continue to work for the same employer who had earlier filed my H-1Bs, is it fair to expect them to reimburse those costs as I work for them?
Are there any trends, practices elswhere that reflect this? Thank you!
