Q1. I came to USA on a tourist visa, got married and filed I-130, been two years now. But we later found that we were suppose to file an adjustment of status together with the i-130. But I have overstayed. Can we still file the i-1485? My husband is a US citizen.

Q2. I am working on H1B and my I140 is approved 7 months ago. Now I have got three job offers and they are ready to do my H1B transfer. Is it ok to accept two job offers simultaneously and start H-1B transfer process with both of them and join one of the companies? Is it allowed?

Q3. Can you continue to work on H1 for existing employer if you enter US on AP or you must switch to GC EAD?

Q4. I am currently on an H-1B and have pending 131, 765 and 485 applications - when is the earliest I can travel out of country?

Q5. Can beneficiaries (applicants) financially sponsor themselves in affidavit of supports?

Q6. If I have a current I485 pending in Eb3 category . Can I file one more I485 in Eb2 category which I am current and have valid 140?
