Immigration Issues/Various Questions


Dear Mr.Krishnan,

I have few questions:

(1) what are the possible reason(s) to get RFEs on pending I-485 ?
(2) Can I stay out of US, while my I-485 is pending ?? if yes, than for how long ??
(3) I am working on EAD using AC21 portability ? can I open my LLC and work for it ??



1) There are too many of them to list.
2) You can stay out of the US as long as your Advance Parole is valid. I would suggest that you check the processing times to return prior to period where your case may get approved.
3) Sure you can work on your own but you need to satisfy the AC21 portability rules such as similar occupation....
