Question
hi
my name is Mausam Gautam  and i am working in software firm India.My parents filed my petition in Jan 2002 and they are greencard holder
so can i got H1B now?.
is there any problem with my old petition ?
thanks in advance

Answer
Hi,

The earlier petition by your parents will not interfere with issuance of H-1B visa. Therefore, you can enter the U.S. on H-1B visa status, and when a visa becomes available from your parents filing, you can file for adjustment of status in the U.S., but in the meantime you can be in the U.S. in H-1B visa status. H-1B visa status allows for intention to immigrate to the U.S., so you should be issued the visa at the U.S. Consulate without any problems.
