    Hi Ron,

    My H1B amendment was received by USCIS on 7th December 2015. But still the case status is :"Case Was Received". In case of a family emergency and may have to travel to India in worst case. Will there be any implications if I travel and back to USA while petition has not be approved. My visa valid till 2018. Do I need to proceed with PP? Can you please suggest?

    Thanks for all the support in advance.

    Since it is an amendment, and not a request for additional time, you are safe making a trip abroad. It would be different if you were seeking an extension.

    Hi Ron,

    Thanks for the response.

    My case approval is waiting for beyond 10 months, so do I need to wait for one month / are you suggesting to go ahead with premium processing?.

    Please advise me.
