***** Email from Basak on 12/14/2014
I would like to first thank you very much for your professional website, it is immensely helpful.
I came to US in 2008 to pursue PhD in Chemical engineering. I graduated in 2012 and currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at a University in New York State. My employer is willing to sponsor me for Green card, but I am not sure if I can qualify for EB1-Outstanding Researcher category.
The problem is that my appointment here expires in August 2015, and I am not sure if I can get my green card by then. One more issue is that I have only 3 published papers, and quite a few conference presentations. I would like to take your
suggestion before I proceed further. I would really appreciate if you can go through my resume that is attached.

I am currently employed by a U.S. government contractor working directly at a federal aviation administration's research and development laboratory. The company has a contract for 5 years. I have been with company for more than 3 years now. I have EB-2 NIW I-140 approval, but I can not file I-485 because the immigrant visa is nit current for my country.
Currently, the EB1-OR immigrant visa is current for my country, and I-485 can be processed after 4-6 months depending on the approval/non-approval of EB1-OR. I am also beginning to teach as a Adjunct Faculty at a University in Spring 2013. All my degrees, B.S. (Civil Engg); M.S. and Ph.D. are in Industrial and Systems Engineering with Aviation research as primary area and Firefighters/First Responders as my secondary research area.
So please let me know what do you suggest if I can file EB1-Outstanding Researcher? If you think my case is strong, (at least I am confident), I would like to self-apply by using your excellent DIY EB1-Outstanding Researcher and Professor Package. My company will give me letters and will sign Form I-140 for me.
***** Email from Novotny on 11/27/2014
I am currently residing and working in the U.S. on H-1B Visa. My Visa is expiring in April 2016. My employer has initiated Green Card process. My Labor certification and I 140 has been approved. In order to file form I-485, I need a J-1 Waiver. I am inquiring if you can help me file and obtain a J-1 waiver.
I had entered in the U.S. first time in 2009, on J-1 visa as a student. Now I live in U.S. with my family. In order to full fill the requirement of the J-1 waiver at this stage is really difficult for me and my family. Given the law and order situation, the living conditions in my home country do not offer a safe living and are dangerous and life threatening. It will be also challenging for my children to adjust in the environment and to make such move is a hardship in the context of law and order situation in Pakistan.
I am seeking J-1 Waiver, and need assistance from you. Please let me know if you would be able to provide me service to obtain J-1 waiver.
Looking forward to hear from you.

Dear Dr. William,
Your website about PERM Labor Certification application is very informative and helpful. Now I desperately need your help for Form ETA 9089 for the PERM Labor Certification application.
I am an assistant professor in TN and my current status is H1-B. My college filed ETA 9089 for me, but there was an error and the college had to request for review. It took a long time, about 16 months. The problem was that when the Department of Labor contacted my employer (in this case, president of the college), he was not available because he was attending some conferences, which lasted more than one week. And the result was a denial.
When the college received the denial letter, it was close to Summer break. Right after summer break, in August the college filed ETA 9089 again. But it was denied because the filing date of 18 months was passed. Do you think my college can use the date of initially filed application as a priority date? If so, how? If not, is there any other way to save my status?
***** Email from Christie on 10/26/2014
I visited your outstanding web site where I came across very helpful “Do It Yourself Package”. I have been in the U.S. since Jun 2009 on a L1 visa, and now my company want to change my visa to a TN (I'm about to reach the maximum stay on the L1). Because of this and since my wife is working using her L2, I think is time to apply for a Green Card to avoid complications.
Can you please point me to the correct "Do-It-Yourself Packages for U.S. Green Card" since I currently still have the L1? Also, can you give me a ballpark of the time it will take for me to obtain the Green Card, and more importantly, can I stay in the U.S. while the application is being processed?
***** Email from Yang on 10/14/2014
One of my colleagues recommended I contact you, regarding the application for green card. I would like to talk to you regarding the same.
Just to tell you about me a little, I moved to Ohio in 2009 for my PhD in Engineering and currently working at
a university as a Research Associate (PostDoc) in Chemical Engineering on Optional Practical Training (OPT).
I don not have H1B visa. I have only 4 journal publications (well cited by others) and there is one more that will be published in next 2 months or so. Moreover, I have like 6-7 conference presentations at national level
conferences. Also, I review manuscripts for peer reviewed high impact
journals in my field.
I was hoping to submit my application for green card but I don't know if I should file in EB1-OR or EB2-NIW.
My PhD work and also my current work is of extreme national interest. I must also tell you that my employer is willing to sponsor for green card, meaning they are willing to sign the documents but I will bear the expenses.
Please find attached my resume which can help you with some more details about my experience and achievements. I would like to purchase a Complete Do-It-Yourself package for EB1-Outstanding Researcher/Professor, or EB2-NIW (National Interest Waiver).
Thank you so much for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
***** Email from Shrirang on 10/2/2014
I was amazed to find detailed information about immigration on your web site, and all the wonderful reviews by your happy customers. I have decided to invest in your EB1 Do-It-Yourself package.
My husband has a PhD in Agriculture, has 10 publications from his PhD in international journals, one patent and two awards from an International association apart from numerous university awards. He has also served as a reviewer of journal articles for an international journal.
His research is in the field of bio-fuels and sustainable energy which is vital for the nation. Apart from this, he has 8 years of industry experience and has two patents. Additionally, he has received a job offer and the company is willing to
file for his H1B. He will however join as soon as he gets his OPT.
My question is, will EB-1A best serve his case or should we consider NIW? Can we initiate the filing of EB-1A right away or wait for the company to file I-140 for H1B or is it better if we file after he gets his H1B? We are a little confused and would appreciate your inputs before purchasing the DIY.
Thank you for your time and valuable suggestion.
***** Email from Kwon on 9/27/2014
I would like to thank you for keeping your web site excellent and for posting many helpful articles. I am a hospital pharmacist working under H1-B. The hospital (my employer) agreed to sign ETA form 9089, if I prepare the draft. Then, I am now trying to fill it.
I got this job a year ago and the hospital advertised the position using local news papers, pharmacist recruiter's company, hospital website, at that time. But, It was more than 180 days ago and I know that I cannot use them to fill "professional recruitment information" on ETA Form 9089.
But, 5 months ago, my co-worker (pharmacist) quit the job and hospital placed the same types of the advertisement to hire her replacement. Is it possible to use this most recent advertisement to fill my form? From the beginning, I have a simple question about the meaning of the advertisement. What is the point to advertise the non- opened my position in order to fill the form 9089?
It does not make sense to advertise non-opening position to the public in order to see the reaction from the community.
What happen if qualified American applied to non-opening my position?
Anyway, please, tell me if I can use the advertisement (for my co-workers replacement) placed 5 months ago.
***** Email from Sojin on 9/19/2014
Thank you so much for your encouragement!
I am currently under an O-1 Visa for employer A in Philadelphia. Employer B in Boston has offered me work within this period, has filled in the O-1 petition, and it has been approved by the USCIS. I am now holding a I-797 allowing me to work for employer B in Boston.
The work in Boston would be from January until March 2016; which is within the period of the initial O-1 visa I got for employer A. Do I need to make an other visa in order to work for employer B?
Or the valid O-1 visa (with employer A's name on it) + the I-797 approval for employer B is enough? I ask because i will go in and out of the US during this whole period. As it is a lot of short period of time over a longer period. I know that on I-797, it says that this form does not replace a visa and that one needs to use it in order to get one.
I hope to hear from soon.
Thanks a lot.
***** Email from Jiang on 9/16/2014
I have a question and concern on the EB1 qualification requirements. I was in U.S. for 7 years (2 - F1, 5 - H1B). I moved to India with the same employer. I will have my 1 year completed in my home country, and can move back to US post April.
In that scenario, will I qualify for EB1 category and how soon can I file? My H1 still holds good and is valid until 2016. In these remaining 4 months, if I travel to US, will the condition be void for EB1 filing? Should I complete avoid traveling to US, or can I travel on B1 visa to maintain my employment outside US for 1 year??
Any help or advise will be much appreciated.
***** Email from Krishna on 9/4/2014
Thanks for the RFE package for the EB-1B Outstanding Researcher/Professor! I believe it is very helpful.
Do you have any petition letter samples based on cases for Assistant Professors working in a Business School? My field is Human Resource Management. Basically, I have been asked to provide copies of all my appointment letters at the University and change in employment terms along with the university HR manual.
I have claimed outstanding professor under three of these categories - Reviewer, Publications and Original Work. The officer has asked me to provide more objective evidence (not more letters) and criteria for being a reviewer. Under the other categories they have prefaced it with the phrase - If applicable.
Should I provide evidence under the other categories - basically under awards and membership to associations? I have no evidence of scholars or news reports about me or my work. Your reply to my questions and any additional insights/ advise will be greatly appreciated.
***** Email from Yinghui on 8/26/2014
The information provided on your website is very impressive. I am interested in your "Complete Do-It-Yourself Package" for L1 visa application.
I am running a small IT Company, the company had 45K turnover this year but we are only two employees. I want to migrate to USA. I have registered my LLC company in U.S. Now I am looking for some help to file L1 visa and thereafter Green Card. I am willing to manage both the companies till I get Green Card.
But if L1 is not suitable, I am ready to go for E2 visa. But then E2 visa I don't know if I can apply for Green Card.
Thank you very much.
***** Email from Haeng on 8/23/2014
I am interested in purchasing your Complete Do-It-Yourself Package for O1 Visa/Status Application. I have a few questions however and would very much appreciate it if you would kindly answer them:
1) I am an opera singer and I have already had 2 consecutive 01 visas (my current one will expire in 2 months.) I am applying now for one year extension. Do you offer a package specifically designed for such case? See, I know how to prepare an artistic portfolios, letters, peer group advisory opinion etc. and other documents required for 01 visa. But I do need to know the specifics on how to apply for a one year extension.
2) Do you update your packages? The USCIS issued some updates last October regarding the requirements for petitioners. Do you reflect on that in your package?
***** Email from Ajay on 7/30/2014
According to my friend, I fund your great web site! I would like some guidance in regards what path to follow to get my Green Card. I’m a computer Science Engineer, and currently attending a Petroleum Eng. I’m an Information Technology Professional, and I have 15 years of experience assigned to several countries and now in US.
I have worked 14 years for an Oil & Gas Services company with presence in 82 countries. I left my home country to attend to a Company training in Scotland. Then, joined a Consulting firm as Senior Consultant (H1B), as my current job.
I have 15 years of experience successfully dealing with international customers. I have copy of my appraisals, all of them as Outstanding and/or Exceed Expectations. I received Stock options 4 times with recognition letters from company president. I generated key projects for company that were the first in the world to achieve. I do not see a problem to get recommendation letters from customers/peers and managers.
Questions: Do you think I’m eligible for which Green Card application category?
Thanks in Advance.
***** Email from Shim on 7/19/2014
I would like to apply for a US Green Card. While surfing your website, I have noticed that I have the eligibility criteria for the "Extraordinary Ability" and "EB1 Outstanding Researcher/Professor" tracks. I have attached my CV and would appreciate it if you could double check to see if I am right. If so, would you let me know how you will help and what the charges are? I would like to purchase packages of EB1-EA, NIW, and EB-1B.
I earned my Master degree in Biostatistics in 2008 and just finished my PhD in Biostatistics. Now I work as a Research Assistant Professor at the same university where I studied. As I only worked for several months, the university won't apply green card for me at this time point. So I am thinking to do it by myself but not sure which category fits best. I have heard from some friends that I can fill 3 types. That is why I want to order 3 packages for EB1 Outstanding Researcher/Professor, EB2 National Interest Waiver, and EB1 Extraordinary Ability..
Now I have more than 10 publications, several conference posters and talks, and a few review experience, plus one media report related to one of my conference talks. As part of my work, I am going to Harvard for another Master degree soon in this fall and my boss will support my study.
First, I thought to go for EB1B, but I don't think my university will provide an offer letter which states a permanent position. Because the entire Medical campus doesn't offer any tenure track faculty position, and my current offer letter has an expiration date. I don't know how possible I can deal with this problem so I am thinking EB1A is another option but with less chance since I am not that outstanding. Thus, NIW comes to my mind as well. But my concern with NIW is that more people apply for it and it might make more time.
I wish to know more about all 3 kinds applications so I either fill all or make a better choice late. If you can provide me any suggestion, I will really appreciate it.

Greetings and best wishes!
I wanted to order "Complete Do-It-Yourself Package for EB1 Multinational Executive or Manager Petition", however, wanted to get clarity about the whole process and chances of doing and getting it.

Worked for last 5 yrs with IBM and currently in USA on L1A. Working as Project Manager and worked as Technical Analyst, Business Analyst and System Administration role. I am also performing People Manager role which has authority to hire, terminate.
My employer told me that they will not sponsor green card/PERM and this has put me down and worried about my family and kids who are studying. Could you please help me to understand whether I can use your "Complete Do-It-Yourself Package for EB1 Multinational Executive or Manager Petition," and what is success rate based on my facts above.
Your reply and guidance will be a life changing event for me. Thanks in advance.
***** Email from Grando on 6/28/2014
I want to order a "Complete Do-It-Yourself Package" from your website. I believe it will be very helpful.
I am a foreign national currently working in the US on an L1A visa. I will be terminating my employment next year, and would like to know if I can apply for a green card myself, or through an immigration lawyer if necessary, without my current employer sponsoring me?
Also, my wife is an L2 holder - can we apply for a green card at the same time even if she is currently unemployed?
***** Email from Ambrish on 6/15/2014
I got most of valuable information from your well designed web-site.
I work for my Employer as a contractor on L1A Visa. My Wife also works under the same Employer under the same visa category. I had initiated my GC processing through my Employer late last year and the latest update is that ETA 9089 was generated and submitted back. I have some questions to be answered so that I can plan if I can seek your service.
My Employer is processing my GC under EB3 Category. Are we eligible for EB1 as both my wife and myself are under L1A? Can I process my GC through a law firm by canceling or taking over from my Employer?
If I convert to H1B visa, that would max out 6 yrs next year. Can I convert to H1 with extension beyond 6 yrs. Not sure if we will be eligible considering the GC status. Please note that my wife will be added to my GC only during that Form I-140 stage. Not sure when I would reach that stage.
***** Email from Joaurell on 6/4/2014
Thank you for taking the time to read my email enquiry. I am fascinated with the information you have on your website and would like your advice on the the following matter.
I am currently employed as a school psychologist under my OPT. This is my second year in the field, previously I completed a full year internship under my OPT. I have a Educational Specialist degree from a US university. Through my educational career, I have won scholarships, graduate/teaching assistantships and awards for my graduate research. I have outstanding recommendations from my professors and supervisors. However to date, I do not have any journal publications.
I have a license to practice in my current state and is in the process of being nationally certified. I have memberships with the national and state association of school psychologists.
My current work focused on enhancing mental health and academic competence of all children. I am actively involved school reform and educational policies. Additionally, I am ethically and legally responsible as a strong advocate for equal educational opportunities for children with disabilities. Based on national surveys and research, school psychologists are highly in demand, but there is a national shortage of school psychologists, especially minority psychologists.
I was hoping my employer would sponsor my H1-B but I'm having some bureaucratic difficulties with the HR department. My intention is to stay in the US to pursue my career interest that will benefit the leaders of tomorrow, but I don't want to tied down to a particular employer. A friend brought up NIW, so I thought I would look more into it. I am not too confident that my qualifications are strong enough, hence I would like to seek your professional advice.
Thank you so much for your time and help! I look forward to hearing from you soon.

We would like to purchase DIY package of EB1-EA or NIW. I have a Ph.D from India and moved to US in 2010. I was a Post-doc at UCSF. Now in Canada as a permanent resident and doing my second Post-doc at a University.
I want to file a petition for US-Green card in EB1-extraordinary and EB2-NIW. I was on J-1 in US and have waiver from home country and also US state dept. My husband is doing small scale business here in Canada.
My question to you is: whether I can file a petition from Canada? Or I should be in US and have a Job do so. Your reply to my concern will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks and Regards.
***** Email from Shuwen on 5/15/2014
To whom it may concern,
I found your website while searching for immigration help on Google. To me, you are an expert in the EB1 and NIW visas.
I plan to buy the DIY package for NIW application from you website. I have a special case that I want to apply for Form I-140 on my behalf but apply for Form I-485 through my wife, because I am from China and my wife is from Taiwan. I was told that this way I can avoid the waiting time.
Is this so calling "cross filing" true and does your package include detailed information on this issue?
***** Email from Pegg on 5/3/2014
I have recently visited your web site and was impressed by the amount of information available. Of particular interest is the option of applying for green card under the EB1 Extraordinary Ability and National Interest Waiver program.
I am working as Postdoctoral Researcher working in non profit agency. I am J1 visa holder. I would like to go for EB1 Extraordinary Ability (EB1-EA). Currently I have 26 publications, 6 presentations and 101 citations. Please find my CV as attachment and kindly advise me about my green card processing.
I would gratefully appreciate help with the following questions:
1) Due to lack of funding in my current PhD, I’m planning to switch from my current PhD program in Health Administration (Strategic Management) to Business Administration (Management/Entrepreneurship). Should I wait till I get into another PhD program to apply? Will switching pose problems to my NIW application?
2) Will Honor Society membership help strengthen my NIW application?
Thanking you in advance
***** Email from Satish on 4/26/2014
I would like to first thank you for your website, it is immensely helpful.
I am originally from India, came to US to pursue PhD in Chemical engineering. I graduated with PhD and currently working as a postdoctoral researcher at a private University in NJ.
My employer is willing to sponsor me for Green card but I am not sure if I can qualify for EB1-Outstanding Researcher category. The problem is that my appointment
here expires in August next year, and I am not sure if I can get my green card by then. One more issue is that I have only one published paper and quite a few conference presentations. I would like to take your suggestion before I proceed further.
I would really appreciate if you can go through my resume that is attached.
***** Email from Yesha on 4/6/2014
I am very glad to find your superior website for green card application. I am J-1 holder. I received this visa through scholarship program sponsored by the US State Department.
Now after receiving my MBA degree and according to the program and visa regulation I am required for 2-year home residency. After browsing on your website I seriously think about J-1 waiver application.
1) Would you tell me how big are my chances to get that waiver? Which option between "No Objection" and "Fear of Persecution" would be better, considering that my study was paid by the US State Department/Government?
2) I have about 3 months until my DS-2019 expires. Do you think it is enough time to consider my application and receive, I hope, an approval?
3) After receiving waiver, can I apply for any academic program ( say the second master degree in my recent school)?
4) Applying for H1-B visa, how difficult for foreigner, like me, to get H1 considering that current unemployment rate is very high in the US and a company-sponsor needs really perfect worker' abilities to persuade USCIS to issue H1?
What else can you advice me to do? Thank you in advance.
***** Email from Wuan on 3/28/2014
I have been reading your excellent website since 2 year ago. I'd like your advice on my situation. I just graduated with a Ph.D. in electrical engineering last December. Now I'm doing part time teaching. My OPT will expire Feb. next year. Since I don't have a full-time job yet, I can't apply for H1B and OPT extension. I prepare to apply for NIW/EB1A, though I think I have a better chance of NIW.
How long do you think I can know the result of I-140 after the filing? Is it going to be a long wait for I-485? I guess my concern is I need to have a EAD card to continue to work. What do you think is the best way for me to get a EAD card as soon as possible, before my OPT expires?
Can I file 485 and 140 concurrently in order to get a EAD card? Can I work while 140 and 485 are pending?
If my 140 is approved, can I work using the EAD card while 485 is pending? If 140 is denied, then I lose the EAD card, right?
Thank you very much for your help!
***** Email from Sheng on 3/19/2014
Your website about green card application is very informative and helpful.
I want to apply for a green card and would like to buy the EB1 package from you. My O1 visa was recently approved. I want to file for EB1 as an extraordinary tennis coach. Is it possible to use the same letters (the copies-not the originals) I used for my O1? The lawyer that filed my previous visas says no, yet I have a friend that did it and was successful. The letters are dated between May and September last year.
I don't know how to let you know through your website which is the package I want. Also, if I wanted to use PayPal will I have to go under the "send money" option? How do i know that you will be mailing the package to me?
I look forward to hearing from you soon,
***** Email from Doris on 3/8/2014
I have applied for the green card using your Do-It-Yourself Kits and I got it approved!! Thank you VERY MUCH!
Now I'm waiting for the change of status because I filed my I485 later in Jan of this year. I already got my EAD.
I have been offered a new job at a pharmaceutical company and I am wondering whether I should work there using my EAD or if they should transfer my H1B visa, which they've said they are willing to do. My green card was an EB2 outstanding researcher with NIW and it was a self application.
The new job is doing exactly the same thing as I do now, just in a different company. Would getting a new sponsor for my H1B affect my I-485 application? Is it better to use the EAD?
Thank you VERY much again.
***** Email from Igor on 2/27/2014
I decided to order a Complete Do-It-Yourself Package, but I'm not sure which is the appropriate one for my situation: EB1 Outstanding Researcher, or EB1 Extraordinary Ability Petition.
I have an MD/PhD from Germany and I’m working for 8 years in research (molecular biology) at a University. Our University extended my H1B visa recently and I got promoted to a Research Associate. I have 10 publications so far and several presentations at scientific meetings/congress and I developed a system that brings money to our lab.
The University did applied for green card for a co-worker (from Chile) and she got rejected. Now I'm afraid to let the University apply for me because I'm not sure if my reference letters (5 so far) are good enough/specific to the qualifications….etc.
Please let me know your suggestions.
Thank you kindly for your time and help.
***** Email from Chuan on 2/16/2014
I am very highly appreciate your help. I got a Request for Initial Evidence from USCIS. I read all the cases related to RFE on the website: http://www.greencardapply.com/rfe.htm
Last time when I submitted all the documents to USCIS, I included my income data on the I-864, as well as my husband's because I was worried if my husband's income would be reached to 125% of poverty guideline. But I found out I was wrong and I need to put his gross income (IRS 1040) on the document.
I don't have w-2s and 1099 as the RFE required because I did not work in the US. Last time I put my home-country earned income in the document and now I want to exclude the data from I-864, because I cannot submit what RFE required based on the I-864 that I submitted last time.
Could I just make a revised new I-864 to send them with this explanation why I cannot meet what RFE required? I want to put only my husband's income so I want to resubmit a new I-864 rather than submit evidences based on wrong I-864 that I messed up before.
Most info on the Internet say to follow up RFE direction, however I think my original I-864 was wrong in my case so I cannot follow it up (like w-2, 1099 etc).
Is that okay for me to submit a new I-864 with this explanation as a response of RFE?
Thank you so much.
***** Email from Marya on 2/3/2014
I emailed you before. I am ready to buy a DIY package from you, but between EB1-EA and NIW, I am not sure which one to choose.
Could you tell me the major differences between the two. I know both categories have demanding requirements, but which one is relatively less demanding? Which one might give you a better chance and takes less time, etc.? Thank you so much. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
***** Email from Viktor on 1/25/2014
I plan to apply a visa for getting green card. I am looking for the best way. I hope, you would be in the best of cheers & happiness. Here's my attached resume for your kind perusal. Just in brief, I am currently working as a Senior System Analyst on H1B for IBM, based out of St Louis, MO.
I am approaching you with lots of hope and request you to evaluate my resume for Green Card processing under National Interest Waiver (NIW) Category /any other suitable category as per your guidance.
I would be highly obliged for your kind support & cooperation for highlighting the roadmap for US green card processing. Please let me know, if you need any copies of education/service certificates. I look forward for your positive response at your earliest.
Thanks a lot for your support & cooperation..
***** Email from Chomba on 1/13/2014
I would like to order Complete Do-It-Yourself Package from your site. Before doing it I was wondering if I am eligible for EB-1B or should I go with EB2 NIW. I would really appreciate your response in this regard.
I am currently titled as a research scientist in a small company (<50 employees). I have a MS degree from US and my expertise in materials science and engineering is mainly used for process development related work. The reason I think I might fit in the category of NIW is that the major project I am working on is for the application of solar cells, which is one of the strong national interest of alternative energy. I put together a biography/resume, would you mind take a quick look at it and let me know how do you think?
I would more than likely to do this by myself instead of my employer if NIW is a feasible path to follow.
***** Email from Qin on 1/4/2014
I am H1 visa holder working as a research professor in a University. My employer recently agree to sponsor my Green card application through EB-1B. I have an approved NIW I-140 petition.My husband is current in China. He plan to reunite with me but his application for H4 visa is under background check for 8 months. We have try many ways to contact with department of state, visa office, USA. The response is always pending. I’m afraid his case is lost and will be pending forever.
I don’t know if I should apply for green card right now. If my EB-1B I-140 is approved in several months, can he fill his I-485 while he is outside of USA?
Do you think there may have trouble if I fill EB-1B I-140 while his H4 visa is still pending?
Thank you very much for your help!
