    H1b remainder question!

    Yes, if you have an employer who is ready to file a petition for you, you will be cap exempt since you were counted towards the CAP in the past. Total stay on H1 is 6 yrs... You have used approx 2.5 -3 yrs you will be able to claim the reminder.

    LCA and Work location

    You will Need 1. a New LCA AND 2. a H1 B amendment petition Is your client changing ? Are your work responsibilities changing? Is location A and B in same metropolitan area? Actually whenever there is any material change with your employment, a new lca and amended h1 petition is required.

    L1B denied applying for H4

    H4 is dependent visa L1 is work visa... They are totally different classification..... Its easier to get dependent visa... as long as YOUR paperwork is in order
  11. Chitown01

    H1B cancelled against H4 visa.

    Since you had an approved H1 petition in the past you are Now CAP EXEMPT.... if you have a new employer in the USA they can file your H1 peittion as CAP EXEMPT and apply for COS. You can start working upon approval

    Duration of H1B visa for H4 holder

    1. There is nothing like H1 transfer, it is always a new petition. You are cap exempt thats true, let say next month you find a new job and employer is ready to do your h1, they will file for your petition which will be cap exempt and you can start working only after approval. 2. It would be the employer filing for new H1 b with change of status nothing else...

    H1B job role change query

    When ever your work responsibilities change you need an H1-B amendment.... As long as your job and company is legit no problem in approval GC check with your employer and attorney
  19. 1. When does your current petition and/or I-94 expire? If they are active and will be for sometime, then yes you can apply for transfer with the current extension being pending... However, if current petition is about to expire or has already expired, you will have to wait till the extension gets approved and then apply for transfer. Remember there is nothing like Transfer, it is always a new petition which is cap exempt

    H1 Query

    1. You were on H1 in past, so your prospective new employer can file for your H1 anytime as CAP exempt and you can start as soon as it gets approved. 2. No
  21. on H1 you cannot work with 2 employers at the same time.... unless there is concurrent wrk petition in place

    H4 Questions

    Will there be any issues: Are you on EVC model ? If yes, then there will be issue with stamping, they are strict with issuing visa's for EVC model even H4's.

    H1B transfer / Out of Status (Urgent)

    Yes, you are out of status.... There is nothing like "transfer" there is always a new petition.... you will need to get paid all the time, even if your employer is going to inform uscis after 30days.... If you find employment and new employer files for H1, you will have to submit all paystubs, w/o paystubs, uscis might approve petition but deny extension of stay and you will need to get stamping done and re enter There is NO grace period on H1

    With Desi Consulting companies it is hard to get h1 approval because uscis seeks employer employee relation client lettter etc.... Answer's to your Questions. 1. Not worth it, it will again get rejected. find a new employer. 2. Very Less... 3. doesn't matter...
