    L1 to H1

    Since OP's H1 is still pending, he can stay until a decision is made on H1, but he can't work until H1 approval or Oct 1st, whichever is later.

    Has Any one got H4 without H1 Amendment

    It is advisable to do the H1 amendment. You should have actually done when you changed the client. There is every chance that the consulate compares your I-129 with your current client location when your spouse goes for H4 stamping. If someone could able to get away or not is irrelavant. Follow your attorney's advice.
  3. That's not called as resigning. That applies only for your employer. Anyway, your H1B extension is applied based on the project with your current client. It's advisable to stick to that client until your extension is approved. Then if you want to change the client, file an amendment with the new client.

    L2--> H1B processing Questions

    If your husband H1B is already approved with COS effective Oct 1st, means his status is H1 from Oct 1st. He should stop working on L1 from Oct 1st and you should stop working on L2. You are no longer on L2.

    RFE Client letter ---Urgent Need Help

    What happened to your H1B. Were you able to reply to the RFE with new client letter and LCA? One of my friends is in the same situation.

    H4 to H1 query

    You are not clear with your question. You said you and your wife both have approved H1B under 2013 quota. I assume they both start at Oct 1st with valid i-94. She can't just move to H4 (by default) because she is doesn't have a job. Her status will be h1 from Oct 1st. If you want her to be H4, then you need to apply for her COS to H4 before Oct 1st. When she wants to move back to H1, she again needs to apply for COS to H1.
  7. One of my friends has this situation: An American company (not a biggie - one with around 500 employees) applied for his H1 under 2103 quota, regular processing in May. He was never on H1 before but on L1 until Jan 2012 and moved to H4 (on his wife's H1). Due to some reasons the internal project got cancelled. His h1 is still under initial review. Now the company says they have another position with their client in different location (with start date in October) and they are going to file an amendment to the pending H1. Can Amendment be filed to a pending new H1? I am confused. I was under the impression that amendment can only be filed for approved H1. But his company says differently. Anyone in this situation before? Please advice.

    6 year completion on H1

    Sometimes USCIS does make mistakes and it is the individual responsibility to make sure you stick to the rules (sounds crazy...but true). I had the similar situation, where my H1 petition was approved beyond 6 yrs (including the recaptured days) and I filed for extension (with approved 140) before the expiry of actual 6 yrs. Talk to your company's attorney.

    Travelling to India after H1-B Transfer

    1) Not required. 2) No 3) No, shouldn't be any issue 4) No. Lot of people travel in the same situation without going for stamping. I also did the ame last time.

    Salary change during PERM processing - Very Urgent

    PERM is for the future job. What you are getting now doesn't matter as long as your employer has the ability to pay the prevailing wage shown in PERM after the 485 approval. If your current salary goes up, that's always considered as +ve for GC processing.

    V Urgent - L1 to H1 with approved petition

    A word of caution - though you are cap counted, since you are currently on L1, you can't start working for B after transfer is applied. You HAVE to wait until H1 is approved. To be safe, resign from A after the H1 petition is approved with B.
  15. 1. What are the possible options I have to stay in the US? --Since you already applied for H1 (assuming, before expiry of your L1) you can stay in Us but can't work until H1 is approved. 2. Would I be able to claim 90 days I lost after rejection? --If your I-94 is still not expired 3. How many days we can stay in US after you getting rejected notice? --0 days. Leave immediately 4. After rejection, if I go back to India, when I can apply for new visa? -- Yes First thing I would suggest is to upgrade your H1 to premium. Actually you should have done this long back. Most important thing is DO NOT work until your H1 is approved (after the expiry of L1 I-94).
