H1B transfer out of status

Recommended Posts


Please help.

employer A, I797 till 5/18/2020.

switched employer: LCA certified 5/18/2017 to 5/19/2020 approved. I129 filed, visa receipt received and started working 6/19/2017. 

I797 came on 9/5/2017 with approved dates 11/19/2017 to 5/19/2020. After checking figured out lawyer put wrong dates on I129. He put start date 11/19/2017 instead of 5/19/2017. Amendment filed 9/29/2017 but have not received any response yet.

And will it be ok to change lawyer with amendment pending. 

Was I out of status? what should be my next step?

My employer lawyer is saying as per H1B portability rule, I was authorize  to work as soon as petition was filed.

And we got approval on 9/5/2017 and we noticed error, so we have file amendment also 9/29/2017.

So you are fine. 

It was a typing mistake on I129 and we have submitted amendment to USCIS.

He is saying, I was authorize to work and nothing is wrong.

Please can someone give their advice.
