Change in client when H1-B is picked and in process.

Recommended Posts

Hi my H1-B got picked and is in process with no rfe yet. As my project with my present client is over(which my LCA is filed) and I had to move to a new client. If I get an rfe now to prove employer and employee relationship is there a way to answer this rfe as I can't file a new LCA on my present client.


My employer says that if I get an rfe there is no way to support the petition as I changed my client. He has to withdraw the petition. Is this true? or is there any way to answer this rfe?

Essentially, the H1 is gone. The project has to exist until the H1 kicks in on Oct. 1 for the H1 to be valid.

What is your current status ? As JoeF@ said , your H1b will be gone and you would have to rely upon underlying status which I assume is F1/OPT and then try again with a new employer next year or move to cap exempt employer. If this happens, you should consult a qualified immigration attorney for your options.
