Employer not filling GC

Recommended Posts

I have 1 year and 4 months on GC. 

Current employer is reluctant to file for GC.

I doubt I can make a change of employer now.

What is the minimum time with with I should exit the country so that I have a shot at a cap exempt extension while perm is filled while I outside the country?

There is no minimum time, you can leave on the last day of your current h1b validity and still be eligible for cap exempt h1b extension in the future. However, cap exempt h1 extension can only be filed if your Perm is pending for 365 days or your perm AND your I 140 are approved. Just filing of perm doesn’t make you eligible for h1 extensions.
