H1B amendmant not filed and current H1B is close to expire

Recommended Posts

My H1-B will expire Sept 30th, 2015 and my employer has already filed my PERM application (which is pending decision as of today. I have confirmation from the immigration lawyer on this)


When I approached my employer for filing the H1B extension, I came to know that they have not filed an amendment on my behalf when I joined Client- X one year ago.


Both my employer and I are in the same State but different cities. Initially, my H1-B was filed where my employer's office is located at (City B).  I have been working in a different city (City C) for the past year.


Is there a workaround solution to my situation? I need some recommendation/ guidance so that I am more prepared when talking to my employer. I am concerned as I do not want to go OUt of Status post September 30th.


Thank you.

Employer has to file an amendment and it has to get approved. If you are completing your 6 years on H1B by 30th Sep 2015 and do not have a PERM or I-140 pending for a decision for more than a year or an approved I-140 you have to either move to a dependent status or exit US.
