H-1B got Picked and have RFE but no response from my Employer


Recommended Posts

Hello All,


I am on OPT and have applied for H-1B this year. Got to know from my employer that my case has been picked and I do have the case number with me now. When I check my status online, it says there is an RFE on my I-129. I tried to reach my employer on this but he is not responding back. I have no clue on what the RFE might be. As my employer is not responding, can I change to the other employer now and respond to the RFE? Is there any other way I can overcome this situation like can i appoint my own lawyer and have the RFE respond?  


I need your suggestion guys. Please do help me out on this.


Thanks in advance.

First, the H1 is the employer's petition, so only the employer can respond to an RFE.

Second, the H1 is not approved, so you can't change to any other employer.

Third, if it gets approved, you have to start working for the employer before you can do an H1 transfer to another employer.

This H1 may be gone. Next time, find a real employer, not some shady consulting company.

Universities have career fairs where real companies have booths. Why didn't you approach one of these companies?
