H1b amendment and recapturing dates


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

my present H1b expires in Feb 2018. that will be the end of 6 years of my H1b. i have been out of US for atleast 18 months in my 6 years. now because of my recent job change my employer is filing amendment. my question is

1) can i file amendment and ask for 18 months recapture at the same time..i mean can i do it now? i was of the opinion that asking to recapture the dates would amount to an extension and you cant file an extension until 6months prior to end date.
