H1B extension processing date past the receipt date


Recommended Posts

My H1B extension under regular processing receipt date for the California Center is July 8th, 2016. The processing time chart for CSC shows Aug 8th,2016 as the current date which was updated on April 18th. I have waited 1 and a half week and my status still shows case received.  Has anyone in the vicinity of July 8th,2016 got their H1b approved under regular processing. My 240 days are up on May 28th,2017. I am not confident my H1b will be approved by then. My attorney says, since we applied for extension well in advance of my H1 expiry date(Sep 30,2016) and the delay is from the USCIS side, we have a case against the 240 day rule. Is that true? Does anyone else have any experience with this?
