H1-B extension process clarification


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I would like to seek your guidance on my current situation.

Background :

My first H1-B was approved with employer A and the validity period was from 10/01/2014 – 09/30/2017.

I switched employers and filed an H1-B transfer in December 2015 which was approved in January 2016 with a validity from 02/12/2016 – 01/30/2019.
Currently I am employed with employer B.

I worked for only 1 year and 3 months with employer A which leaves 1 year and 9 months on my initial H1-B.

Questions :

1.) How does the H1-B extension work in this case ?
2.) Would the remaining time be considered for the extension application ?
3.) If I switch to employer C after 3 months and file a new H1-B transfer application, what would be the validity period and how would it affect my extension application ?

I want to be proactive and file my PERM and I-140 before my H1-B 5th year starts, any help or guidance provided would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time and consideration. Awaiting your reply.
