2nd year on H1B and company got acquired by another company and original name dissolved

Recommended Posts


I am on H1B since last 2 yrs and my original petitioning company is acquired by new company. This new company is an indian consultancy who works only on C2C contracts. Now since my original petitioning company is acquired by new company and the name was not retained by this new company so they filed a new transfer petition on my behalf.  I have a valid i94 till Sep 2018 with my original company but that company is no more into existence. Now if this transfer petition is denied, will I have to leave the country in 2 weeks time or I can stay till my i94 expiry date. 

Please suggest.

Thanks in advance.
