H1-B2-H1 (Got laid off and have only 60 days)


Recommended Posts

I got laid on July 15th and my current visa status is H1. My 60 days to find a new H1 employer expires on Sept 13th. I have few questions 
1. Can I apply for a change of status to B1/B2 to attend interviews or have more time to leave the country? Is it legal to do this? 
2. If I find a job on B2, should I leave the country and re-enter on my new H1 after stamping? 
3. Would have I complications in the future especially for green card or I-140?

What are the other options to stay in the country?
