Recapture of H1B unused time

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

  i got my H1B approved in July 2014  and it is valid from Sept 2014 to Sept 2017

  I went to USA and worked for the company who sponsored my H1B  from Dec 2014 to May 2015.

  Due to some personal problems i  went back to india in June 2015.

  I heard that there is a new rule which can be used to recapture my unused time after 6 years.

 Can anyone who has experienced this, answer me?

 1) when will my 6 year period end   ?  ( July 2014- july 2020)   or (sept 2014- sept 2020)  or ( dec2014- dec 2020)

 2) Can I utilize my remaining period using cap exempt for  2 and half  years ? or 5 and half years ? (assuming H1B total 6 years)

 3) My previous H1B sponsor not willing to apply for me, can you suggest any employer who can apply cap exempt ?

I appreciate your help.

Thank you.
