Using Day1 CPT to make time for GC

Recommended Posts

I have 1.5 years left on my H1B and my employer is delaying starting the PERM process atleast an year.

As I go through the various GC stages, can I switch to Day 1 CPT to buy time for getting GC done? Ideally, I am looking to somehow buy one year of time without losing out on a chance at GC+H1B forever.

It might be better to travel back to home country and come back rather than Day 1 CPT. 

Day 1 CPT will land you into many issues so better to avoid it. If you want plan for converting to F1 and back to H1 which will be better. I know you can't work on F1, but don't mess up the legal status by joining a Day 1 CPT collage.
