H1 Extension/ transfer with approved i140 from Old employer

Recommended Posts


Snapshot of my profile: 

I came to USA on F1 visa and graduated with Master of Computer Engineering 

Got first h1 in 2005

worked for multiple companies 

Filed GC from Company A and Perm, I140 approved. 

Moved out of company A and joined company B. The company A has revoked I140 after 1.5 years of approval. 

Company B - Did not initiate the GC but eventually the company layed off people 

Joined Company C - worked for 4 years and initiated H1 extension and they did not file the GC. Company C has shutdown while the H1 Extension in process while I was visiting my country for family health issues and eventually the h1 extension approved but expired now. 

Company D has filed my h1 extension/transfer from India and eventually petition denied as my I485 dates became current while in India and I140 revoked from company A. 

I am visiting the country on B1/B2 visa now and completed 90 Days. 

Company E is willing to file H1 extension/transfer. 

I have worked in USA for 13 plus years with multiple h1 extensions. 


1. If company A with whom my i140 was approved and eventually revoked, what are the chances of getting h1 extension approved ? 

2. Company E who is also willing to file h1 extension/transfer - what are the chances of approval ? 

3. Given this scenario, which one is the best option i.e going back to Company A or processing through company E as my i485 dates are current. With Company A, upon H1 approval, can reinstate i140 and apply for i485. With Company E, upon H1 approval, have to go through Adv, Perm, i140 and 485. 

4. or file for New h1 next year. 

Please advise.
