I-140 approved, new employer, PD current but new employer hasnt started the green card process yet


Recommended Posts

I am currently on 5th year of my H1B, I got my I140 approved from Employer A, but currently I am with employer B with H1B valid until Jan 2014 (got 3 year extension due to approved I-140). Employer B hasn't started my green card process yet.

My question is

What if my PD becomes current in the next month, and I cant start my green card process with the new company in the next few months, will my H1B still be valid until Jan 2014 or I get only 6 year H1B time?

Can I still get extention of my H1B after Jan 2014 if my PD is current but my green card has not been initiated with the employer B?

Truly appreciate your response.

Your H-1B will still be valid until Jan-2014.

You can get 3 year extension of H-1B beyond Jan 2014 based on your approved I-140 if it is not revoked by Employer A.

But in the meantime if you get another I-140 from your current employer, you can use that to get 3 year extension of H-1B beyond Jan 2014.

Please also talk to your lawyer to confirm whatever you read here.
