l1_to_h1_new Posted November 24, 2011 Report Share Posted November 24, 2011 I was in US for Company A on L1 Visa in the month of April, I approached Company B for filing H1 visa, and company B filed the Change of Visa petition instead of regular H1 based on my I94 (expiring on aug 2013). I had to go back to India in the month on May and did not come back to US. Actual date of receipt of application in USCIS is jul-28, by then I was already in India and I-94 would have been invalid. Is it possible for someone to file a change of status without being in US. What is the implication. Will there be any impact on the current Visa (L1 - expiring in aug-2013), should i reenter now to US in Jan-2012. If i am in US and the petition gets approved, will my I94 change immediately to company B and is it illegal to work for company A (I have notice period of 2 months). Can someone answer my questions.
