H1 b 6th year


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have used 5.5 years of my H1 and moved to H4. I have also spent 5 months approximately in india during my job of 5.5 years while i was on H1.

My H1 6th year is ending this december. I had almost 6months left over on my H1 wehn i moved to H4. If i find a job after decemeber can an employer take my existing H1 and file the petition. Or do i need to find a job before this decemeber 2012. Before and after december what will be the situations and procedure to file my H1 so that i can get a work permit.

Does the new employer need to file GC immediately or how does it all work...

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

You can find an job anytime and your employer can file for a H1 for the remaining 6 months period.

Since you have only 6 months left, there is nothing much you can do about starting the GC.

You can start but will have to leave at the end of 6 months and come back when your GC comes to a stage where you can come back.
