Time frame within which to apply for h1 amendment ?


Recommended Posts

My company was acquired by another company just recently. As far as i know since there is a FEIN change, i would need to file an amendment. My question, is there any time frame within which to apply for the status change. Since i am still getting paid by my employer i am assuming that my status is still valid. Please if anyone could let me know.

The effect of corporate changes on H-1B petitions require a case by case evaluation. A simple change in FEIN does not automatically, without additional facts, lead to the conclusion that an amendment is mandatory. A consultation with an immigration attorney would clarify the legal requirements. If an amendment is required, it should be prepared and submitted as soon as possible, in most cases, to ensure continued maintenance of status.
