Applying for PERM now but H1 expires end of september

Recommended Posts

Hello All

My employer just completed the AD process and it’s time to file for PERM which, as per my lawyer, takes 4 months. My 6 year H1B visa expires end of September 2013. By the time PERM is cleared and I149 is filed and approved, I would have passed way beyond my H1B visa period. What can I do to avoid leaving the country while my GC application is in process? If the PERM is cleared before my visa expires, can I extend the H1B visa? Any suggestions would be helpful. Thank you
