baghya143 Posted November 20, 2013 Report Share Posted November 20, 2013 Hi, I have filed my GC on July 8th 2013(PERM Pending and priority date is Jul 8th 2013) and 140 can be applied only after Perm approval from dol. I was here on L1 - B from Oct 2007 till DEC 6th 2012 My company applied for a change of status to H1B in 2012 , which i got on Dec 6th 2012 and got approval till Dec 2014 . If I calculate my 6 year term with L1b+ H1, the 6 year period is completing on Feb 2nd 2014(excluding the days stated outside the country on vacation). So mean while until i get my Perm approved and I-140 can i continue my stay in USA with Current H1 ( stay period is more than 6 years after feb 2014 ) Details of my entry and exit: L1- B - 10/28/2007 to 11/18/2008 - 18 days outside L1-B - 12/07/2008 to 05/27/2009 - 53 days outside L1 B - 07/19/2009 to 03/01/2011 - 27 days outside L1 B - 03/27/2011 to 12/05/2012 H1B(Change of Status as part of 2012 H1B quota) - 12/06/2012 - till date So I was outside the country for 97 days. Green card Perm filing date /priority date - July 8th 2013. My Perm was filed and priority date is July 8th 2013. If i don't get my I-140 till Jan 2014, can I stay beyond Jan 2014. So that I will have buffer time to get my I-140 approval. Could anyone help me, Beacuse I am forseeing my Perm approval will take beyond Jan 2014. Incase of luck i might get soon. But please advice. Appreciate your help Thanks in advance Link to comment
