Hello,

 

I am working for a consulting company and came to US on a L1 visa in Dec 2009. Since then I am working in USA.

My L1 visa expires Nov 2014. (5 years Completed)

 

My customer wants to apply a H1b for me and file a PERM if H1 gets approved & immediately after it is active in October.  Not sure if this can be done. Any information on this greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks

Check whether you have a non-compete agreement signed with your current L1 employer. If not then your customer could file a cap subject H1B petition in April 2014 with a start date of 1st Oct 2014. Your GC process could be started even now.

Appreciate your response. Thanks a lot.

 

FYI,

When my customer expressed his wish to convert me as an employee in his organization, my current employer advised my customer to file H1b for me instead of they filing it. So I think I am good with non-compete agreement.

 

If cab subject H1B gets approved how long will I be able to stay? (Customer can start GC processing only after I become their employee)
