H1B 6yrs expiring soon, PERM will be applied. What are my options

Hello All, Hope you had a very good weekend! 

 

My case is as follows:

 

H1B start date: Oct 1st, 2008

6th year H1B expiry date: Nov 20th, 2014

(It can be extended for another 3 weeks as I went to India in Dec)
 

My employer has started the PERM process almost an year ago and I am guessing it will be applied by March.

 

My lawyer has asked me to go outside the country for 2+ months so I can make the total of 365 days. I started having conversations with my Manager about this and he is looking for global assignments in China, India and Singapore where we have offices.

 

My questions are:

1. By when should I have my global assignments complete so I can apply for H1B extension on time.

2. What are my options if my company cannot find me global assignments?

 

Can you please help me. 

Thanks a lot!

Employer can file for a year H1B extension based on PERM pending for more than 365 days or 3 year extension based on approved I-140. You could move to H4 if your spouse is on H1B or else you have to leave the country.
