Hello there,


My case is little different. I came to US only L1 and then converted to H1, i wanted to know how many years are left on my H1 for extension. Below are the Stay dates in US:

My First H1 was approved on Feb 2010, however I used my H1 from Jan 23 2012. The second H1 was filed on Oct 2012 and that was approved until Mid April 2014.


I'm applying for my H1 extension now and my employer is saying that i'm still left with 4 years on my H1 since i have used only 2 years. However i'm of the impression that i still have an year left on my extension. Please advise which is correct.
