H1B Extension and Transfer

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

My current H1B with Company A is valid till 30-Sep-2014 and its up ready for extension. Now, I'm planning to switch my employer to Company B who will be doing the H1B transfer. So, I have the following questions:

1. Will this be an issue if A files a petition for extension and B files for H1 transfer at the same time?

2. If B files a petition for H1 transfer prior to A applies for extension, will I be able to get new validity on my I-797 (of what was submitted in the client/project by B)?

 

Thanks in advance.
