H4 to H1 after 6 yrs max out based on I140


Recommended Posts



I maxed out on my 6 yrs on H1B in Mar 2014. Since then I moved to H4 on my spouse's H1. I am currently on H4.


My I-140 got approved in May 2014.


My question is -


Can my employer now file for H1B extension (no recapture time left in my H1B) based on my I-140 approval? Will it be a cap exempt H1B-extension or it has to be filed as new H1B under quota next year?


Thanks in advance for your help!
