H4 to H1, employer change query


Recommended Posts

Friend is on H4 in US from Feb.  Her H1 application by employer A went through lottery in April 2014.  Now, H1 is not yet stamped. 


a) if she gets better opening with employer B, before October 1, can she transfer H1 to employer B and then go for stamping?  Which documents will be needed by employer B from employer A if this has to be done? 


b) Further is stamping required since she is in US itself - I read somewhere that if 797A is there then COS is approved otherwise if 797B is there then there is a definite need to go for stamping in home country before being able to work in October?
