Default On L1A, h1 expired - can I switch jobs with approved I140?


Recommended Posts


Putting some more meat to what's in the title.

My h1b expired 2 years ago ( stayed in US 20 days short of completing 6 yrs). I'm back in US after 2 yrs, on l1 and staying since a month. I140 is currently getting processed towards my GC. My question is - can I switch jobs on the basis of my old H1b once the I140 gets approved (ie- go for extn for my h1b with a new company based on the approved I140)?

(Couldn't see a thread that had answer to my peculiar case and hence opening a new one. Pardon me if its a re-post. Would appreciate answers.
