Extension issues with H1b expiring in September?

Hi,

 

My current H1b expires September 18th 2015 [this is the date on the i94]. 

 

After an extension is applied for, I believe the new H1b would come with a start date of october 1st. 

 

I am not sure what the status would be for the 2 weeks in between?

Would the extension, if approved, come in with a start date in September?

 

If October, what would be the status for those 2 weeks?

 

Thanks

It seems USCIS process has been changed I have seen few cases like this. If you applied your extention before previous I-94 expiry date and the recieved date on your I-797 is on or before your previous I-94 expiry date then I think you are good. If you still have questions ask your employer to raise a service desk ticket with USCIS.

Even if new I94's validity date starts well after old I94's expiry OP is still fine as s/he is considered on legal status as a decision was pending from USCIS on his/her H1B petition.
