Came to know about H-1B approval after shifting employers


Recommended Posts


I find myself in this tricky situation, where i thought i could seek you advice on.

I recently changed employers and after I did, I found out that my H-1B filed with my previous employer was approved. There was some miscommunication between USCIS and my firm attorney that delayed the approval and it might take another week for USCIS to resend this approval. Now because of this delay and the fact I didnt know about it, I have started work with my new employer who is ready to file a transfer provided they have the approval notice.

The danger here is that my former employer must not file a withdrawal before my new employer files the petition. What would be the best i could do at this point? Should i inform my former employer to not withdraw my petition?
