Hi,

I have a complicated situation. Here is the sequence of events

 

Feb 2015-  LCA for Green card was filed.

 

July 2015 - Employer filed for Extension of H1b to recapture number if days outside USA. The extension was asked until end of Jan 2016

 

Aug 2015 - 6th year H1b expired 

 

Nov 2015- I-140 was approved.

 

Jan 2016 - H1b recapture extension application still pending.

 

Does 240 days rule apply in this case? will I be out of status End of Jan 2016?

 

My attorney suggested waiting for the extension application to clear before filing a new one based on approved I-140.

 

Will USCIS approve my application for extension till end of January after January?
