Hi All,

 

As per as new Amendment rule, I requested to apply amendment for my employe r as My client changed location. But employer filed Amendment + Extension on Sep 23rd 2015 as my Current H1-B is expiring on June 7th 2016 without informing me.

 

I traveled to India on Dec 3rd 2015 and returned on Jan 1st 2016. I traveled because i thought amendment is pending with USCIS once i return i can file for extension. After return i got to know they applied Amendment + extension for me. 

 

Still my Amendment + extension is pending with USCIS, Now i got New I-94 different Number but with same expiration date(Old I-94 ) which is June 7th 2016.

 

Now My employer is asking to apply again H1-B extension based on latest I-94.  

 

Please let me know should i need to apply again? 

I searched in google, I saw reply """“”now I-94 is an online system....USCICS can pull your latest I-94 thru online and will issue new I-94 along with your I-797 approval copy....”” is this true? 

 

Please let me know.

H1 extension can only be applied for up to 6 months before petition expiry. How did he apply for extension 10 months in advance. Hopefully you are not paying anything. If he wants to file for the extension, let him. I also think you should find a better employer.

 Amendment + extension is a special case we can apply 10 months in advance also
