You can’t work after 240 days if your H1B extension is still not approved at that point. However you can keep living in the US till your petition is approved or denied. If denied you have to leave or find a new employer within 60 days.
If you worked after 240 days while your H1b extension was under processing then you may be barred from entering the US.
You can only file for GC if your new H1B employer can sponsor your GC and provided you dont have inadmissibility issue.
You may be able to port your priority date from your approved I-140 to the new employer.
It says if it’s H1B extension+ Amendment, 240 day rule is not applicable and employees can work beyond 240 days. Since I have applied for H1B extension followed by H1B amendment, I assume I didn’t accrue unlawful presence as per this website.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Not sure how far this is right.
Anyone has any idea?
Also, if I am going to serve 10-year bar, will I be able to file GC after 10-year bar without any issues?
