My H1b visa is expiring on Dec 31st. My company has filed my extension with premium processing and I got specialty occupation RFE last week that need to be responded by Jan 20th.
My company has already started working on RFE along with attorney however I have some question related to other options.
If my company would respond RFE after my visa expiry, Are they able to file my another extension with different LCA with different title on safer side?
For you information, they already have another approved LCA for me (with different title) that they filed while they were filing my initial extension.
Or they can file another extension only after getting USCIS decision on my RFE.
Please advise on it so I could not lose my status and borrow some time.
Thanks Anil for quick reply.
So you mean, if my current RFE would be denied, my amendment petition would also be get denied though it would have different title with different job duties and responsibilities?
Will it make any difference if amendment petition would be filed before i94 expiry simultaneously with RFE response?
What would be your best advise since I have some time left on my i94 expiry?
Thanks a lot sir. I have one more question. If I file amendment during 10 days grace period ( 10 days gap between i797 expiry date and i94 expiry date) will they consider as bridge with existing extension or consider as new petition?
