RFE on current extension - Can we file another petition for extension for same employer?


I am a FTE and recently received an RFE for my H1 extension petition due to some discrepencies in the work location and job duties, my employer wants to file a new petition instead of replying to the RFE.

Would having a petition pending RFE from the same employer cause any issues on the new petition?

Yes, you can file new petition and withdraw the previous petition (petition that got RFE) that was pending.

Thanks Sidh for the response.

But in my case they are planning on withdrawing the current petition with RFE after the approval of the new petition.

Yes, you should be fine and to be tension free its better to do the new petition in premium processing, once after the decision you/employer can decide on withdrawing the old petition!
