HI Saurabh,
I see one post about H4 to L1 conversion rules you mentioned. i.e .

- she has worked for that employer outside US for 1 year in past 3 years.
- the work involves use of employer proprietary skills, technology, expertise, tools etc which is not known outside the employer

Please help if still above statements are valid or any amendment to that rules added recently.

We are in same situation, so need your suggestion. Thanks.

Hope your well.
I applied for H1B through Employer A  and visa is valid from 29 Aug 2017 till 10th Sep 2019.

Now I got better offer with Employer B.

Please note i did not enter into US yet and I don't have SSN, paystubs of US employer etc

I would like to know, can I transfer my H1B to Employer B on day 1 of my visit to US without SSN, Paystubs of US Employer?.

Hi Saurabh,
I am a full-time employee at the good company. My petition for H1 B (academic) is approved and recently I visited India for stamping and currently stuck with 221 g for TAL (security clearance) as I am a PhD in Bio-science. Meanwhile, my employer has terminated. I am trying to talk to them if they can reconsider their decision. I want to go back to US to join my family,  I just want to check what are my options.  
1) My spouse is on H1 can I am eligible for H4, Can I apply for H4 stamping while H1 B 221 g is pending, or do I have to withdraw my H1 B application before applying for H4.

2) What are my chances of getting H4 approved, my spouse in US ( I140 approved) and kid ( US citizen)
3) Can I get 221 g for  H4 visa also as I am a PhD?
4) Does withdrawing H1 B application can affect chances of getting H1 B in future

Hi Saurabh,

My H1b extension got denied haven';t received the hard copy yet (but i am suspecting that it may be due to no client letter). My I94 expired Sept 22. My attorney is filling for a new extension with client letter (in premium processing) and saying that once its approved it will mostly come with I94. My wife is on F1 and I have a 6 month old baby .. Kindly advice what the best option so that I don't have t leave the country.

Should I leave US and go for stamping from any country/home country?
Or just re enter into US without stamping also help?

Please let me know
