  • F1 student on cap-gap with H1b pending. Options??

    Hi Mr. Shah,

    I want your kind advise on my situation.
    Currently on F1 cap-gap status till Sept 30,2013 with H1b pending for a full time job from a good company in another state. Right now I am in CA.

    As I had used my OPT before for a previous degree on same level of education, I was not eligible for it this time so I just have authorization to stay in US till Sept 30 under cap-gap but no work authoriztion (as no OPT).

    Now, I have a new company in CA who is willing to hire me and do the H1 process for me. My question is, how soon can they start the transfer process/file cap exempt H1b process? ofcourse assuming that the pending H1b is approved which I am sure it will be. I have heard if I have an approved H1b petition but not worked on it, a new company can file a cap-exempt petition for me and I can start working with Oct 1 start date without joining the old company at all? Please advise..

    I want to join the new company asap after my current H1b is approved and preferable without having to join the old company as its another state and I will have to go there on Oct 1 otherwise. But if this is not possible,what can be done and how soon can I join the CA company??

    Thanks,
    Neha

      Hi Mr. Shah,

      I will recommend your services when company B decides to file for a H1b transfer.
      I just want to know right now how soon can I start working with the company B in CA and what process has to be followed for it. I have an approved H1b petition with company A with a start date of Oct 1,2013. I have never worked on an h1b/L1b before.

      Thanks is advance,
      Neha

        If you are in status, and shifting your H1B, you can actually start working for company B as soon as it is filed. Again I might have missed some facts, so please call us asap 510 742 5887.
