    Since your H-1B was never approved, you will not be cap exempt for this year. Your earliest start date will be October 1, 2013. I would advise you to retain an immigration attorney to begin your new petition as soon as possible. Best of luck.

    Isaul’s Answer

    You went out-of-status when you left Employer A. The facts are unclear as to why you think you are still on H-1B status. You should consult an immigration attorney as soon as possible to determine if your H-1B can be transferred. Best of luck.

    Isaul’s Answer

    1. You would have to contact your company's immigration attorney to resolve this situation.
    2. Another employer is always able to petition for an H-1B on your behalf.
    3. It should not.

    Best of luck.
