I have joined a fortune 500 company for fulltime employment 6 months back. They have applied for my H1B based on my previous employer's approved I-140 and got H1B approved for next 3 years. After i joined this new company, my previous employer withdrawn i-140. I have been told my HR department that they are applying for my H1B Amendment for material changes though my location and client did not change. I have few questions regarding H1B Amendment. 1) Do they file for a new H-1B petition as part of this Amendment or is it just a correction of existing H-1B? 2)Do They need my previous employer’s I-140 for this amendment? If yes, what are my options as my I-140 has already been withdrawn by my previous employer? 3)is it absolutley necessary to apply for H1B Amendment, at all? thanks in adva
