Do I need to go through the "cap" to transfer my H1-B from non profit to for profit organization. I have never gone through the "cap".

    Answered . Cannot be determined on the facts posted. What needs to be done depends on whether your current H-1B was subject to the cap or not. H-1Bs obtained through non-profits can be cap-subject or cap-exempt depending on the specific nature of the non-profit.

    You should retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case. You can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.
