I am on L1-B Visa and my I797 gets expired on June,2013 but my I-94 is valid till 10th-sep,2013.
If I apply for H1 in 2013 Quota and gets approved I will be authorised to work in US from Oct 1st,2013.
But since my I-94 expires on Sep 10th , is it legal to stay till 1st-Oct in USA?
what are the options I have so that I can continue on H1 from 1st-oct?
No, you cannot legally remain in the US after the expiration of your I-94 in September. You'll need to take a 3 week trip somewhere outside the US.
You can also consular process in Canada or Mexico and come back. You can be admitted up to 10 days prior to October 1 on an H-1B visa.
