    Answered . No you cannot use a H1 from 2010 to transfer. You are quota exempt and can file for a new H1. Will be able to start work after the H1 is approved. You should qualify for H1 till 2014, if you were on H1/L1 since 2008.

    Answered . You should be able to convert L1 to H1. This is not a legal advice or solicitation, and does not create an attorney-client relationship. Consult an attorney.
