Hi, I have a question regarding my H1-b visa. I was working for a company A (in Vermont) during 2012 to 2014, the same company submitted petition for my H1-b visa in feb-2013 (I was working with students' visa prior to this), the petition was approved and my visa period started from oct-2013, I lost my job as the company closed due to financial constraints in May. My employer wrote to USCIS for revocation of my visa (I guess "petition" is right word), USCIS cancelled my petition subsequently. I returned back to my country in 2014 August after wrapping up my household stuff and clearing dues (Did I stay too long, could it be a problem?).
Based on the information that you have provided it appears that you are cap-exempt and can be sponsored by another employer for an H -1B visa. At the present time, you are still eligible to re-enter the U.S. with a new H-1B visa if you find a new H -1B employer that files a petition for you, that employer's petition is approved by the USCIS, and you apply for and obtain a new H-1B visa. Please schedule a consultation with an immigration lawyer for additional information and assistance.

You seem to be cap exempt and you (through your petitioning employer) may seek balance time left on H-1B to complete six years.
