I got a change of status approved from L1B to H1B.
I have received a I-797A with an I-94 attached at the bottom with a 3 year validity until 2014. This I-94 has the same Number as the one that I received when I came to the US. The older I-94 is valid till Dec 2012.
Which is the I-94 date I need to follow.
Also, the second page of the I-797A has a I-94 space with VOID written all over it. Its rather confusing to me, But I am assuming that this can be ignored.
The new one is the good, and controlling, one. The 'void' page is probably a continuation of what we call 'boilerplate' language from page one .. it is no big deal.
