Does this sound like your topic?
I am on L1B expiring in July 2013. My company has applied for my H1B which is selected in lottery but not approved yet. H1B would start only from Oct 2013 hence my company is planning to apply for my L1B extension in June 2013.
A) Assuming my L1B is approved, I can continue to stay in US after July 2013. Will my status change after October to H1B automatically? or do I have to get stamping done?
B) I learnt that your status is the last action taken by USCIS. In this case how will I know what was the last action, L1B extension or H1 approval?
C) If I have to switch after October 2013 to another employer on H1B, will I have to go out of US and come back with an H1 stamp assuming my L1B is extended and I dont leave USA.
