Possible issues at POE...H1B is stamped in Dec going to US in Mar.

Frisco, TX |

Hi,
I received great help from this forum.
Currently I am serving notice period in my current co.till 5th Mar.
My H1B is stamped on 17 Dec and I am going to Us in first week of Mar.
I have a letter from employer stating my employment will start on arrival in US. And my project is an inhouse project.
Will there be any issue at POE as I am coming so late after I got stamping?
How to deal with the situation?

3 months isn't "so late".

You should be fine.

To confirm, talk to the lawyer that did the H papers.

It depends on how old the letter from the employer is. If recent, absent any other issues, there should be no problem.

The letter from employer was issued in last week of Nov-2012 when I was travelling back to India. will that be fine or should I get new letter from employer?
