Your employer probably has hired an immigration attorney at no cost to you who will be able to answer your H1B related questions.
This answer is not intended to replace a consultation with an attorney and does not create an attorney-client relationship. Please do not contact me expecting additional free advice. If you contact me privately, I will email you an invoice for a consultation and will advise you only after the invoice is paid. Thank you.
