My travel history into USA. 1. From 11/30/2011 to 11/29/2013 ( 2 years ). 2. From 7/27/2014 to 11/30/2014 ( 5 months ) GAP OF ONE YAER 3. From 12/20/2015 to 12/28/2017 ( 2 years ) 4. From 3/3/2018 to 9/20/2018 ( 6 Months ) 5. From 9/30/2018 till date.
I have a MAXOUT date ( considering 6 years on H1B ) as OCT -19. My stamped VISA ends on AUG -19.
I need help below things :
1. I do have 1 year stay outside of US in my travel history. ( 11/30/2014 to 12/20/2015 ). Will this reset my 6 year clock on H1B ?
2. Can I file for H1B extension after AUG -19 for 3 months recapture period ? What are chances of getting this approved as I wait for my I-140 to be approved ?
When you feel the need to share extensive dates and details, invest in a consultation. Let the attorney take the time to review and consider all information before they opine and guide you. Good luck!
