Applied H1B visa in Aug2012, still in process

My H1B is still waiting for Attorney response. So wanted to know how much will it take to get the FileNo. and when will i need to apply for Visa date…

Will this be for 2013 cap or later?

I don’t think your petition was submitted to USCIS in August 2012, since the cap for 2012-13 quota was met on June 11th 2012. Your employer/attorney must now be waiting for 1st April 2013 to submit your petition.
