I am working in Company A. Company A filed my H1 in this year (2016) and is currently in lottery picked status (received I797, Notice of Action). I am not willing to travel to US for 2 years due to personal reasons. I am planning to switch from this company A, who sponsored H1, in 2 months as the company is not performing good. I will switch to Company B but not transfer H1 to this company B. Later, after 2 years I will find a new employer say Company C in US, get the Visa stamping done with Company C and then travel to US.
In this regard, following are my questions:
Is it legal to switch a company (willing to switch from Company A to Company B) without transferring H1. Will the H1 be still valid after 2 years? What all H1 related documents are required from this current company before I resign? When can I expect all these documents in the current process?Is it ok if I get my Visa stamping done with my new employer after 2 years?Will the current company A cancel my H1 or take any legal action? I am aware that they can cancel my H1 petition.After 2 years, will I fall under Cap exempt? Can Company C file new petition under cap exempt in my case?
