I am currently a student and working for a company under CPT. My company filed H1B for me this year and it got approved. However, my position is recently cut and I need to leave the company at mid-June. My boss told me I can start to look for jobs and promised me they won’t revoke my petition. Here is my question:
Since my current program will end in late June, can I transfer to F2 (my husband is F1 right now) while my H1B is approved?
If I transferred to F2 before 10/1, will my status automatically change to H1B from F2 on 10/1?
Can I maintain under F2 after 10/1 till Dec. and find a new company to file H1B for me? will it be cap-exempt? Does my current company need to do anything, before and after 10/1, so that my new company can file a cap-exempt H1B for me?
Thank you so much in advance!
