I have completed 4 years, 5 months with L1 Legal Stay in USA. Moved back to India in December 2014.
My question is, If i have a fresh H1 this year, cleared lottery and waiting for petition approval, will it be eligible for full 6years term ?, if i travel post December 2015 instead of OCtober 2015 Or, would I only be able to apply for rest 1 year 7 months as I have spent close to 4 years and 5 months in L1 already?
I think my question specifically is on how the cool off period(1 year) is defined: is it just the time I remain outside the USA before I enter again, or the duration from the time when I left the USA (in december 2014) and the time when I will apply my petition (April 2015)? …
