My employer filed my H1B Amendment on June 2016 in Regular and it is still pending. My H1B Visa and I94 expires by Dec 31, 2016. I have requested my employer to file my extension in Premium as I had to travel to India to bring my kid in February. I was told that it is risky as there are possbilities of
Amendment getting denial and because of which my H1 Extension will be revoked or
USCIS will keep my extension on hold until Amendment is approved
I would like to know if i can go ahead and file my extension in premium with my Amendment is still pending.
