My current I-94 has already expired, I’m in the 240 day period with my current employer already filing for extension a few days before I-94 expiry.
Recently a very reputable firm has offered to transfer my visa for a direct role with them. Given the suspension of premium processing and long transfer approval wait times, I am leaning towards joining the new firm based on just the transfer filing receipt, before petition approval.
But I was informed that this would make the current extension petition a “Bridge Petition” which will impact my transfer petition. Could someone please shed a light on -
- Specifically how the extension (Bridge) petition would impact my transfer petition?
- Wont the current extension petition be withdrawn anyway once I resign from my current firm?
