L1 extension rejected, possible impact on H1


I was in US for two years on L1B. When it came near to expiry, my company applied for extension but it was denied after an RFE. In the process I had to stay in US for above five months after my Visa had got expired (based on extension application). Six months after coming back to India, we applied for a new L1 which got denied again.

Now we are applying for H1 for FY2015. Is there any chance the above post expiry stay in US and/or the couple denials affect the H1 process? Considering though my appliction gets selected in lottery though.

Thanks in advance for any foresight.

You are allowed to stay up to 240 days beyond I-94 expiration date based on pending extension.

How many days did you stay inside US after your petition was denied?

Around 175 days. So I am good on that I hope.
