I am currently on L1 (from A) and in US and will be filling for H1 (from B) in April 2015.
When will the change of status be filed? Let’s say if its filed in month M, then can I travel outside US from M 2015 to Oct 2015?
I believe, if everything goes well then H1 start date will be Oct 1, 2015 and on that day I should be joining B. Please confirm. Do I need to do anything here?
Should it be applied for change of status or normal h1b sponsorship? What are pros/cons?
