I am working on L1 with company A and is valid until May 30, 2013. Company A will be applying for L1 extension sometime in May.
Company B is ready to sponsor H1 however they are saying they can not apply H1 with COS until L1 is extended by A.
a)Is current L1 validity(i-94) must be beyond Oct 1, 2013 to apply for new H1 with COS?
b)Receipt of L1 extension along with current I-94 work?
Worst case, can H1 be applied without COS?
Thanks in Advance.
