Greetings! I am currently in US on [b]L1B.[/b] We have applied for I-94 extension and received RFE notice from USCIS two weeks (2/13) ago and is due for our response. In spite of this, my company is filing for [b]CoS to H1B[/b] now. Highly appreciate your clarification on vagueness of the case – Presuming that the final outcome of the extension will be out by around 1st week of April' 2013 – Case -1: Extension Request is ‘approved’. No issues I this case. Case-2: Extension Request is ‘Denied’; I will have to travel back to India. Subsequently, CoS from L1B-to-H1B would be no more in question, Since L1B itself got obsolete and wouldn’t exist (it's just my guess...may be wrong). In this case, please clarify – petition for ‘[b]COS to H1B’[/b] is still as good as fresh H1B? Or would that be rejected since current status is denied. Thanks in advnce.
