I am currently in US on L1B visa. My current L1B and its I-94 expired on Feb 6th 2013.
My employer applied for extension and it is in RFE status. I have to submit documents before May 23rd 2013. If i submit documents by May 23rd, if it gets rejected chances are i have to leave US by June end.
I also applied for H1B visa through another Employer under premium processing and it got approved, but i cannot work on it till Oct 1st 2013.
a) Am i bound to respond to L1B RFE by May 23rd? Can i not respond to RFE and stay untill full period (240 days from expiry)
b) Is the stay period of L1B 240 days after expiry? IF so, 8 months from Feb 6th will be Oct 6th, whcih i will be good to work on H1B staring oct 1st.
