I am currently employed in the US with a L2-EAD permit. I have a unused and expired H1-B visa(petition approved and visa stamped) through my previous employer. The H1-B petition was approved in 2008 and visa was valid until june 2011. But I had to quit the previous job without utilizing the visa. Hence I did not attempt a transfer when I started working in Mar 2011.
Now is it possible to apply for a COS from L2-EAD to H1-B??
Will this application be CAP exempt on the basis of the previously approved petition?
I do not know if my previous employer cancelled/revoked my petition after I quit. Is there any way to find this out?
