My wife started work on Jan 6th 2014 and her OPT expires on Dec 20, 2014. So essentially she is missing one year completion with the parent company by 2 weeks to be eligible for an intra-company transfer to Canada. Are there any options that we can explore with USCIS to extend the OPT by two weeks to complete one year so that way she becomes eligible for an intra-company transfer. Can they make an exception?
She was also a co-op program associate with the company for nearly 6 months from Jun '13 to Dec '13 before she started full-time in Jan’14. Can they make an exception on this basis and count the co-op time towards full-time?
Also, as an FYI she is not a STEM student.
Really looking for some good recommendations here. Thanks in advance!
