Need your help on my specific case.
Earlier i was in USA on L1B visa for Employer A - from 21 Feb 2009 to 31 Dec 2011. and Later from 15 Dec 2012 to 27 July 2013. total of 3 and 1/2 years.
In Sept 2011, Employer B filed for a H1B petition under 2012 CAP quota and it got approved without change of status. but I never worked for employer B.
In Oct 2013 while i’m in India, Employer A filed for a H1B petition under cap exempt quota using employer B approved h1b reference# and it got approved without change of status. but never went to visa stamping.
Now another employer C is ready to provide me a offer and willing to file for h1b petition under cap exempt. But I’m choosing not to travel USA until this July end, so that i will be outside USA for 1yr and thinking that i will get a full 6 years term.
My question: 1#Could you please tell me if my understanding in regards to the 6 years term is correct?. or i will get only the remaining (6-3.5)= 2.5 years.
2# what would be the best way to get a full 6yrs term on my above case. Any inputs on this is greatly appreciated.
