I worked on H-1 for a couple of years and then converted to H4 a few months ago and my previous employer has withdrawn my petition.
I am looking to join a new employer and again get on H-1 but I have some questions-
When I find a new employer, will he have to file for a transfer of my H-1 or a new H-1B petition for me? (since previous is withdrawn)?
Since the premium processing is not working currently, when can I start working for the new employer? I was told by many that I just need to get the receipt number and not the actual approval to start working. (There are not any employers who will wait for months to get approval).
