My current employer has filed H1B for me in 2013 and it got approved. But the stamping was not done as the project that i was supposed to go got scrapped. And the current petition is going to expire in August, 2016. I have never worked in US till now. My current employer has never given me any docs related to the petition except the receipt number.
Now, my husband got H1B approved in this current 2016 slot. If i go with him on H4 visa, can i apply for H1B using cap exempt application from a new employer/consultancy in US? We might go to US by the end of this year, by which time my current petition could expire. Can we file a cap exempt application on a expired H1B petition?
