Hi All,

Now i'm on 7th year h1 based on my RIR, last week My RIR got denied.

My employer filed 140/485 based on my approved perm labor. So what option I have for my further extension?

i think u can get anothe rH1 ext...based on pending i140 (associated with PERM)..
Talk to ur lawyer abt it.

I don't know if there is any rules when I140/485 is pending but the labor was not filed 365 days ago.

Just pray god for I-140 premium processing to be reintroduced. You need to get the I-140 approved ASAP and then apply for 3 year extension when the dates retrogress in August. This has to happen before your 7th year H1B expires. I'm assuming your PERM case is filed recently. If it is filed more than a year ago, then you can get 1 year extension without I-140 approval. Good luck!
