Hi grues,

i am on 9th year of H1-B which is ending on november 30,2009. I-140 was just approved last month in may, 2009. I-485 is still pending.

question is, am i eligible to get another H1-B extension or not. in case i am not eligible ; what should i do just for back up plan in case I-485 denies.

still working for original employer.

thanks in advance to all the grues.

You can extend your H1B as many times till you have a pending I-485 application. And since you have a approved I-140 now, you are technically eligible for 3 yr extension of H1B. You are eligible for H1 extension so go ahead and do it.
