View Full Version : Perm denied and appealed - want to change employer

Hi, My H1 visa maxed out sometime in May 2013 and my Perm was applied one year before my max out date. based on that i got one year extension and my current I 797 is valid until June 2014. My perm labor was denied and my employer appealed it for reconsideration some time in April 2013. I heard that DOL may take upto 2 to take a decession on that. As my I 797 is going to expire in June 2014, my employer is telling they will apply for another year extension sometime in Feb 2014. If I get the extension, can I change my employer and have the new employer apply for Green card?

I think Yes because you are basing it on your expected extension, but would wait for the experts to chime in.
