Default H1b expiring in 10 days, I-140 still pending

Hi All,

Need some piece of advice. My H1B is expiring on 07-15-08, On July 2nd my I-140 was filed in premium processing. My LC is not 365 days old, so i need I-140 to apply for 3 year extension of my H1. Since it takes max of 15 calander days for I-140 to go through it may protentially get approved on July 18th and the approval may arrive in a week after that. Since I dont have a basis for requesting H1 extension , I am wondering how I can stay in status from 15th July till i get I-140 approved.

Any ideas?

Appreciate your response.

Appreciate your response.
you can reclaim the vacation time that you spent while you were on H1B.
Please consult some experienced lawyer.

I was in similar situation during 2006. I applied for H1 1 year extension based on PERM approval. My LC was just 1 month old . Then premium processed my I-140, once I had my I-140, I then premium processed my H1 extension based on approved I-140. Finally got 3 year extension.
Hope this helps.
