I am also wondering why Vermont is delaying the processing of H1B though it is not processing I-485s?

Please share your experiences.
Following is my observation from my last H1B extension from Vermont.

You should be concerned if the extension is not approved before the expiry of the current H1B/I-94. Even if you apply months in advance, USCIS won't approve it till you are near your "old I-94" expiry date.

My H1B has already expired. My only proof of H1B is the receipt of H1B renewal application.

So if USCIS takes an year to process my extension, what are the impacts to me after the current H-1B expires? Would I have issues in traveling?

Default L1s may be in luck

They are requiring them to transfer from L1 to H1 status for L1 extensions. This will also mean an opportunity for them to move on to better paying companies and green card sponsoring companies, when they get a H1B status. A list of well paying and greencard sponsoring companies can be found by googling for "h1b unsweatshop"

While your H1 is in pending state and you go out of the country, USCIS would consider it as 'abandoned'.
