H-1 Transfer

I have an H-1B Approval Notice that is valid until next year.I have been working with my present employer for two years, but have found a position with a different company. Can my H-1B approval be transferred to this new company?

It is possible to apply for an H-1 transfer with USCIS, provided the H-1 holder is maintaining legal status and fulfills all the requirements.

I would like to thank Mr.Rajiv and his team (especially Anna Baker and Fran Fischer) for getting my H1B transfer with extension. It may sound simple but both my I-94 and Visa were expired for more than 240 days and my extension with the previous employer was pending with USCIS for almost 9 months. We were really impressed with the way the case was prepared and presented to the USCIS. Anna Baker and Fran Fisher was very supportive during the entire process and answering even the simplest of questions promptly. I was surprised one evening when Anna called me at 7:30 PM to discuss about the case. That shows the level of professionalism by LORK's team. I would recommend LORK for all immigration needs.

My name is Rahul Patil. I am currently working at Restek Corporation in Bellefonte, PA as a Research Chemist. My company had hired your law firm to transfer my H1 visa from Penn State University to them. My H1 was transferred without any problems. I was very satisfied the service I received from the staff of your law firm. My company was also happy with the services and would hire your firm for any future immigration work.

Can I Join My Old Employer If The H-1B Transfer Is Denied?

I have an H-1B visa stamped from employer A and the employer B has filed my H-1B (Transfer visa) based on the H-1B petition visa from employer A. Now, my H-1B visa filed by employer B is on RFE and my employer A wants to file the GC based on my previously approved i-140 from employer C. Below are my questions:
1. Can I reject the offer from employer B and still continue to work with employer A on current Visa if my H-1B from employer B is approved?
2. Can I reject the offer from employer B and still continue to work with employer A on current Visa if my H-1B from employer B is denied?
3. In case my visa from employer B is rejected do I need to leave the country and come on the stamped visa which I have now?
4. Can I ask employer A to file my Green Card even if my H-1B from employer B is rejected or approved without any issues or do I need to provide any visa documentation to employer A on my petition from employer B being approved or rejected? Can I immediately file the Green Card with employer B (after joining the employer B office) if my visa from employer B is approved?

1. The answer is No. There is no advantage in going through for-profit or non-profit that's just irrelevant.
