Getting a new Job Offer
I am getting a new job offer and i applied my GC this July just like most of us here. Is it possible to accept the offer and transfer the H1B visa, then try and negotiate to start later as soon as 180 days are completed?
What happens if i transfer my H1 now ... less than 180 days..and do not start with the new company, will my 485 still be processed? Lets say the H1 is transferred, but i plan not to use that H1 and stick to the same company where my H1 is, will that still be ok?
I am confused, its a good offer, and i dont know what to do. pls help..
An H1 transfer is not really a transfer. Just that you'll get another employer who is willing to and who can legally hire you. It does not mean you HAVE TO work for the new employer.
All the options you discussed here are safe for you.
1) Get H1 'transferred' now and join the new employer after 6 months are over
2) Get H1 'transferred' now and don't join the new employer.
Just make sure your new job description is similar to your LC job description and it has been 180 days since you filed your I-485.. Chill
