EB2 I140 Approved H1b extension beyond 6 year
I was working on H1B as a postdoc (biomedical research) in a nonprofit organization. I filed self-petition for EB2 I-140 on August 2012. My H1B expired on 17th Sept 2012, and then I shifted to H4 (dependent to wife H1B) and anticipated for I140 approval. I was waited till April 2013 and return back to India with my family (my wife also resigned ) due to uncertainty/waiting time.
On 10th May 2013 I checked online my EB2 I140 got approved.
Please let me know what are the options to apply for H1B extension? I did not utilize approximately one month recapture days (I was out of the US during my H1B). I want to know whether I need to complete one year stay in India before I come back to the US to get a new H1B or Can I apply H1B extension immediately if I find someone (same institute) to sponsor H1B?. or should I wait in India till the priority date available ? (Now it is in 2004).
