I am in the same boat. My 7-9 yr extn will be up in December. My PD is Dec 2005 EB2. I would like to apply for 3 yr extn of H1. I am thinking if I should just renew my EAD instead of renewing my H1. Also what would be the filing fee for H1? $320 or $320 + $1500?

Thanks.

in Dec 2007. The priority date is in Jun 2007 and EB2 category. Applied for renewal of EAD and AP recently.

I am on H1b and it is due for renewal in 3 months. I will be on H1b for 4 1/2 yrs by that time.
I hope h1b will be issued for 3 yrs since pending 485 for more than a year.
I think renewing is helpful just in case if there is any issue with 485.

1. Is it worth to renew H1b?
2. How much will it cost to renew H1b?
3. Since the h1b is issued for 3 yrs based on pending 485. If any issue with 485 will it impact H1b?

Thanks in advance.
