Hello,

My labour got approved but we still have to file for I-140. My h1b is going to expire on May 2007.

Can I get H1b extension based on Labour approval? If not, is it necessary to file I-140 soon.

Thanks in-advance for any update.

I think if it has been 1 year since your your LC was filed, you can get an extension based on that.

if u file for 140, chances are that it will get approved before may 2007 is high. If u have an approved 140, you can get 3 year extension. If you seek extension based on labor, you will get 1 year extension. I recommend u to apply for 140 (if possible premium) ASAP. Even otherwise,you are fine to get an year of extension.

yes, if your labor was filed more than a year ago you can get an extension. However I would advice you to first only file 140. get it approved. these days it is fast. and then apply for h1b extension in january. you will be able to get 3 yr extn instead of 1 year. it will save you much extension headaches and legal fees.hope this helps.
