Question around 5th year
I have my first i-797 approved as of Oct 2006, although i got my visa approved and came to country on H1b only in Feb 2007, so in a way my first I-94 started in Feb 2007 with company A. Company A also started my GC process in August 2008 (My PD under EB-3) and I cleared my I-140 around April 2009. Due to personal reasons I left company A in July 2010.
Now since July 2010 i have been working with company B (H1b transferred). The new H1b I-94 expiration date is July 2013 (this new 3 yrs of extension i have received is based on my approved I-140 through Company -A).
So in summary now I have H1B expiry date as of July 2013.
when i left company A, i left it at a good note. So i assume my GC process will continue with them.
Couple of questions:
1. If my present company( Company B) starts my GC process is there is a deadline in terms of time by which the process should start, is the 5th year deadline still applies. and if the answer is yes? then what would be my 5th year limit?
A. Is it Sept 2011 (based on my first I-797 was Oct 2006)
B. Is it Feb 2012 (As i entered country first time in Feb 2007)
C. Is it July 2012 (As my current H1b approved till July 2013).
D. Or is it no deadline.
