Default Approved I140 and H1 Extension

Hi
My H1 is due for extension this year end.
Valid period of H1 remaining is 1 1/2 year since extension

I understand that H1 extension has to go through the rigorous procedure nowadays.
It needs client letter stating that project will last for 1 year.
Getting such letter is not possible.

So having I140 approved makes thing easy for H1 extension? Or same process for h1 extension is followed

Please reply

Thanks
Abbey

Having I-140 approved only makes you eligible for a 3 yr extension, provided you submit all the documents required in normal H1 process. So, you still have to go through the same process.

Same process for a H-1 even if you get an I-140 approval, they may not require the client to say that the project will last for 1 year, i have seen that it is sufficient to say that the project is extendable. Ofcourse you might get an officer who is unreasonable, in which case you can file an appeal, no requirement in the law to ask for an 1 year contract to get a H-1.
