Default H1b Extension(9th year) approved with less than 3years validity

Hi Everyone,
I had applied for my H1b extension (9th year) in July 2015(visa expired in Sep 2015), got an RFE(asked for more information about my current project, which I furnished the details, mentioning that current project is till the end of the year, and more work is in the pipeline) in Feb 2016, my lawyer sent a response along with Premium Processing on April 13th, and on April 25th I got the approval notice from USCIS. However, my lawyer just informed me that the validity period is only from Sep 2015 till Dec 31st, 2016. Lawyer has just got the email notice. They havent received the paper approval notice yet.

I am really frustrated, and disappointed that though I have I-140 approved, I am denied my 3 years of extension. I will now have to restart my extension process all over again at the end of the year(only 7 months left).

Has anybody experienced this? Anyway I can appeal against this decision by USCIS?

Default 3 years extension is dream now

I am getting every year extension without client letter. So this is very common now a days, since USCIS is giving very tough time to us.

Same here. With I-140 approved, my previous two extensions were for 1 year each.
