Incorrect!

Since he/she has been on H1 visa status before, he/she can start work after filing for new H-1B.

I agree with your lawyers statement. She will not be counted against the quota because she already has H1. Also I would recommend premium processing when she gets a job.

Pls comment

That is incorrect. It does not have to be approved before you can start working. My wife recently got her H1 to H4 to H1 approved and she started work as soon as H4 to H1 was filed.

Default Doubts on h1-h4-h1

My spouse was on h1 earlier, she is now on h4, however her h1 petion is expiring in Oct'09. Lets suppose she gets a job offer in Feb'10, does she have to apply for a fresh H1 or can she convert to H1 on which she was working earlier? My question is how long will she not be counted against the quota?

Also, can any new employer file for her H1 or does it have to be a employer who has held her H1 previously?
