Default H1 Extention 3 year or 1 year

Experts:

I am going to apply for my H1 renewal. I have my I-140 approved and I-485 application pending from Aug 2007. Additionally, being from India, my visa number is retrogressed.

I got my first 3 year H1 extention from 2006-2009. Now I am appllying for my next 3 years H1 extention. However, I am seeing USCIS asking for client letter and copy of contract. Additionally, one employee of my company got renewal for 3 months only, since his project was getting over in 3 months.

My company gets Purchase Orders for 1 year duration only from my client, but I have a intent to renewal for up to 3 years. I am about to enter into my 2nd year of contract.

I am working with my lawyer to present my case the best way to ensure that we get a renewal of 3 years. Here is what my lawyer recently stated

>>>>USCIS is simply not approving H1 petitions in the IT consultant field if the Employer cannot show actual bona fide work for the duration of time requested. This arises when USCIS issues a request for evidence specifically asking for such items as contracts and work orders. Furthermore, USCIS specifically requests that the end client confirm work performed as they are the business receiving the benefit of the employer. USCIS deems this requirement as necessary to confirm that the employee is performing work in a specialty occupation as contained in the petition.<<<<<<<<<

However, I thought if any of you guys have any suggestions to ensure that we could get a 3 year extention??

As you have said, try to prepare all documents to prove that your project will be lasting for 3 more years. That should help you getting a 3 year extension.

Good luck
