My employer is supposed to file my 3 year Extension based on I-140 in Dec this year( Dec 2007) but my Licences expires on Sept 2008, So I will I be just getting the extension till Sept 2008 and Not 3 year extension.

Any Idea on that
I have already submitted my driving license to my lawyer.
Please Let me know because I was couting on that I will get 3 year extension this time
I think i saw a query similar to one you have posted but as far as I know,it is the other way around.DMV will ask you legal proof the USCIS approved petition to limit the duration of your DL or photo id till the expiry of your approved petition.These changes came in effect after 9/11 .I had a Cal DL issued in 2000 expiring in 2005 i had changed from Cal DL to VA DL in 2004. They issued me DL upto 2010 ,just last year (2006) my wife went to get photo ID she was asked two identifcation ID ,proof of legal status and proof of residence. After a few hassles she was given a photo id till Feb 2008 when her H4 expires. Frankly I see no dependency of DL duration to the extension duration. It is quite possible DL is another form of ID issued by a State authority and proved you residency. Thats my take.

That just sounds ridiculous... what does your driver's license have to do with your H1B extension?
It's true that the length of your H1 extension determines the validity of your DL i.e. if you get an extension until 2010 the DMV will only issue a DL valid till 2010, but the opposite is not true, unless we're living in the Twilight Zone.

I just got my H-1b renewed and no-one asked for the drivers license.

Maybe your lawyer's office just has a policy to ask for copy of everyones license for their records. Lots of professional buisnesses do this (physicians, lawyers' CPA's office etc.), but this is for their internal records and to be used in case of collection issues, for non-payment of their bills and such.

I never heard this before. I got the 3 year extension after 6 years but I never submitted copy of Driving License. I don't think the extension has anything to do with Driving license expiry date. The extension effective date starts from your previous H1B expiry date.

My H1 extension is under process. I had applied in Dec 2006. My DL expires on May 6. Is it possible to renew my license with the H1 extension receipt?. Is it possible to do Premium Processing now?

Pending H1 transfer/extension petitions can be upgraded to premium processing by sending another form (for upgrade to premium) and the premium fee of $1000.

Some states accept H1 extension filing receipt notice. Other states dont. Depends on the state regulation and state laws. You should check with your DMV / DPS of New Jersey and ask them before you make decision to upgrade your H1 petition to premium. Maybe they will renew your DL with receipt...so check before you spend that money.

Not sure about NJ, but in NY they want to see your i94 that is attached to your approval notice if you dont have a valid stamp.

You do have time for premium processing but also find out locally if you can go back with an expired DL (expired within a month or so) , in most DMV I think they permit extension of expired DL. I am not sure about it, but You may want to verify.

Exclamation Heelp

Hi folks,

I'm a desperate house spouse(H4) and now not only I can't work but I can't drive either because the current visa expires on May 10 and the new extension is not here yet. The folks at DMV didn't wanna give an extension for the DL unless I bring a new I 94. Now the poor H1 has to do 2 jobs

1. work his but off at work to get GC
2. drive the kids up and down, do the shopping, etc etc because the desperate h4 can't move a finger.

Anyone in the same barrel?
Please give some toughts.
