You’ll have to leave the country

Leave the country - no choice there, however if your firm is flexible you could work outside the country in your home country’s payroll. My husband did that last year as he waited for his i140 to come through.
Leave sometime before your 6 years expire. My husband left with a month left.

You can get a 1 year extension if your PERM was filed 365 days before your 6th year H1B anniversary. If this isn’t possible, you have to wait to have an approved I-140 to qualify for another full extension, but you can recapture any days spent outside the US and extend your H1B accordingly. Meaning if you’ve spent 120 days outside the US in the last 6 years you can obtain a 120 day extension.

Thank you for your response! Unfortunately, all time spent outside the country is already accounted for and the prevailing wage application was submitted with less than 365 days remaining.

U can extend your H1B once you file the perm per my lawyer. Pwd takes 6month and 3 month for recruiting. If you have 9 months left, you can still make it
