Travel is a different issue and you should ask your new employer’s immigration team. But as for your status, the h1b unemployment days counter will start on feb 5 until feb 13. (max out is 60 days) so you should be fine.

Thanks OP. If I leave the US on the last day with my current firm will tht still count towards my 60 days grace period?

My wife just asked me why don’t H1B folks protest the way DACA/BLM folks do. All I could say was we are afraid of repo cushions and will not have widespread support like the other movements, the odds that even Indian Americans will come out to support us very low

Anyone here on L1 visa? How did you deal with your extension process. Did you go back to your home country or can I make a vacation out of it and go to a country that has a short waiting time?

Would you let go? I have struggled in the US for 10 yrs, battled through O1 and 3 layoffs, finally my current company submitted PERM last yr. Then this yr, my dad became extremely ill with stg. 4 cancer. Imagine a lighthouse in a storm. That’s my dad to me. Now I have to choose: back in the US, the lonely life but (comparatively) great income, or stay to spend the definite time with my dad, let go of the “American Dream” and re-build my life after my dad’s decease. Which would you let go?

Also , for dependents Accenture will not sponsor the visa which is almost 5000 per person. Any insights on this would be useful.?

My husband is now refusing to submit my green card application (I'm the one paying for the whole process). We got married a year ago and he knew I needed that and was ok. My work visa is expiring soon and I'd be able to renew it by myself and keep my job, but cause I married him, now I can't. I literally would have to divorce him to get it renewed. Everytime I try to talk about the topic he refuses the conversation saying I'm with him just because that (not at all the case). WHAT SHOULD I DO?
