My H1B was approved 2 months ago and I desperately want to make a switch to a new firm. Current firm has been making me miserable for quite some time. When is the earliest date I can quit?

Once you have the approved i797 in hand, I'd think

I'm not too sure, but considering that your h1b technically isn't valid till Oct 1, you might have to wait till then

If it is your first time h1b, better to wait for 3 months/ 3 paystubs.

Sounds good, thank you!
