Thank you! Can’t the lawyers just call /email USICS and ask for a new notice to be sent ? Or is there some process that they need to follow that I am unaware of ?

Thanks. One option they are recommending is to file an I-824 which may take 6-8 months to get an update on. But I haven’t lost my approval notice - I just haven’t received it! Do you know of anything like this where an I-824 is filed?

I will do that. Thank you for your help :)

Seyfarth took care of me and they were amazing

@M1 - could you please provide more details ? did you work with Seyfarth outside the firm? My lawyers now want to file for I-824 and are saying it may take 6 months to hear back.

I am in advisory and seyfarth is the firm helping us out. They added bunch of new attorneys as soon as we started RFEs.

Hi All. My H1B with my current employer is valid till Aug 2022 and they are filing for an extension later this month. However, i just accepted an offer from another firm and they will be filing for the H1B transfer later this month as well. My question is, would it be possible for the new firm to file for my transfer + extension in one shot? Also, this is the end of my 6 year H1B cycle and my I140 with current employer is valid with a priority date of May 2019.
