I filed for H1B Extension in Premium Processing, working in EVVC model. End Client has provided a letter with project duration.
Moved from Client A to Client B (Current Client), however no amendment was filed by by employer as within 50 mile radius.
Job Title on previously approved Petition : Computer System Analyst
Job Title on extension Petition : Software Application Developer
Reason for NOID : Change is the Job Title requires filing an Amendment, which has not been filed prior to joining the Client B. Date NOID received : 20-Aug-2018
My employer says there is a very high chance of H1B extension to get denied because Amendment was not filed. However, my previous petition has I-94 valid until Jan'2019. Following questions:
1. Am I allowed to stay in the country as my prior I-94 is still valid ? If Yes, can I find another client project and work there.
2. What are the chances that the previously approved petition valid until Jan'2019 will also be revoked.
3. Are there any other options to maintain status (if the above scenario) makes me Out of Status once H1B extension is denied.
Appreciate your help and guidance.
