  • H1b RFE and OPT ext.

    Applied H1b and got RFE (still waiting for the update from attorney)
    my Opt expires on 3rd June
    Requested for i20 opt ext recommendation - university sent me i20 with H1B information with wrong opt dates.(i am guessing its cap gap i20)

    Current opt : start date 06/03/2013 expires on 06/02/2014

    The dates mention in i20 with opt recommendation
    opt employment approved : start date 06/03/2013 , end date 09/30/2014
    opt extension request : start 10/01/2014 , end date 03/0182014


    1. How much are the chances of H1b approval in case of RFE(i am currently working)
    2. the i20 that i received is for opt ext or cap gap?
    3. Was that a mistake by university with the dates? (spoke to univ they said my status is updated with sevis they need to open a case with uscis)
    4. if university adviser talk to uscis will it effect my h1b status?
    5. can i apply for opt ext now with the h1b status pending mention on i20.

    please advice and suggest what to do in this scenario.

          1. Provide supported documentation then you should be good. In Most of the cases uscis gives only 1 year approval after RFE
          2. Cap gap
          3. No, your sevis got updated bcz of H1b
          4. I dont think so
          5. If i were you i would apply for extension too inorder to be on safer side

            Do they send you a letter/email? My OPT expires on 19th and my STEM is still under Initial review ........
