  • Employer change and OPT options

    Hi all. I am currently working on OPT for company A, who filed for my H-1B this year and it was approved. My questions are:
    1. Can I change my employer to company B before October, 2014. (can I transfer my H-1B)
    2. If yes, please tell me the procedure.
    3. If yes, is it safe to do so.
    4. If no, when is the good time to get my H-1B transferred to company B.
    5. Also, my OPT will be expired by mid June,2014 and I applied for OPT extension which is still in 'Initial Review'. I think I will have 180 days period from the date I applied for OPT extension to be in status. Please correct me if I am wrong
    6. If the processing time on my OPT extension goes beyond what is expected, can I apply for CAP-GAP. Can you tell me if I can apply for cap gap after applying for OPT extension, which is still under review.

    Thank you in advance.
