  • OPT extension under review, H-1 B approved, how about cap gap application now?

    Hi all,
    I applied for my OPT extension on April 17th, 2014, and it's still under 'initial review'. My current OPT expired on 19th June, 2014. And also my H-1 B was selected and got approved. My questions are:

    1. I am still legal (OPT extn in review) and working as a contractor, but my employer says he cannot run paycheck until my OPT extension is approved. Is that right? I am still on legal status and have my OPT extension application receipt from USCIS.

    2. How can I convince my employer in this regards?

    3. Can I still apply for cap gap now, as my H-1 B is approved?

    4. Or as I already applied for OPT extension, am I not eligible to apply for capgap?

    5.If I can apply for capgap, please let me know the procedure.

    6. Is this capgap application has something to do with the USCIS or just my school DSO?

    7. If I don't apply for Cap gap now, and wait for my OPT extension process, and if that gets rejected (hopefully not) by any chance, then will I still have an option to go for cap gap?

    8. As of now, do I need to necessarily let my school DSO know about my H-1 approval?

    9. Based on my current situation, what would you best suggest me to do? wait for OPT extension application or go for capgap ASAP?

    Thank you all.

              I agree with you but at this point he is good to go right if he wants to apply for cap gap

                    Does Cap gap application has something to do with the USCIS or just the school DSO ?
