  • I-797 original form lost, H-1 B stamping issues

    Hello all,
    You people are doing a great job in this forum. Please provide me with your valuable suggestions. My H-1 B is approved but my employer lost the I-797 form of the H-1 approval (I retained a soft copy of I-797) . After bugging my employer for N number of times he filed a I-824 petition for a duplicate I-797 form. The application is in initial review.

    1. How long does it usually take for processing a I-824 application?
    2. Can we do a premium processing on I-824 application?
    2. Is it OK to attend the Visa interview for H-1 B with a copy of I-797 form?
    3. When is the good time to attend for a H-1 B visa interview after Oct 2014. I will have to travel overseas before Jan 2015.
    4. Also, my OPT extn got approved very recently. when do I need to report to the school DSO about my H-1 B approval and request for a cap gap I-20?
