      Dear Questioner,

      I have most of the employees just like you, they didn't get any issue as of today.

      1. I guess you are on 1st OPT, so if you change your employer, you need to update International Student Services office at your school by submitting your latest offer letter that is provided by new employer.

      2. During the extension, Usually we submit the last 2 paystubs of your current employer which will do good. In rare cases they ask for the whole year (where you need to provide experience letter or volunteer work you did for your old employer)

      3. Documents you need to submit are :
      1. Old OPT
      2. OPT Application
      3. Offer letter from new employer
      4. Check payable to USCIS

      Hope this answers helps you

        Beware that the new employer (Employer should be e-verified. This is the foremost thing from any type of employer.
