I am presently working on H1B
visa at a client site.
I came to the US on F1 visa
in August 2007 and completed my M.S. and Ph.D. in August 2013. I started working on my OPT with my present employer, which is a staffing agency and they sponsored my H1B visa and it was picked up in May 2015. My project with the client ended on August 2015 and I joined a new client in October 2015. My H1B amendment was approved in March 2016.
I have not gone for stamping yet. I plan to go to India soon for getting my H1B visa stamped.
My present employer has only provided me with my LCA and I-129. They have not given me the I-129 cover letter (letter to the USCIS). I am assuming that they might not provide me with all supporting documents that were filed for my H1B amendment. There is risk involved in going for visa interview without all required documents.
I want to know if I can get help from a law firm in any of the following matters:
1) If I join a new / different employer, keeping the present end client same, before I have gone for stamping, can I get help from your firm. Given the fact that my present employer might not agree to provide all documents, I am not sure if this is even possible. If it is possible I can start talking to a new employer about transferring my H1B visa. Then we can also discuss about engaging your services. If the new employer asks for certain documents which my present employer is not willing to provide, then I might not be able to transfer my H1B to the new employer.
2) I was considering the possibility of getting my documents from USCIS, that were submitted by my present employer at the time of filling my H1B amendment. Can you help in communicating with the USCIS and requesting for my documents ? I am not even sure if this is a possibility as per the law, so I am asking in an email.
If any of the above 2 routes are possible, please let me know and we can discuss about engaging your services. Please reply as soon as possible.
