I was recently off and wanted to understand what my options
I was recently laid off and wanted to understand what my options were while I look for another employer to sponsor my H1B. I has been roughly 50 days and I haven't gotten an employment offer yet. I wanted to see what I should do right now. Do I need to apply for a Change of Status to B2? Do I need a lawyer for this or is this something I should file on my own?There is conflicting information on the internet.
