Hello, I am James. I will be helping you today. I do not get a salary here. But just like you, I want to get credit for doing my job. And you are the only person who can help me get credit by giving me a positive rating before leaving this site today. So please do not forget to do that.
Also, if you want me to be your personal immigration Expert, just write “FOR JAMES" at the beginning of your question and I will be sure to answer your questions as your personal Expert.

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I was in US in 2005 last. After that I had been outside us till today, except two B1 visits
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
OK thank you. Kindly remember to rate my customer service before leaving the site. Otherwise, I do not get credit for helping you with this, and like you, I want to be rewarded for my efforts.
QUESTION: Can a fresh CAP exempt petition be filed by some other employer for remaining 3 years.
ANSWER: Yes, a cap exempt H1B can be filed in this scenario, but you will be admitted for the time remaining on the original 6 years. You cannot get a "fresh" 6 years unless you are willing to be subject to the cap again.
I know these issues can be confusing. If you want to talk on the phone for a fee, I can send you an offer for that.
I hope I have answered your questions. Kindly rate my customer service with a positive rating so I get credit for doing my job. This is very important. You can do that by giving me 3 or more stars, or any of the smiling faces. And you can keep asking questions even after you have given a rating.
REMINDER: You are not rating the state of the law or the outcome of your situation, which I cannot control. You are rating my customer service. Believe me that I always want to give you good news. But if the outcome is not what you wanted, blame the government and the law, not me. I am only a messenger.
Negative ratings are reserved for Professionals who are rude or unprofessional. Giving me a negative rating does not help you get a different answer or outcome. So do not give a negative rating if you need more help, or if I misunderstood your question. Instead click REPLY so I can continue to assist you.
A BONUS is appreciated, if you feel I've earned it.
If you have questions in the future, write “FOR JAMES" in the question and I will be your personal Expert in this category.
Thank you!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
