Withdraw h1b. I am in a convoluted situation now and need
Hello, I am in a convoluted situation now and need your advice here. I applied for initial OPT on March 12 and haven't heard back anything yet. Meanwhile "Employer A" applied for my h1b under regular processing which got approved last week. However, due to personal reasons, I won't be joining Employer A and have already told them. Currently, I have an offer with "Employer B". My question is: 1. Do I lose my F1 OPT status as soon as my H1b gets approved (Not stamped yet from India)? 2. Can "Employer A" still revoke my petition and things fall back to normal? 3. Should I tell "Employer B" about this situation and can they help me out?… read more
