Thread: Expired H1-B visa

  1. #1
    Guest
    Hi hello,

    Can anyone give me a good advice? I went into United States at the last 5-month of 3-year duration on (my) working visa (H1-B) as an IT Consultant from the Philippines. My intention is to apply international patent under the United States Patent and Trademark Office, because I believe it is only in America where I can get helpful and efficient protection of proprietary rights for my idea.

    Since this invention is highly complicated, I was required to document in details the concept and its application. It took me almost a year to complete its blue print or manual which in turn becomes book or a bible of this totally new technology. This book contains more than 300 pages. In so doing I lost my legal status.

    Now, I have been waiting for the release of ---my--- patent certificate from USPTO. But my problem is, the H1-B visa granted to me has already expired, besides I am now running out of cash or fund. Could I extend my expired H1-B visa, thus I can work, anyway I already had my social security number?

    I am hopeful for your consideration. Any comment or advice is very much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    First you need a lawyer to help you in the filing of the extension of your H1B to show the seriousness of the company's desire to re-hire you.The rate most likely will be cheaper as it is only an extension and assuming you will be rehire by the same company.Remember you work on a different company requires another H1B.
    If you believe your work will revolutionize your industry,then try filing a different visa in your case.Normally, a good lawyer can argue for the extension of the H1B as your case have been thoroughly check in the processing.I don't see any problem in the filing of the extension as it always happen and sometimes it is not the employee's fault.But i am not exactly blaming you
    in the delay as it seems to me that the patent has nothing to do with the company that has sponsor the H1B.best of luck!
