  • L1 to H1.....urgent!!!....please reply

    I am working on a L-1B visa for company A. I plan to have my H-1B filed by another company B this year. However, due to my commitments at company A, I may not be able to join company B before Jan/Feb 2009. My questions are:
    1.) Should I apply for a "transfer from L1 to H1" or for a new H1? Does "transfer from L1 to H1" effectively means filing for a change of status?
    2.) If I apply for "transfer from L1 to H1", does my L1 stands void after 1st Oct 2008? (assuming my H1 is approved)
    3.) If I go for a new H1 (which seems a more sensible route to me), then can I start working for company B straightaway without getting my H1 stamped or without filing for a change of status (assuming that I do not leave US during this time).
    4.) Is there a time frame starting from Oct 1st 2008, within which I would have to join company B in order to retain my H1 (of course it will expire after 3 years automatically, but can I join company B, say, after 2 years from Oct 1st 2008?)

    Please answer these questions. It will help me a lot!!

    Thanks
