    wow..thanx for your excellent direction......a little while ago i consulted with an "immigration attorney" who gave a very non-commital answer.......do you know of the top of your head where i can see this in writing, is it any where in the INA.?

    Yes, any non-frivolous application/petition to change or extend an alien's nonimmigrant status - while it's pending and until a decision is made - is a lawful stay authorized by the Attorney General.

    Your initial thinking was right then. A new Form I-129 petition should be submitted with Company B as the petitioning Company or Organization.

    Business"A" the one which i currently have a visa on is an outright sale to a party not connected at all to us.........Business "B" is a franchised fast food restaurant (a well known one)

    What is the nature of sale, is it an acquisition or a merger? Is the business interest of the two companies identical?
