There are two circumstances where a visa H1B holder can have the period of H-1b visa status extended beyond the currently imposed 6 year maximum limit. The first circumstance is if you have filed a Labor Certification application or an I-140 petition a year prior to the expiration of the six-year limitation and the Labor Certification or I-140 petition is currently being addressed. This circumstance may need you to file for a request extension of up to a period of 1 year.
The second scenario is one which doesn’t require a full 365-day requirement, and it is where you have an approved petition and your immigrant visa number is currently not available because of the visa retrogression. Under this scenario, you may be allowed to extend your H1b visa at 3 year intervals, and this can be made better when you have a H1B Visa Lawyer Coconut Creek by your side.
