My I-140 was denied. Does this impact my H1B, which is valid for another year?


Even if the H1B extension was based upon the pending I-140, the denial does not disrupt the existing H1B status. This assumes there was no fraud finding against the individual in the denial. Of course, the concern with respect to the H1B is finding a way to be eligible for further extensions, when needed. (21.Dec.2015)
