I am on OPT and my H1B petition was selected in the lottery. However, the project my H1B was filed for is about to end. If an RFE is issued, do I have any options? Can I move to a different project?


One in this situation should consult a competent attorney for individualized advice. However, this is a serious problem and will frequently lead to denial of the H1B petition. One possible option may be to find a new client in the same metropolitan statistical area (MSA). However, even this is frequently unsuccessful. (10.Jul.2017)
