    first-time I got my H1 in 2007 thru lottery. Since then I am in and out of US for 2-3 times. Everytime I was outside US for more than 1 year. Periods are like this. US Stay#1: Sept-2007 to Mar-2009 ; US Stay#2: Nov-2010 to Jan-2013. US Stay#3: May-2014 to current date. So those gaps when I was outside US is more than 1 year. Also employer is not same since 2007. This is 3rd employer. for 2nd employer I had amendment in May-2014 before coming to US. My current petition is valid till Feb-2016 and extention is to be filed. Can you please tell me how much period is left on my H1B. Has it got reset because of being outside US more than 1 year?

    You may recapture every day spent outside the U.S. If you want a complete reset on the six years, you have to go back under the cap.
