    Hi,
    I have an unique situation and I need help in making a decision.

    I applied H1B transfer from A to B last month in regular processing and started working for client X and H1B transfer is still under process. Client X is at New Jersey but as it is a work from home job the LCA was applied to Pennsylvania (where I live).

    Now I got a offer from client Y who is in New Jersey as well (distance is 50 miles from Client X) and hence I am thinking to move to Client Y from Client X. For this job I need to move to New Jersey (no work from home).

    Want to know whether this will be an issue as the H1B transfer is not yet approved? If an RFE comes, god forbid, I may not be able to produce the documents from Client X as I will be no longer working there.

    Need advise ASAP please.

    Your petitioning employer must file an amendment for the new job. They should do this ASAP. The USCIS will have to approve the first petition before they are able to approve the amendment (second petition).
