    Hello,
    I am a canadian who is living/working in USA under LIB. I had 3 yr, and extended it for another 2 years, but it is expiring in October 2015.
    I was told i have to return to Canada at this time, or to marry a USA citizen to stay in the country....
    I was recently approached by a USA company, and would like to work for them and was wondering if i could apply to change my LIB to HIB at this time....
    Is it possible? what steps do i need to do? can i file all this paperwork with potential new company without advising my current company?
    Please help!

    There are a couple of possibilities. Have you looked to see if you qualify for a TN visa? If so, that is a good way to go. If not, they you would have to try to get selected in next year's H1B lottery in April.

    TN visa??? no one has mentioned this to me at all!
    So- basically I cannot start working for this new USA company at all? or can they decide to sponsor for my HIB, apply for the lottery next yr.... but can I work for this new company during the application process?

    You might qualify as a management consultant.
