    Hi

    My H1B is picked in this year lottery and the current status is still Pending.. "On April 11, 2016, we received your Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker, Receipt Number"

    1) Whens Should I expect the decision- Oct1 is the deadline or it can also stretch till Nov or Dec? Spoke to employer too he said he just received for one and that's too 1 month prior

    2) I am hoping to get an opportunity, Can I change the client/project in this case(same employer) and send a Premium processing request with this client letter ( Important- My H1 was filled with some other project that belongs to my employer company only). In this case how would I justify USCIS that I filled my H1B on the basis of some other project and now I am switching to some other project/client.. IS it safe ??


    Thanks

    Oct. 1 is not a deadline. Your petition may be adjudicated after that date.

    In this situation, it's generally best to upgrade the pending petition to premium processing before filing any amendments on an unapproved initial petition.

    But If I do premium processing and I don't provide client letter, chances are high to get RFE?

    Why won't you want to provide the client letter? What would you do if they issue RFE for the same?

    You wouldn't include any additional evidence with a premium processing upgrade request. If you initially did not provide enough supporting evidence, you may receive an RFE.
