    Hi Ron,

    I am currently on an H1B visa and am thinking of taking the start up/self sponsor route for a H1b transfer. This might be my last ditch option considering my employer is giving me a hard time.
    Do you think your firm could assist me with this? Is there a check list that you provide to your clients in getting a successful H1 transfer to a start up doing a self sponsor? What are the typical costs like? Note that this will be a H1B transfer and not a new H1. I already have my H1B approval till 2018.

    Also, what happens to my approved labour(PERM) and 140 thru my current employer. Do I get to retain my PD? Can the start up also file a PERM? Looking for some valuable advice.

    In theory it is possible to self-sponsor an H1B but in reality it is almost impossible.
