I have received an RFE for the time-period of specialty occupation. Should I ask my employer to withdraw my H1B
I'm working for a consulting company. I have received an RFE for the time-period of my specialty occupation as my company doesn't have SOWs beyond Dec 31st 2019. It's likely that my company won't get SOWs for the next year until Oct 2019, so my H1B end date will probably get truncated to Dec 31st 2019(Only 3 months) if approved. Please note that I have applied through change of status.
Now my company is planning to file for an H1B extension in Nov 2019 after receiving new SOWs and then they will be doing this every subsequent year
1] What will be my visa status between Dec 31st and my extension approval date(In case of premium processing suspension)?
2] Can I switch employers between Oct 2019 and my extension approval date?
3] When should I travel to my country to get my H1B stamped? After/Before extension?
4] Should I go ahead with this process? Is it safe for my visa status? I have my OPT till 2021. I'm I sabotaging a safe visa status in a hope for H1B and reducing my stay? Should I ask my employer to withdraw my H1B application? Is there a charge involved which I'll have to pay?
