perm was filed at the end of 5th year on H1b. The application went into audit. At that time the lawyers said that it even if its denied, they will appeal and file for an h1b extension for an year. Finally, the application got denied and they appealed. Got the h1b extn for an year. Lawyers are suggesting to initiate a new perm by withdrawing the appeal. My questions are:
1. Is it wise to wait for the appeal?
2. In the event the appeal is withdrawn, what would be the status of perm application (WITHDRAWN or DENIED). Pls note that the perm was initially denied
3. around an year is left after 6th year h1b extension. It will take atleast 6-7 months to file a new PERM. There is no guarantee that the application will be approved within few months or it can get into audit. If the new perm filed within the 7th year is in pending status, can h1b be extened further given that the first denied/appealed/withdrawn perm was filed 365 days before 6th year h1b end date.
It will be great help if the experts can help.
