my wife and I are employed by the same company. I am in my 5th year of H1B as of 2012 and she is in her 2nd year. I have more work experience. Company filed PERM on her name since she has much better educational qualifications than I do. PERM was filed March 2012. My status is valid till June 2013.
*) Assuming her PERM & 140 get approved by June/July/Aug this year, can my H1B be extended based on that approval? OR
*) Should my PERM be also filed so my H1B can be extended beyond the 6th year (after June 2013) or is it not needed
