Hi, my friend has a situation whose I-140 has been approved since 1 year. Yesterday we got a news that all the Priority dates will be current in July 2007. He was in the process of transitioning to a new company and his papers are with lawyers to file for H1-B extension for 3 years based on his approved I-140 and PD of JAN-2004 as per June Visa bulletin (Please note that you can only get 3 year extension when your PD is not current).

Question : Is he still entitled to get 3 year extension if his papers are filed before July starts, i.e. in June wherein his PD is not current. OR he's going to get one year extension?

Please respond as its very important
