  • Applying for H1 while L1 Petiton is in progress

    Hi Everyone,

    My L1B visa and I94 expired in November 2013, and my company (A1) filed an L1 A petition in november, for which i got an RFE to which i supposed to reply back by May. I am in USA and i am trying through another company(A2) to see if they can file an H1 for me in April 2014. when i searched in internet i came to know about a concept called Bridging which i am really not able to understand. Assuming that my company(A1) reply back to my RFE in April, I am really not sure which result (L1 or H1) i am going to hear first. My initial understanding about Bridging is "Suppose if I get my L1A result first and is declined then my H1 application is also going to be rejected", I am ready to go back to my country after L1 rejection, even in that case also my H1 application is going to be rejected..? is there way(other than not replying back to RFE) to not to impact my H1 application with my L1A result..?

    Another case is , suppose if i get my H1 result first and it is rejected is that going to affect my L1 processing..? I heard about a process called consulate processing as remedy for these bridging issues, I am not sure what that mean can anyone please explain about that and to see if that is going to help me with these cases mentioned here.

    Thank you for your help,
