    No I have not exhausted my 6years
    An employer can file a new I129 even while you are offshore. They would get a new I797 and subsequently you can use this I797 to schedule a new visa appointment or even leverage the drop box facility if you are eligible.

    This is my opinion not legal advice.

    I am planning to go back to india next month and planning to come back to US next year. Obviously I cant apply for my extension from India.

    Will I have to go through lottery process when I plan to come back after my visa expires, or I will be excluded from lottery and will just need to get a new petition.
    I heard that I wouldnt have to go through lottery but wat to be sure.
