    This leads to one more question.
    Within what time frame can I use the time not spent in H1 status ?
    I would say the extension would have to be applied within 6 Years of your last held H1 status. So if you can find a h1 sponsor who can file a cap exempt h1 petition for you before April 2017 (6 Years from April 2011). The employer can show work and request for 3 Years H1 initially and extension later on (till the full 6 Years in H1 status is not exhausted).

    This is my opinion not legal advice.

    Need the forum's help in clearing a confusion.

    I had an H1B approved in December 2009 and I started working using it from July 2010-April 2011.
    After that I had my status change to L2 and worked using L2 EAD.
    In between we were out of the country for 19 months.
    I want to start working using my previous H1 and I wanted to know if has been reset for 6 years even though it had expired in June,2012


    Thanks in advance.
