    I am in a complex situation. Need some experts advice.

    I used to work for a company A from November 2006 to June 2009. Company A was acquired by company XYZ and I was an employee for company XYZ during the transition period and I got released from company XYZ on 15 June 2009. I transferred my visa to one consulting firm ABC. USCIS received my h-1b transfer papers on July 1st. Currently I am working for a client through the consulting firm ABC.

    Coming to Green card status, Company A also filed my green card and I got my I-140 approved on 14th Sep 2007.

    Recently I came to know from my friends that acquired company XYZ started revoking our old approved h-1bs because we are no longer employees of that company.

    I got an REF for my h-1b transfer filed by the company ABC on 20th Aug and I still don't know what is in REF.

    While facing all this changes happening in my life, I got interviewed for a full time position from company BBBB and they made a verbal offer. Also, this company promised me that it will apply h-1b premium transfer and start Green card processing ASAP.

    Given this scenario, I have couple of questions to ask.

    1) Am I in valid status?

    2) What if my H-1b transfer is rejected?

    3) Can I work for new company BBBB?

    4) Can I again transfer my h-1b to company BBBB while my other h-1b transfer is pending with ABC.

    Please give me some suggestions.

    Talk to a lawyer.

    1. Yes. Not a "status" but period of authorized stay. Read about "bridging" on the forum.
    2. You will be out of status and illegal if your I-94 is invalid due to a revoke.
    3. You can. They have to file for a H1b immediately and get an approval. Read about bridging. All underlying petitions need to be approved.
    4. Possible. Read #1, #3,

    I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.
