Please help me understand my options:
1- Left company last August after 5.5 years (approved I140). H1B expired Nov 2011 and H4 approved Dec2011.
2- would like to go back to work, but all threads I've read indicate that I cannot due to H4 approval after 6 years of H1.
a) is this accurate?
b) if so, do I have to leave the country for 1 year before I'm allowed to work again?
c) if not, can the new company use my approved I140 to petition for new H1B?
