I read in this article H1B 60 days Grace Period USCIS Rule, Lay Off, H4 EAD Validity - AM22 Tech where it mentions in the section " H1B Grace Period Start Date with Severance Pay" that grace period starts after severance period as i live and my job was in California.
My layoff date is Nov 13th, 2019 and i got severance pay for 7 weeks but it was paid as a lum sum amount in 2 phases and the last severance amount was paid of on Dec 31st, 2019.
My new employer has filed the LCA and as of today i am waiting for it to be certified and hope to be approved by today Jan10th or Monday Jan 13th and then on the same day H1 would be filed and it would be received by USCIS on Jan 14th.
I think this question has been asked before too, pardon my ignorance.
Question is as Nov 13th was given as my layoff date, so Jan 12th 2020 would end my 60 days grace period or grace period would start after 7weeks Severance pay which i got on Dec 31st, 2019?
