From 2013 till 2020 Feb I worked on H1B with company A and then resigned and shifted to H4. Company A revoked H1B in June 2020 but I140 is still approved. H1B validity expires on 1/19/2022. Recently started working on H4EAD with company B. Due to personal reasons now again I plan to get back on H1B -
Question1> Am I still Cap exempt? For how long after validity expires can I remain cap exempt?
Question2> Or do I need to go through the lottery?
Question3> Current employer (company B) is filing H1B under the lottery and does not accept my case to be cap exempt, will this impact my existing I140?
Question4> If I get picked in the lottery can I140 through company A still be used for H1b extension/transfer?
