I am from India and have more than 16 years of experience. I am staying in US from 12/2010 and my I-140 is approved. Here is my current situation.
Lost job on H1B. My last working day is 5/15. I am in OH, which is my Client location, but my employer location is NE. I got 6 week severance. My I-94 expires on 8/24/2020. I read in some other blogs that, I can stay legally in US for 60days grace period+severance pay period. Is this true? Will I get 60days+42days(6-week severance pay) to stay in US?
I got one job, but it’s been put hold after verbal confirmation, so back to search again. I am trying to get the job by 7/14(60day grace period). If not, what are my options?
Can I stay until my I-94 expiration till 8/24 based on 60days+42days(6-week severance)?
After 60days, if I get the job also, do I need to go out of US and enter back? If so, I need to file my transfer in premium to get it approved within 2weeks. If I go out of US before my transfer is approved, will they process my transfer? In the current situation, all consulates are closed. What else can I do?
If I don’t get the job, can I apply for COS to B2 at any time before I-94 expiry date? or it should be before 7/14 (60day grace period)? and do I need to go out of US and enter on B2?
Please help me with these Qs.
Thank you for your support.
