I am currently on an H1B working visa and I applied to another company. My last day with my employer A was last Friday but unfortunately the lawyer who was supposed to file for a transfer of visa for my next company failed to submit my application earlier. I applied to company B two months ago and gave the lawyer all the required documents. His secretary just informed me awhile this afternoon that my petition has not yet been filed. Company B has already given june 6 as my start date so I already resigned from company A.
Will this mean I will be out of status since they still have not filed my petition? I am an occupational therapist and how long does it usually take before an H1b transfer gets approved?
