What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? CA
Hi Lana,

I have a critical situation.
I am on H1B bench period of employer A. Since employer could not find any placement he is going to withdraw my H1B on Nov 10th. Company B is ready to transfer my H1 but he wants me wait until a placement is confirmed. Company B says that there is a " 30 day window" period without me going out of status. Please tell me the best way not to be out of status until I get new job.

How long could I stay in US legally without applying for H4? Is there realy a "30 days window" period where we dont go out of status when we change jobs between employers?
