I don't know much about the H1b and its process but generally there is always a way to get new original copies of an approval notice from USCIS (with a sizeable fee of course) if the employer won't release it. Make an infopass appoint at your local office.

The H1-B requires a sponsering company, to begin with.

Sure, you got a sponsering company, but they have no job for you.

That H1-B visa is tied to that company - it's in THEIR H1-B Visa Count.

It's possible to get it 're-homed' to another company, but it's tedious, and involves negotiations between a new company and the H1-B sponsering company. Plus you need to find a new company to handle all of that mess.

The sponsering company has no legal requirement to give you your paperwork, none at all.

They can give it to another company, if the negotiation is successful.

I'm not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV - I only know of H1-B from sponsering workers in the past.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Is your wife a US citizen?


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

Why would she need a F1?

Get a job somewhere else and get them to sponsor you.

If his wife is a US citizen she can sponsor him. I should have said 'spouse' - I was assuming the OP is male, but could also be female.

Still begs the question, spouse is F1

Who can an H1B alien (foreign national) work for?

H1B aliens can only work for the petitioning US employer (sponsor company) and only in the H1B activities (job duties) described in the visa petition. The sponsoring US employer may place the H1B worker on the worksite of another employer if all applicable rules (e.g., Department of Labor rules) are followed. H1B aliens may work for more than one US employer, but must have a Form I-129 petition approved by each employer.

What if the foreign nationals circumstances change?

As long as the foreign national continues to provide HB services for a US employer, most changes will not mean that an foreign national is out of status. A foreign national may change H1B employers without affecting status, but the new H1B employer must file a new Form I-129 petition for the foreign national before he or she begins working for the new employer. The merger or sale of an H1B employer's business will not affect the foreign nationals status in many instances. However, if the change means that the foreign national is working in a capacity other than the specialty occupation for which they petitioned, it is a status violation.
