Immigration Issues/H1B after L1 ext. denied

Question
Hi,
Our L1b visa extension was denied on Mar 2 2010. Can you let us know if we can file a H1b visa immediately or is there any timeline between denials and filing a new visa?
Also will this denial affect future visa prospects?
Thanks in advance.

Answer
Hi,

Due to visa cap issues, an H1B petition can be filed by your employer no earlier than April 01, 2010. The employment start date will be October 01, 2010. You cannot remain legally in the U.S. in the interim. Once the USCIS approves the H1B petition, you will apply for H1B visa stamp at a U.S. Consulate in your home country.
