Immigration Issues/H1-B- was fired from job-how long can I stay?
I was recently fired from my job for working on the side. I have an H1B visa with about 6 months left. In the meantime I am looking for a new job but friends have told me that I immediately fall out of status when my employment ends. Now if I do get a new job offer (I've been here 3 months out of status) will I have a problem with getting a new H1-B?
There is no grace period for H-1s. You can file new I-1290 and provide recent paystubs from your last company and hope they do not ask for more. As long as they do not find out about the work on the side or ask for too recent of paystubs, it should be ok.
