I came to US on a L1B visa (Employer A) and later got my H1 with COS approved (Employer B).
I could not join Employer B on H1 Visa so, I chose to go back to my home country and get a new L1B stamped (Employer A). There was a lapse in COS and me going out for stamping - from Oct'07 to Jan'08 -> I don't know if I was out of status or in illegal status (working for L1 employer even though I was on H1 technically).
Later in 2008, my Employer B said that he had withdrawn the H1 petition by writing to USCIS and sent my original H1 approval copy.
Now, If I wish to join Employer C, can "C" file a COS on my original H1 petition along with transfer to C ?? (Since I never worked for B on H1 petition, I hope my current paystubs would do good) ??
Is my H1 still valid even though Employer B has withdrawn/ revoked ? Will I exempt from CAP since I already have approved H1 petition even though I never used it ?? I still have 2 years left on my six year term...
Experts views, highly appreciated.
