DHS Considers Changing Rules to H-1B Extensions Beyond Six Years

The DHS is considering changes to H-1B extensions beyond the six year max for foreign nationals who are in the green card process by reinterpreting relevant statutory language to give officers the discretion to approve or deny extension requests. No language has been proposed yet, and we are monitoring the situation for further developments.

Hopefully, this decision will be followed by others which will help to restore some balance to the Immigration Appeals Division’s consideration of removal order appeals based on misrepresentation.
