A: This is not an accurate question. You need to provide more facts to get an answer. In order to get an answer for you, I may ask 1) has the H1B been filed? If so, when was it filed? If not, when will it be filed? 2) Is premium processing required for the H1B petition? 3) What date was put as starting date on the H1B petition? 4) Are you currently working? 5) Do you have any immigration petitions pending? etc. I feel sorry, but I cannot give you an answer based on assumptions. I would recommend you have a consultation with an immigration attorney.
