We started the PERM in 2009. Which got approved. Subsequently the I140 after a year plus pending got denied in Nov 2011. We filed for H1 extension premium beyond 6th year in Oct 2011. After 9month wait UCIS approved only untill Aug 20, 2012.
At this time we have a new pending PERM from Nov 2011. My H1 was set to expire on July 19, 2012. We don't know why they give till Aug 20.
I was out of country for a month in 2008 so we believe that they might have added those days.
At this time can we
1) Do a request to do a Hardship extension as my wife just deivered a baby 2 days back. It will be economic hardship to loose job. My employer is willing to file an extension but the lawyer is seemingly making it difficult. She is saying there is no legal days to ask for
2) Request officialy the out of country days towards recapture as we never reclaimed them on paper
3) Request a general 1 year extenion as the permanent residency is processing since 2009 however we don't have a pending case older than 365 days
