H1-B to TN-1 to GC? My actual immigration lawyer is suggesting that we use TN-1 status to bridge the gap between the end of my 6th year of H1-B and PERM approval. Will using a non-dual intent status to fill this gap negatively affect a future employment based green card application? [more inside]

Is the US H1B visa only valid for one employer organization?
