Default Help with I-129 form from H1-B transfer

Hi there,

I'm currently helping my new employer fill out the I-129 form for my H1-B transfer. I have a couple of basic questions about the form:

1. Section 2, question 2: I assume for a transfer to a new employer, the correct answer is (c). Am I right?

2. Section 2, question 4: What would be the correct "Requested Action" for a transfer of an existing valid H-1B to a new employer?

Any help, much appreciated. Thanks.

I don't have the form in front of me, so I don't really know what the
question is or what option (c) is. If this question is about why you are
filing, the answer should be something like "change in employment".

What are the options? I think the answer is probably something like
"extend stay in the USA" but I'm not sure.

Part 2, question 2 has these options:

(a) New employment

(b) Continuation of previously approved employment without change

(c) Change in previously approved employment

(d) New concurrent employment

Part 2, question 4 has these options:

(a) Notify the office in Part 4 so the person(s) can obtain a visa or be admitted (NOTE: a petition is not required for an E-1, E-2 or R visa).

(b) Change the person(s) status and extend their stay since they are all now in the U.S. in another status (see instructions for limitations). This is available only where you check "New Employment" in item 2, above.

(c) Extend or amend the stay of ther person(s) since they now hold this status.

Thanks

Change in previously approved employment. Actually, legally (c) and (d)
are identical.

The second answer is also (c).
