Topic: PERM application for CTS (Cognizant) employees

Follow up questions -
1. If the H1 was filed for extension, and a 3yr extn is received, can we still apply for a fresh L1 after spending 1 yr at offshore? ie, applying for L1 while H1 is active.
2. If we decide not to extend the H1 and rather file a fresh L1 later, What are the cons? (One is that your L1 may get rejected, and that will cause delays, any other?)
3. If H1 is not extended, and a fresh L1 is filed after one year from offshore, would there be any impact on GC that has been filed previous year. I am under the assumption that once GC is filed, it stays in the queue irrespective of your Visa status. Is that assumption correct?

I understand none of us is immigration attorney here :) Not trying to complicate things, jut trying to develop a better understanding. Your thoughts are welcome!

Yes, agreed to that. The question is what to do with the H1. Keep it active by extending it but apply for L1A when one year at offshore is complete

OR

Dont file for H1 extn, and just file for L1A when 1 yr at offshore is complete.

Essentially, the question is, when you go out of US for 1 year, should you try to keep your H1 active or let it go?
Example (Hypothetical situation)
GC Applied in EB2 on May 2012
Max out Feb 2013
Decides to go to India
Perm is approved in March 2013. I-140 filed and approved in April 2013.

Guys, Any thoughts on my questions below --
If someone decides to go back to India while GC is in process but max out already reached; when in India, do they have to keep the H1 valid by extending it whenever I140 is approved or they can let go of that H1B and file a new L1 or H1 after a year from India?

Now this guy, who is back in India right now, should he file for H1 extn for 3 year, or should he not worry about extending H1 and just wait for 1 year in India and apply for a fresh L1 or H1? What is recommended? What are pros and cons?
