Hi Peter,

Thanks for offering to do this. According to new USCISs rules , if you are on H1b and you were let go, you can be in the US two months to find a new job and have your H1 transferred.

What happens if you stay say slightly over 2 months and find a job later? In what ways can you run into trouble ?

So the 60-day grace period wouldn't apply meaning that you would have to leave the US and then reenter to start working for your new H-1B employer. And if this period of time after the 60-day grace period went on for a while, it could impact your ability to get visas in the future.
