Hi, My case has been pending at the DoS since Feb 22nd. How much time does it usually take? Should I email them? My understanding is that once DoS approves, I can file the H1b petition and if that is filed, I do not need to worry about leaving the country? My current J1 visa expires in June. Thanks!

Have you finally received the DOS recommendation? DOS usually takes 6-8 weeks to issue a recommendation. With the DOS recommendation, you can file the H-1B. As long as you file the H-1B prior to the end of your J-1 grace period, you can stay in the U.S.
