    RFE COS H4 to F1

    Hi Parent documents with affidavit showing relationship is ok which univeristy for MBA ? why you are late after 1 year study for cos ?
  13. Hello all Good Folks, I was on F1 visa enrolled in a phd program from Fall 2009.I was in univeristy till Jan 2010 completed all coursework except thesis credit hours Now I have applied change of status H1 TO F1( to complete thesis work which will take at least 1 year )on June 18 2013.I got Receipt Notice (Form I-797) . I am guessing 3 month time from June 18, 2013 .So it will be in 18 Sep ,2013 . On cover letter My COS to be effective from August 8,2013 and I-20 date start date is August 13. Now I am waiting. I have question here.Pl help 1.What is risk the the officer will ignore this letter and deny or approve from an Later date say 18 Sep ,2013.? I already enrolled for Fall 2013 only for my thesis credit hours. So Can I go to Univ in Sep 2013 to study? Well My Univ DSO says "It doesn’t matter when your change of status petition is adjudicated - you won’t need to return to your home country." 2. My employer is not co-operating with me. So I Plan to inform him as soon as approval comes. Then I will wind up in 1 week my h1 job to start F-1 3. I can plan to quit job mid august and join school even if I do not get an approval by the time classes start (Aug end). But In my cases this doesn't make sense since I will enroll thesis credit hrs only with exception as full time student.I do not have to attend any classes. thanks in advance
  14. Hello, Here is the current situation. I was on F1- OPT status on phd when employed. I couldn't finish thesis in time so change to H-1. Then I change back to F-1 to complete thesis If I want to do job after finishing this long study Can apply for OPT again called post completion OPT for remaining 17 months (month 29 month - 12 months)? Can apply for CPT again since I used CPT for 9 month previously too Or Can I activate my H-1 and start work as soon as I get I-799 COS F1 to H1 receipt. If it denied then I have to go back and come with visa stamp and resume same job Thanks in advance for your consideration and help.

    H1B to F1 and back to H1B

    here is the answer Generally, an individual who has previously been approved for H-1B status and has counted against the H-1B cap and has H-1B time remaining out of 6 year is not counted against the cap again for subsequent H-1B extensions or change of employer petitions. If your friend have exhausted 1 years on H1B then change to F-1, then an employer can file an H1 petition for him at any time.He can start immediately after H1 approval and not wait for 10/1 If you have been counted for the H1 quota in the last 6 years, you are not counted again, Changing to some other status F1 and back H1 will only give you whatever remainder time is left in this case 5 year .
  16. Detail Explanation of "Well My Univ DSO says "It doesn’t matter when your change of status petition is adjudicated - you won’t need to return to your home country." This means change of status petition can be adjudicated any time after Start date August 13. For example it may approved in Oct 13 , 2013 , but you can start study as wish.But if it deny 1% chances then you will be out of status from start date Aug 2013 to Oct 2013 and you have to go back for student visa
