    Use my unstamped H1 while I am on H4

    Hi, I have an employer who is willing to do H4 to H1 COS. My spouse who is on H1 is doing H1 transfer at the same time. Will there be any problem with my H4 to H1 COS due to this? Can i submit my spouse current I797 & paystubs or do we need to provide new I797 for this COS? Thanks Umabala

    Thanks Jai.. Companies who contacted us were saying they don't do COS.. We will just keep trying. Yep we do understand the risks going through consulting companies. That's the reason we posted in this forum to find out are there any good consultancies :).. Thanks for the info..

    Use my unstamped H1 while I am on H4

    Problem here is we need to do change of status which is from H4 to H1.. I don't think any full time company does this we need to go through consultancy for this. We are looking for an employer who can do this H4 to H1 transfer. Could you suggest any good employer ? THanks

    Use my unstamped H1 while I am on H4

    Hi Jairichi, I am in US currently. We tried to contact multiple employers but most of them are not willing to do a H4 to H1 transfer as i have only 3 + years of experience. Could you please suggest any employer who can do a change of status? I am getting multiple calls for full time opportunity but they are willing to do only H1 transfer. Thanks for your help..

    Jairichi - Thanks for your reply. It got approved on 10/1/2012 and it is valid till 9/30/2013. I will be travelling to the US after Sept 30th, probably around Oct 2nd week. Can I then expect to start working in november mid if all goes well?

    With regard to my original question, a person who is familiar with my situation told me that my employer cannot file for my COS from H4 to H1 immediately after I have found an employer and a client (after clearing the interview). According to him, I have to wait for the next H1B quota to start and he mentioned I cannot make use of my unused H1. Could you please confirm that my employer can file for my COS if I go in the month of October. My H1 expires this sept end. Can I start working immediately or can I start working only from the month of April?

    @jairichi: Thank you very much for this information.
  9. I completed my masters in CSc from the US and I had an Indian company take care of my H1 while I was working in the US. I was to have my visa stamped during my travel to India this December, sponsored by that consultancy, but for whatever reasons I decided to stay back and look for opportunities in India. My better half was also on H1 and she decided to stay with me in India but now her employers are pushing her for H1 extension so that they can have her back and in fact went ahead with it. Even I want to come to the US and work due to personal reasons. So can anyone please tell me whether if I come on H4 along with my wife now, can I make use of my unstamped H1 even after it expires this Sept 30th? That is, can any consultancy sponsor my H1 even though I will be on H4? Also, how long will I have to wait before I can start working again? Thanks, UmaBala
