    USCIS Last action Rule and COS

    Thanks a lot. That means now i"m in h4 status? In this scenario..In applies last action rule right? already approved petitions will be honored by uscis. https://www.murthy.com/2016/06/02/travel-after-change-of-status-approval-with-future-start-date/ I will fall in scenario.. petition was approved when i was in US and traveled to out and entered back in US on h4 before 1st October. This is perfect example for last action rule.. what to do now? I wanted to make sure which status i'm in? H4 or H1b? how USCIS applied last action rule? do we need to reach out them and how ? Thanks.
  9. Point 2 --> what happens to period between filed date and approved date/start date of COS Let's say we file today 1/18/2017 and if it get approved after 3 months 3/18/2017. Do we need to continue employment till it get approved?

    H4 to H1b -- Yet to get SSN

    This is happening due to SSA Office couldn't find immigration record ( h1b ). They have opened USCIS Save Case and It has been pending more than two months. 1) How to identity/check what status currently we are in? ( H4 or H1b ) 2) How to follow up SAVE Case issues? I came to know people are facing similar issues due to missing/incorrect immigration records in SAVE database when they apply for Driver licence renewal.. Please help me what i can do in this scenario. Thanks In advance.

I'm trying to understand what are her options to come back either h1b or H4 1) if h1b gets in lottery and approved.. she can come back on h1b after getting h1b visa stamp only afer 1st oct 2016 2) If h1b didn't get picked in lottery- she can come back on H4 3) if h1b gets in lottery and approved. Can she come back on H4 before 1st oct 2016 on H4 ( currently she has h4 valid still end of sep,16 )? later can she able to change the status to h1b on approved petition?
