  1. Hello, I am on H4 from the last couple of years and living in USA. My current H4 is valid till end of 2019. Recently my H1B is approved for 3 months which was filed in the last year (2018) and when i received the I797 copy, i see that the name was printed incorrectly. When I went to apply SSN, they verified my DL & Passport and they asked me to correct the name in I797 copy and reapply for SSN. I asked my employer to correct the I797 copy, they mentioned that its not doable and need to file the next extn for the name correction. I am looking for the new project to file the extn but have been asked to provide the SSN for the opportunities which i am receiving. So i am stuck in between this now. Meanwhile my H1B is expiring soon on 30th Sep 2019. I wanted to know how could i retain my H1B status? What if I don't get the new project before the H1 expiry to file the H1B extn? Does my previous H4 validity still works? Do I have to reapply for my H4 status again? Can I join the other employer with the current H1B without working for the current employer. Please let me know your answers as soon as possible. Thanks, SBARS
