Travelling to Canada while H4 to F1 Change of status in Progress

Recommended Posts

My wife is currently on H4 Visa which is valid till September 2020. We have filed an F1 change of status petition for her which was received by USCI S on June 29th, 2018.

My question is 

1. Can she travel to Canada by car and come back in a week without affecting her Change status of the petition?

2. While re-entering the US, can she still use her H4 visa & will the immigration office issue a new I-94?

Does she have a visa for Canada?

If so, she can use AVR to return showing the H4 I94 which remains valid on return. Her COS should not be affected as she is coming back on the same H4 I94. She needs to make sure she does not ask for a new I94. She also needs to get in touch with the ISA at her college and run this by them.
