Sponsoring GC to H4

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I am on H1B and with my military service, i got naturalized. My wife was on H4 visa. Now that i became US citizen, may i know what would be the status of my wife? She's still considered as H4? Or do i need to worry about her status before sponsoring the PR.

 

Thanks.

You can't be on H1b status and a US Citizen at the same time. 

And please stick to one thread per topic. 

I am clear with my status. Just need to understand what will happen to my wife's status, as she's on H4 visa.

Your wife ceased to be a derivative beneficiary of an H1b, and thus is no longer on H4. She appears to be out of status. 

Unless a procedure exists for military spouses being eligible for immigrant status, you would have to petition her for either an IR/CR1 visa if she is overseas, or Adjustment of Status if she's physically in the US.
