H1B - H4 COS clarification on status

Recommended Posts

I am currently in H1B and planning to change to H4 EAD.

With regards to this say I file my H4 and H4 ead today and resign my firm this month end after receiving the receipt notice , my H1B would be revoked after 60 days period and had I not received an approval on my H4 would I be out of status ?

Also is there a 240 day period applicable when doing the COS from H1 to H4 as well ?

I appreciate any clarity on this doubt and thanks in advance

You will not be out of status once you get a receipt for your COS to H-4.

No 240 days period. That is only for H-1 extension.

I had my H1 to H4 COS applications received by USCIS on Apr 23,2019 and it two weeks since then but I havent received an update on the receipt number.

Some forums say that it takes 1-3 weeks to get the receipt number. Is that the case even with H1 to H4 COS as well ?

It would be much helpful if someone could provide a timely response on this .
