F2 to H4 conversion

Recommended Posts

me and my spouse are on F1 and F2 visa respectively. I plan to travel outside US to get H1B stamped for the first time but she is not travelling. What will be her status when I re enter US on H1B ? if she is still considered F2, will she face issues during her H4 visa interview later on ?

She also needs to file a COS if she does not want to travel.

Once you H1B starts then she cannot be in F2 since your status changed. She must have petition for COS H4 and get it approved or else travel with you and come back to USA on H4 visa stamped.

I am not an expert just my opinion. Please consult experts.

you can apply for her change of status from F2 to H4 using your H1B approval in US only. If it simple process but is taking 5-9 months for approval.
