H1 to H4 to H1 with approved I-140

Recommended Posts


I have an approved I-140 (approved in 2015). I am on H1 and got terminated on 07/31/2020. I am planning to go on H4 as my spouse has H1. 

Few Questions 

1) If I go on H4 and keep looking for H1 petitioner, what is my status? What do I say when prospective employer asks me? 

2) how easy or hard is it, to convert from H4 to H1? 

3) If I convert from H4 to H1 and file for my green card, does my priority date remain valid ? or do I lose my date because I moved to H4? 


Kindly advise

1. Maybe the I-140 sponsor will have a job for you. You are basically looking for H1 sponsorship and your employers petition will be not subject to the cap.

2. Getting an H1 sponsor is the  problem.

3. Your employer files for your GC. You retain the PD for a subsequent filing.
