L1 to H4 transfer

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions / comments on questions below appreciated.

1. My wife is on L1B visa and I am on H1B. Due to personal reasons, if she has to quit her job do we need to file for H4 immediately or she need not worry as long as she is not working anywhere or leaving USA.

2. Will she be considered out of status, if she quits job and her H4 is not yet approved.

3. An approximate time frame and cost of doing L1 to H4 transfer.

Thank you

A foreign national in L1 status would generally fall out of status as soon as she quit her job. Ordinarily, this problem can be avoided by filing a change of status application to H4 prior to leaving the L1 employer. While the application is pending, the spouse would generally be considered to be in a period of authorized stay while the case was pending.
