Can i apply H1 Transfer and change of status at a time? (Currently I am H4)

Recommended Posts

Hello Sir,


I applied my H1 with one of the US based consultant when i was in India (Apr 1st 2014), later I got married and came to US on H4 in June month.
In July my employer applied amendment for H4 to H1 conversion with the existing petition. My H1 got approved recently (Early September) but my i94 dint come along with the H1 approval documents which means my change of status from H4 to H1 has not been approved.
As my H4 to H1 didn't get approved, I have two options
1. I will have to travel to India and go for H1 stamping
2. Apply for Change of Status in US
I am preferring second option (change of status).
My question are:
1. Can i change my employer right now? (is it possible for another employer to transfer my H1 visa and change of status together),
2. if yes, Can you please suggest what are the documents that are required?
3.  Is there is any duration for applying change of status from the date of H1 approval notice?
Kindly help!!!
