H4 Validity is different than that of primary applicant H1


Recommended Posts





I have a querry about the H1 and H4 extention validity dates as they are diffferent


Mine(H1) and my wife's(H4) visa  expired in October 2015.

So an extension petition was filed. Both me and wife are in the USA.

Extension petition for both H1 and H4 were approved.

But the dates were different.

after extention petition approval H1 is valid from Oct 2015 till April 2017

But H4 is valid from Oct 2016 till April 2017


Unfortunately we never checked the H4 validity start date and me wife stayed on in the usa.

We came to know about ti tomorrow. 


I am not really sure what my options are. I would really appreciate any help with this regard.
