H4 to H1 change of status


Recommended Posts

Hello ,

My wife was on H4 and this year her H1 Change of status got approved in Oct. But in the approval notice , the validity start date is mentioned as May 2016. As this was a COS , she obviously could not start working before she got the the approval. My questions are as follows 

1. Will the period from May - Oct counted towards her 6 years of H1 ?

2. Can this create any problem in future (during stamping or any other event in general) as she will only have pay slips since October.
