In USA on H1B and dependent (H4) is 30 weeks pregnant

I am a H1-B holder & currently in USA. My wife is travelling with me and she is on H4 (dependent) visa. After we came over in USA she become pregnant and currently she is 30 weeks pregnant. But, my current project is about to complete. So, my current company is pressurising me to relocate now. However, Doctor (wife's) has advised not to relocate until delivery considering the complications she have.

Now, my questions are:

1. How do I legally stand if my company kept on pressurising me to relocate and Doctor advised not to relocate until delivery.

2. Being in H1-B visa is it legal to keep my wife to my relative's house (considering wife's condition) and I relocate to different state in USA?

3. Can they terminate me now? In that case what would be the status for H1-B and H4?

4. My current company is sponsor of my H1-B visa and if my company terminate me, can I stay here until delivery (as Doctor advised) in job less conditions? How does the visa sponsoring company legally stand if I remain in USA as a job less condition?

 

Thanks

Yes u can keep.

3. Can they terminate me now? In that case what would be the status for H1-B and H4?

in very less likely condition they can terminate...U can talk with them. no once can terminate for a 2 months away...u can ask them to run the payroll and u can pay the taxes for them.

employer should pay you and your taxes even if you are on bench, please don't join shady consulting companies, find real employer.

before they terminate you, find some real employer and transfer your H1B and you will be safe after termination both of you will be out of status and you cannot stay without job and pay on H1b, if you continue stay it will accumulate towards illegal stay and you might get banned for re-entry.
