Hi My wife is on H1B ....and she took maternity leave for Dec 2016 and Jan 2017.

Her company allows FMLA unpaid leave upto 12 weeks.

Now she is thinking of extending FMLA for one more month for Feb 2017.

Her company is ok with that but not sure if there is any impact on H1B status.

She had a normal delivery. Can she take 3 months FMLA with out disturbing H1B status. Please let us know.

You need to talk to your employer's attorney.
