Wife's H4 ends before H1 start date


Recommended Posts

Hi Experts,

My Wife did her masters and graduated in June 2015 ... last year we applied for COS  to H4 as her H1 was not picked in lottery, She is currently working on H4 EAD...  Have applied for H4 and EAD renewal, but since there is no PP, approval may not come for 6-10 months. Also this year her H1 application got picked up in lottery... My doubt is will she be out of status from August to October this year.

Below is brief timeline of visa staus

F1 - student status (July 2013 to June 2015)

F1-OPT (July 2015 - to August 2016)

H4 (August 2016 to August 2017)  [applied for renewal on 4/13 but since there is no Premium processing, wont get approval in time]

New H1 start date from October 1st 2017 [application got picked in lottery]

Thanks for your time in advance
