Change of status F-2 to F-1

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I came to US in July-2016 on F-2 dependent visa. I got admission to a graduate school and my classes start on August-23, 2017. 

Since the change-of-status from F-2 to F-1 visa takes around 3 months, could anyone kindly suggest if going to Mexico/Canada would be a better choice?.

Since a trip to India would incur expenses, I wanted to consider this option. I am not too sure if it is safe but.

Also, my husband has got his H1 picked in lottery and is waiting for his approval notice. Can he travel before OCtober-1 without affecting his status?
