H4 to H1B to H4 COS - out of status.


Recommended Posts


My wife have a valid H4 for the period of March 2016 to June 2018.

we filed H1B for her on April 2016 and petition got approved from June 2016 to September 2018.

She doesnt get any job and her H1 was revoked January 2017 without running any single payslip.

We doesn't filed I539 for her as we got adivse from USCIS Field office not to do so as she is having valid H4.

Now, she got a job and when we are trying to file H1 , her comapny attorney saying she is out from status from oct 2016 as we havent filed I539 to cos from H1 to H4.

Please adivce what we can do now.

My current H1B is expring on June 2018, can I go ahead and file for an extension along with h4 ... is there any chance of H4 extension will get approve or is there any other better options I should do .  Please adivce.
