H1 to H4 Change of Status request


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have my H1B visa valid till 9 July 2019 and my employer is already applied extension which will be more 35 days that is around till 13 Aug 2019.

My spouse is having valid H1B so I wanted to convert on H4 Change of Status post 13 Aug 2019 so that there will be no illegal stay in USA. I know I can not work but at least can stay in USA with my family.

So I need help on my below questions , 

1. Is it okay to apply both at this time like, H1B extension which is my employer already filled and at the same time H1 to H4 COS (Change of Status) ?

2. Can I legally stay in USA post 13 Aug 2019 while my H1-H4 COS (change of status) is in process ? or the COS status need to be approved to legally stay in USA post 13 Aug 2019 ?

3. How much time it will take to approve H1 to H4 change of status ? and when will be better to apply for it ?

Thank you again.
