CAP H1B while H4 is in process

Recommended Posts

My wife’s h4 expires 7/30. We already filed for her h4 extension and its in pending status. In the meantime her h1 got picked in lottery (cap fy 2021) and submitted it last week in premium. We are Waiting for the result. If h1 is approved it will start from 10/1.

  1. If both h1 and h4 are approved before 10/1 i am assuming she will continue to be in h4 from 7/30 to 9/30 and automatuically move to h1 starting 10/1. Is this right?
  2. If h4 is not approved by 7/30 but h1 is approved before 7/30, will she be considered out of status 7/30-9/30?
  3. If h1 is approved but h4 gets only approved after 10/1, will she move into h4 automatically? How do i avoid that?

Thank you in advance.
