F2 - H1B COS

Recommended Posts

My H1B was approved till 2023 but I lost my job due to COVID/Budget Issues and the last day was 9th Feb 2021. To stay in the US I applied for F2 visa as my wife is on F1 OPT. I have USCIS receipt notice dates March 16th and the application is in pending state as of now since its taking 6 - 8 months for processing . I also have i140 approved from my previous employer

My question is if I am able to grab a job, can the employer file switch of status from F2 - H1B with me in the US or has to file a Consular processing
