H1b to H4 COS I-539

Recommended Posts

My wife and I work on H1B visas and we had a quick question on timelines. 

My wife is planning to quit her job and change her status from H1B to H4 (as my dependent). How should we go about it? 

 If she quits right after getting the I-539 reciept, she will stop receiving paychecks which will invalidate her H1B. Can she continue to remain in H1B without pay till her change of status to H4 is approved (current timeline is 5-6 months)?


Appreciate your response.
