H1 to H4 - I539 Pending - Travel


Recommended Posts


My wife changing her visa status from H1b to H4, since she is already in the states we applied for form I539 (Change of nonImmigration status)

Here my question is---

1.If I539 is in pending/processing stage and spouse travels out side the US, will that application considers abanded ?

2. when they go for h4 visa stamp, do spouse need I797 approval for changing her immigration status (from h1 to h4) OR Husbands h1b approval -I797 notice would be sufficient for her to get visa stamp.
