H4 To H1 change of status while H4 is in extension.


Recommended Posts


I an urgent issue need to be resolved. I am currently in US on H4 visa since 1 year. My Husbands H1 and my H4 visa expired on July 31 2011, however we have applied for an extension and received Receipt for it.

Can I apply for change of status from H4 to H1 visa while H4 is still under initial phase of extension. I have an employer who is willing to sponsor my H1.

Is there any other way to handle this situation?

Any help or suggestion is greatly appreciated.
