Generally, a dependent spouse’s H4 status is tied to the H1B status of the principal spouse. Therefore, as long as the principal is in valid H1B status the dependant is eligible for H4 status. In a situation where the principal is in valid status and the dependant is in the U.S. and has filed a timely and non-frivolous application to extend his/her H4 status, that dependent will be considered in a period of authorized stay. For a more detail discussion regarding your specific circumstance, please contact a qualified U.S. immigration attorney.
