*Applying for F1 after H1B (6 Years) * URGENT*


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Here's my scenario ...

My H1B (6 Years) is going to expire at the end of Sept 2012. Labor application will be filed in April 3rd week. Going by the current dates, I still have a good chance of getting labor approved and I-140 approved (In premium) by Sept.

We have applied for Family Visa (1-130) through my wife and she is going to be citizen in another 3 years. Need to maintain status for 3 years.

Is there any other option other than F1 in this scenario. If I apply for F1 when Iam still on H1b will my H1B be cancelled ? Not sure of the timing when to apply for F1. If Iam still in country can I apply for COS (Change Of State) from H1 to F1 ? how long does that take ?

Thanks in Advance.
