H4 Stay in US without H1 applicant


Recommended Posts


Am on H1B visa and my spouse on H4 Visa currently staying in US. My employer (HCL India) initiated my H1B visa and i have been deployed at HCL America. Now my project is about to complete in next few days and i have been informed by HCL US that i will be sent back to HCL India if they could not find any new projects. I will again come back to US once i get a new project might be in 1 or 2 months. Also i will be on HCL India payroll for the time am in INDIA and not on US payroll

Now my question is,

1) Can my spouse stay in US when i go back to INDIA and till the time i come back with another project

2) If Yes, then how many months she can be in US in this state if there is a delay in my return

My spouse is perusing a course due to which she needs to be here in US.

Please do reply to my questions so that i can plan my next steps accordingly.
