H4 to H1

Hi,

 

My Wife came to US on L1B. She worked for almost 4.5yrs on L1B. Later her employer asked her to return back to India, that is when I applied for H4 for her. She has been on H4 for more than 15months now. I am planning to apply H1 for her. My question is if her H1 is approved, will she be getting 6yrs on H1 or only 1.5yrs.

 

Appreciate if someone can address this ASAP. Thanks in advance.

 

Regards

Sri

She will get 1.5 years. To get 6 years she needs to stay outside US for 365 days before a cap subject H1B is filed.
