H4 to F1 .. I-94 expiring


Recommended Posts

I had applied for a COS from H4 to F1 on 5th April but have not yet received any reply . My I 94 is expiring on 7th June 2014 since my husband's passport was expiring on 7th June 2014. However my husband has now got a new passport and will get his I94 extended. He has a valid H1B visa stamped on his old passport till Oct 2014.

My question is
Will my COS process be affected in any way by my I94 expiring on June 7th?

Dont' worry about your I-94 expiry. Even I was in the same boat last year. As long as you have applied COS before your current H-4 I-94 expires, then you should be fine. Don't worry about the gap between H-4 and F-1 I-94's. In the I-797 that you get after your F-1 approval, it will have notice date and start date. Notice date is the date that USCIS received your documents. If that is before your H-4 I-94 expiry date then you are good.
