Change of Status from H4 to F1 and H4 extension


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,


My spoue has recently applied for a COS from H4 to F1. Based on the findings from the internet and USCIS site the processing time is around 2-3 months.


My question is whether I can apply for an H4 extension simultaneously while the COS is still pending. My H1 and my spouse's H4  are expiring in 3 months and my employer will have to file an extension soon. Please suggest.

Hello everyone,

I am currently working with my OPT permit that will expire August. I have to change my visa status from F1 to H4. I have currently applied for a new passport, and that will take a couple of months still. 

Will it be okay if I submit my I-539 form with the expiration date on my previous passport, and then later submit my renewed passport date?

How should I go about handling this situation?

Thank you.
