7th year extension on spouse GC


Recommended Posts



   Am in the 6th year of my H1 tenure. My employer just applied for my perm labor early last month. My 797 expires in Dec of this year. Am planning to marry a GC holder in August.


1. I want to know if I can get my 7th year H1 extension based on my husbands GC. 

2. If not are there any other options to maintain my status in US once I get married to a GC holder.

3. How soon should I apply for an extension to maintain my status.( I mean best case scenario if I get I-140 approval in November can I still apply for extension in Dec as my 797 expires in Dec)

4a. If I travel to India before Dec(before my 797 expires) Will my labor would still be processing?

4b. Can I apply for I-140 and extension while am in India.(As I travel before complete end of 6yr term I can still be eligible for that extension rt?)


Any help is highly appreciated.
