Hi all,

 

I need few clarification on change of status from H4 visa to H1b:

 

1. Traveled to US on H4 visa (6months before) with valid H4 visa stamped.

 

2. Recently got H1b petition approved under cap-exempt (previously i had H1b visa stamped from different employer whch i never used) based on my previous petition detail.

 

3. Received I-797A with attached I-94 New.

 

My wfe (presently on H1b visa) leaving US since her assignment got over.

 

My question is,  can i stay in US with approved petition(validity till oct 2015) with out my wife ? since i came on dependent H4 visa ....

 

I heard that Dependent cant stay not even a single day when primary applicant leaving the country. Please suggest.

 

I am plannign to search the job here with my approved petition ...

 

-Thanks

No you can't stay here on H4 if H1 is no longer in US.

What do you mean by job search?? If you have a H1 approval that mean you have a job, don't you??
