H4 extension with new employer

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


My wife's I94 expires on Apr 1st and I have my H1 extension filed with current employer A and H1 transfer filed with Employer B. Please note that only Employer B filed for H4 extension of Stay(I539) but not current employer A.


So can My wife stay based upon receipt of Employer B though I am currently not yet joined Employer B. OR do I need to file her H4 extn with current employer A also before her I94 expiry ?


Say If I join employer B on Apr 20th her stay between Apr 1st and Apr 20th considerred legal  ? Or worst case if I dont join Employer B is she Out of status from Apr 1st


please aadvise

Hi I am waiting for approval from Employer B  and then 2 weeks notice then join so it would be around Apr 3rd week by which my wifes I94 and H4 with current employer would have expired. Do you mean to say that if I dont join employer B also(worst case due to non compete or what ever) her H4 is valid and her stay is valid with Emp B H4 approval ?
