Change of status - H4 to H1


Recommended Posts



a) My spouse's H4 to H1 Change of status is in RFE. Her current H4 is valid till 2018.

In case, if the COS gets rejected/denied, can my spouse continue to stay in H1 status since it is valid till 2018? [More info: Her H4 validity till 2018 is an extension while in US, and is not stamped in passport]


b) If the Change of status from H4 to H1 Change of status gets approved, is there a timeline on when she needs to start work? Due to personal issues, she might not able to start work for about a year, and can start after that. How does this work? If she starts work late, is there any  process to be followed?


Please help.
