Hi,

 

My wife's H4 visa is expiring on September 22nd, 2016 (I-94 date). Her employer has also applied for H1B and we are not aware of her status yet after lottery.

 

I have following questions:

 

1. Is H4 extension required if her H1B get selected in lottery? Can she stay in the USA after H4 expiry date till her H1B is approved?

 

2. If H4 extension is required, should we go for premium processing of H4 extension so that it should be approved before H1B get approved.

 

Thanks,

Aravind
