Thanks for your advice, I came to know that H1 COS approvals taking more time in some cases. What if it takes till Oct to get COS approval? I'm little bit worried that H4 precedes H1 status in that case.

You can file h4 cos asap. If the h4 cos is not approved by August. You can file a premium process request.

Can we apply H4 COS (I-539) in premium processing? I came to know that there is no premium processing for I-539 form.

That's problematic. She becomes H-1, and then become H-4. If this happen, her H-1 becomes invalid. You can file H-4 and withdraw before 10/1/2012. In this case, she has to do a consular process.
