    that depends on the strength of your H1B

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Ideally contact your employer to help out with the process. If it is not covered, your wife will independently apply for H-4 at the Consulate. For documents, check out the Consulate's website. The visa is not "changed." She will be granted H-4 in addition to her B1/2 or they may cancel it. It is up to the Consulate's discretion. Yes, she can travel and re-enter on H-4.
