I'm currently in US on H4 which is expiring on 30th July and an extension for the same was applied on 8th July.
Meanwhile my H1 COS was approved on 18th July.
I planned to withdraw my H4 if I don't get approval on or before 30th Sep. But my employer says that withdrawing will make my stay ill-legal between 30th July and 30th September (H1 kicks off on 1st October). Is it true.
True -- keep the COS to H-4 pending.
