Received denial notice of I-539 (from F1 to H4). I was on opt which got expired on June 30 2012. On June 28 2012 I got the I-20 by transferring to school and currently going to school. My wife's H1B has a validity date of 10/01/2012. The USCIS give the following reason of denial.
Your non immigrant status expired on June 30, 2012 plus the 60 day grace period afforded to those in a F- 1 (student) status, your authorized stay ended on August 28 , 20l2. You are requesting to change your status to H-4 dependent of a H-1B non-immigrant worker. Your spouse's has validity dates of 10/01/2012 to 09/30/2015.
Change of status is denied because you have failed to maintain your non-immigrant status prior to the beginning validity date, l0/01/2012, of your spouse's H-1B non-immigrant status.
