1. My company has accepted to file my H1 in this April in premium processing so I am expecting to get approval by May/June. I have valid OPT till July, 2014(STEM Extension). So can I go to India in July and come back in the same month of July? Will I be on OPT only in July or on H1 after getting H1 approval. Do I need to get H1 stamped for reentry in USA.? Will I have any issues at the port of entry .
2. I want to get my wife on H4, I am aware that she cannot come before October, but can't she apply in July/August? The attorney in India has suggested my fiancee to apply after October with atleast one H1 pay stub of mine and he added that she cannot apply before oct as just the approval is not enough, my status should also change from F1 to H1.
Please guide me on this
