Currently I am on H1b status. My employeer gave me the original I94 that came with the I797A form however they kept the original I797A form and gave me a scan copy of it. I have recently decided to do H4 change of status. I asked my employer for original I797A and they came back to me saying that its misplaced. Application for change of status doesnt require original I797A however since it is lost do I have to inform USCIS and ask for a duplicate one or the copy will suffice? It take around 3-6 month to get the original copy. Will I need this original I797A after my H4 is approved? Will I need it to apply for greencard application which i will be applying through my spouse in future?
