Current Visa status is OPT. My OPT expires in feb 2018. I am filing for H1B in April 2017. Me and my fiance are getting registered in March 2017. Does this impact my eligibilty to apply for H1b ?
If i don't get picked for H1B can I go back to F1 and persue higher education? Will it conflict with my change of status petition which has been filed after i got registered(married).
What things do i need to keep in mind to make sure I can stay in USA with my fiance in good legal status.
Marriage to a permanent resident will have no impact on your H1b. If you are in lawful, nonimmigrant status, you can remain an F1. Marriage will not prevent you from remaining an F1.
