I applied for an H1 transfer from Company A to company B. I worked for company A for 6 years. Filed for trnsffer to company B in august 2017, I received an RFE in October 2017 and it was denied in feb 2018.
I am planning on converting to h4. My husband is also on h1b. The attorney says I cant apply for change of status in US. I have to leave the country. Should My husband's employer apply for h4 visa and I receive the h4 copy before I can go for stamping? what is the process to apply for an h4 visa fr an h1 visa? How long is the uscis processing time
The applicant, not an employer, files an application to change status to H4. However, change of status to H4 is not possible if your I-94 has already expired. Consult with an experienced immigration lawyer for options.
