I am currently in H4 Visa. One Employer filed Change of Status(H4 to H1) which has got approved from 1-oct-2013. Now because of some concern I will not be able to start working from 1-Oct-2013. So I would like to extend my current H4 Visa status and possibly in future I will try to go back to H1 status. My question is -
1. what is typical attorney fee for filing Extend of H4 status in case I do it myself(I saw somewhere the filing fee is $290)?
2. Considering 1-Oct-2013 is the date when my status getting changed to H4 to H1, what is the latest date to file my H4 status extension? If I file by 15-Oct-2013, will that be Ok?
3. What is the cost of changing my status from H4 to H1 back again?
