I am on F2 visa which is valid till Oct19. My husband H1B started from 15 January 2019. We have applied for my COS F2 to H4 yesterday that is 27th January 2019 . Would it be considered? or Is it too late?
It is late. It may be better to try consular processing, as a change of status could get denied.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
The very second he is on H1B you can file for change of status to H4.
My answer to your question is intended only as an offer of general legal information and does not create an attorney/client relationship. This answer is no substitute for a consultation with an competent attorney concerning the precise facts of your case as they might be. In fact, you are strongly encouraged to have a personalized consultation with an attorney competent in the area of inquiry to review all the facts in your case and obtain legal advice tailored to your specific situation. Please understand that my answer does not create any specific attorney client relationship which relationship can only be created by formally retaining this firm to represent you in a specific matter. If you found my answer to be “Helpful” or to be the “Best Answer,” among those presented to this specific inquiry, kindly mark it as such.
At the time that your spouse changed status to the H-1B from the F-1, your F-2 status ended. The FORM I-539 must be approved on a nunc pro tunc in order for you to remain in the U.S. You should discuss your case with an experienced and qualified attorney.
