My H1B expires April 30th, 2016 and I just submitted material for changing status to H4. I just found that I forgot to include in the package the explanation why I need a change of status. I am very much concerned whether I might get a denial because of this. If this happens it would be a nightmare as my wife is now pregnant I have to be with her and cannot go back to my country to get a visa stamp.
No "explanatory letter" necessary. The documentary evidence proving eligibility for the COS to H-4 with the I-539 application should pretty much speak for itself.
