I am a little confused. Any help would be appreciated.
I am currently in India. I have an I-20 from a university. I am planning to go to US Consulate to get an F-1 stamped. Meanwhile, I might be getting married soon to an H-1B holder currently in US but not sure at this point of time.
My questions are.
1. If I get my F-1 stamp and then come to US, how difficult is it to change to H-4.
2. If I get my F-1 stamp but get married before even entering US, what is the procedure to go back to US Consulate and get H-4. Would it cause any negative impact on the H-4.
3. If my F-1 petition gets rejectd and after I get married when I attempt to get the H-4, would the F-1 rejection have a negative bearing on this.
4. Finally, a general F-1 question. What happens if you have your F-1 stamped (and prior to entering US) but plan to defer to the next semester, would the Immigration folks have an issue with it.
thanks a lot!
