I applied for h1b through an consultancy in April 2008 and got approved and was officially on it from OCT 2008. I didn't get my stamping done as I haven't been out of country. I worked from DEC till JAN 2009 and now i don't have any project on hand. i worked while in OPT during 2007-2008. So now Iam thinking to change my status to F2 as my husband was on F1 (PhD w/ funding ) .
Can you please let me know whats the process for changing from h1 to f2 and what are the very important steps for me take immediately so that i dont fall out of status.
Will there be any problems as iam kind of out of status now. ( coz i don't have any pay stubs for the last6months !)
Can this change of status work for me by staying within the US.
Is there anything that can make my employer(consultany) to create problems.
How long it takes for COS and mean while what will be my status ?
Do I need to go back to my home country,India to get F2 visa stamping done ?
Iam sorry to bug you w/ lot of questions .. but can't help it .. i desperately need help .. hope you can understand .
Thanks in advance
