  • H1B to B1/B2


    My wife she just got terminated while she is on H1B visa and I am considering to apply for B1/B2 visa till she gets another project. I am holding Green card and we applied I-130 and it could take up to 3/4 months to apply I-1485 for her. So he needs to be on status till then.

    So the questions are:
    1) How safe it's to transfer to B1/B2 from H1B?
    2) How long its take meaning if I send it today, when the new status would be taken in effect?
    3) Does she need to leave the country to get the visa?
    4) If her B1/B2 visa get approve does it overwrite her H1B, meaning does she needs to apply for a new H1B?
    5) Is it true that company can not terminate any H1B before the last pay check issued to her and they need to reimburse the return expenses?

    Any valuable suggestion would be highly appreciate as I am running out of time and company has given her 2 weeks to find another company/job.
