    H4 and then H1

    I came to US in H4 visa but i had applied for H1 when i was in india which got approved (Nov 06).

    I went to SSN office with I797C requesting for SSN but i was denied with reason ni valid I94.

    Can i re-apply pls help me on this regard my employer says that he can not get placed with out an SSN.

    ---- You have entered US on H4 and thus your status is H4 and cannot be changed to H1. That is also the reason you were not given SSN. If you want H1 status you have to go out of the country, get H1 issued and enter US on H1 with a valid I-94, apply for SSN and then start getting paid

    ---- Speak to your employer and their attorney how best this can be done in a short period of time so that you start working and getting paid
