  • H1B to H4

    Hello All

    I need some information regarding shifting from H-1B to H4. I have a valid H-1B Visa till 2021 (First 3 years). I'm working in Texas and my husband is in Wisconsin. I'm not able to find a job in Wisconsin area or Illinois area as I need a H-1B transfer. So I'm planning to shift to H4 for some time and in the mean time my husband's employer will start filing for I-140.
    1. How long will it take for H4 processing?
    2. Should I keep working until H4 gets approved?
    3. Because I used only 1 year of my H-1B out of 6 year term. Will my H-1B get expired?
    4. If I want to work in the future, do I need to wait until I get H4-EAD or will I be able to use my unused H-1B?
    5. If in future, some employer sponsors me H-1B will it still have to go through lottery?

    Please provide your valuable suggestions.
    Thanks in advance.

    4.You can use your H1
    5. Will be cap exempt provided you haven't used up your full quota of 6 yrs. on H1B.
