  • H4 after H1B approval

    Hello All,

    Need guidance. My employer filed a H1B cap exempt petition ( based on my i140 approval) last year and it got approved on Feb 26th 2021. I am currently in India and waiting for the hard copy to get visa stamped. visa expired Sep 2019. It's been 6 weeks since approval but as per employer/attorney they have still not received petition hard copy. I am worried that it may have been lost in which case I believe attorneys will have to file I824 which will again take upto 6 months. Due to family circumstances I need to travel at the earliest as my spouse is working in US with his own H1B. My query is, while I have this approved petition can I get a h4 visa based on my husbands H1B and travel. What happens to this approved H1B petition? How should I resume working once the petition hard copy is received? Thanks in advance!
