  • L1 to H1 and F1 to H4

    I am Currently Working with company XYZ since 5 1/2 years.
    I came here 2 1/2 yrs ago on Blanket L1 and the same company filed my H1 an year ago.
    I am going to india this october 0f 2010 and will need to go for H1 Stamping.
    I was handed over the documents by the company law firm who deals with the visa processing.

    1)Is there anything i need to worry about my stamping?

    2)My Fiance is currently on F1 and is it a good idea if she converts to H4 at the same time when i go for stamping after our marriage?

    please advice

      what if my wife travels here(US) on F1 and apply for status change to H4 from here(US). She has her F1 valid until mid of January 2011.

        It really depends on what your choice is. If she wants to return on F1 after the wedding and use the OPT, she can. If she returns on H4, F1 will get cancelled and she may not be able to work on-campus or use OPT.

        I am not a lawyer and you need to consult with one to validate any info posted on the forum and discuss your case specifics. H1b Question? Read the FAQ first.

            Processing time may vary from one processing center to another. Normal processing time is anywhere between 1 - 3 months.
