  • H4 --> H1 : Need urgent help

    Hi ALL,

    Im in a situation and would need answers to my queries on an urgent basis.

    Im currently in US on H4 visa.My spouse's H1 is expiring on september 30th 2012.His H1 extension has been filed with uscis along with my H4 extension.
    My company in India has already filed my H1 for this 2012 cap and is currently in the initial review stage. (not yet approved)

    My queries :
    1) Will my case be a COS from H4 to H1 or will it be a fresh H1 ?
    2) OR Will i be able to apply for COS from H4 to H1 once my H1 is approved?
    3) Will i be able to work in US after October 1st, once my H1/COS is approved, even without the H1 stamp on my passport?
    4) Will my H4 extension affect my H1 approval process?
    3) Since i have also filed for H4 extension, will my H1 get invalidated, as H1 will be approved first in a month or so and H4 will be approved in another 2 to 3 months. ANd in that case my latest petition would be H4 ?

    Would appreciate your valuable comments.

    Thanks in advance
