Apply change of status from H4 to F1 for OPT

Hi @Anil_Gupta,

I am about to file I-539 COS form for H4 to F1. I have got my e-copy of I-20 from University. My questions are:

  1. In I-539 COS form, it is required to show financial certificate. My husband has the required amount, but it is invested in stocks, can we show our stock statement along with bank statement?
  2. What is the acceptance rate of H4 to F1 conversion through I-539 filing?
  3. The reason to COS is that I need to apply for practical training that University offers to F1 and not to H4. Is there any better answer/reason to explain in the letter sent with the form?
  4. Is there any other factors you might know when COS is denied and i should avoid doing that?

Appreciate your endless help.

You can show stock statements along with bank statements.

Approval rate is good for H4 to F1 change of status.

It is better to write the truthful reason in the letter than spoofing things up.
