Convert H4 EAD to H1B start date


(Anonymous) #1

Hi Anil -
I have a question on reinitiating H1B. My wife for h1b in Nov 2014 and used it for 11 months (till Oct 2015).

After that she got H4 EAD and working on it.

She wants to continue in her H4 EAD unless if there are any issues as it would be easy.

In case we need to reactivate old H1B before what date could we do it.Can we reactivate the old H1B anytime or is there a limitation on this

Your wife can change her status to H1B but can’t start working on H1B until it is approved.

Till the time H1B is not approved, she can keep working using H4 EAD though. I have covered this scenario in detail here:
