My wife entered the US on H4 on Jun-2020 and H4 visa/I-94 was valid until Sep-2020. My current employer filed an H1B/H4 extension in time for us in Jul 2020 and my H1B approval came through for 3 years but H4 extension for wife is still pending. Now I am switching employers. New employer will take care of H1B transfer only in premium & not H4. Once I join the new employer, my old employer will withdraw/revoke the H1b and so the previous H4 extension would probably be denied at some point and note that I-94 has expired for my wife.
Having said above for my wife, with
H4 extension from previous employer still pending
and with only H1B transfer in premium with new employer,
Can I file h4 extension via my own attorney for my wife separately after I get the receipt# of H1b transfer from my new employer OR you think it’s NOT possible because H1B transfer & h4 extension must be filed by the new employer concurrently. OR it’s better to join only after H4 approval comes through. I have already read on your forum that H4 is independent of H1B transfer which is ok but want to know the safest steps as current H4 extension is still in progress. Thanks for the help.
