I had applied for my H4 and H4EAD extension along with my spouse H1B in April 2020.
My spouse H1B was approved in June 2020 and I was awaiting biometric appointment as my H4 status was up-to August 31st.
Meanwhile my new H1b was approved with the change of status effective Oct 1st 2020. But now I have received notice to attend the H4 biometrics appointment scheduled in the coming week.
I am confused why I got this appointment even though my status has changed from H4 to H1. Question I have is what should be my further action:
Do I need to attend this biometric appointment?. But I would like to retain my H1b status
I talked to USCIS customer care, they said when you have approved H1b, you need to cancel your H4 extension application. My spouse contacted his attorney office, Since i had my H4 approved till Aug 2020 and my H1b was approved from Oct 2020. withdrawing my H4 petition may put me in out of status for Sep 2020
Can you please let me know what I should do in this scenario to retain my H1b and also not fall in trouble due to out of status. Technically my H4 was in process in September and I am in status, but if I withdraw H4 application now, does it really make me to fall in out of status for Sep 2020?
