I’m on H1B visa, getting exhausted 6 years (including recapture time out of the country) on 31st December 2019.
My employer has filed my GC, Perm approval expected next week and then I’m planning to file I-140 in premium (expecting I-140 approval in the last week of October)
Also would like to mention that I have a medical condition and would not able to travel out of the country at least for 6 months. And my spouse is holding H1B visa(already I-140 approved).
Please guide me for the following questions-
What happens if my employer is unable to file my H1B extension before 31st December 2019. Would I lose my chance of getting 7th-year H1B extension forever?
If I file H1B to H4 change of status, what are the current processing timelines? What the chances of getting H4 approved before 31st December 2019, so that I save myself from exhausting H1B?
