GETTING DIVORCES AND HAVE AN H4, WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS ?

         Question:

I am on H4 status, my visa will expire in August of 2022, if I get divorce from my spouse who is on H-1B status, what are my chances to convert my visa, she wants to fight in our divorce its not gonna be mutual understanding divorce, if for example it will take 3 years to get my divorce, till that time I will be legal in this country.
Answer: 

Your legal stay will end when your status ends in 2022 if you aren’t divorced by then. No courts take 3 years. And if the divorce happens before your I 94 end date, you will require another status for yourself. Please try the H-1B lottery if you qualify or trying moving to being a student. Thanks
