Question: I joined an employer in Jan-2016. My H1B and dependents H4 extension petition is approved till Dec-2018. On Sept-2016 I joined another employer and only my H1B was transferred and approved. H4 extension was not filled. 1. What will happen to my dependents status when my older employer revokes my H1B and dependent H4 petition. The Visa on passport already expired last year as it was from my previous to previous employer.
2. My current employer immigration team is saying that H4 petition can’t be revoked.
Do I need to file H4 extension for dependents with new employer..?
Answer: There is no need to file an extension for dependents as long as they have a validity to stay on H-1B. An employer’s withdrawal has no impact on the H-4 dependents.
