WILL WIFE’S H4 BE IMPACTED WITH GOING TO COMPANY B?

         Question:

Hi Mam,

I applied for my wife’s H4 extension on 5/5/20 while I was on approved H1B with employer A.  Before receiving H4 approval, I got hired by B company and H1B transfer got approved. Now my wife’s new H4 is still in progress. Could you please confirm that my wife’s H4 extension will not have any impact due to my H1B transfer. And my wife will never be OUT of STATUS and previous H4 extension (status as IN PROGRESS) when approved will automatically map to the new H1B transfer approval dates.

Thanks,

Answer: 

It all depends on whether she still has a valid I 94 and if your first employer has withdrawn the H1B or not. The best way for her to get this case approved is to stamp her H4 on her passport and re-enter if she doesn’t have a valid I 94 at this time.
