QUESTION: Dear Sir
I am changing my status from H-1 to F-1 and now I am joining Kaplan and that issue I-20 for 6 month and I heard that the change of status from H-1 to F-1 process will almost take 6-7 month so USCIS might reject coz the I-20 was issued only 6 month and they will reject coz the I-20 will be expired when the USCIS will come to the decision.
If the I-539 is pending while filing the I-129 you need to attach the receipt and make sure that the USCIS matches both the files while adjudicating your H-1B petition.
Also try to get a I-20 for one year program if available.

I did not understand what is I-129. I am just changing from H-1 to F-1 and the I-20 which kaplan will issue will be for 6 month so that will create a problem.
I am sorry for the confusion, it is taking more than 6 months and if your I-20 is not valid at that time, the USCIS will ask you to provide additional information. Also if your I-20 is expired by then you would any way need to leave the country.
