Immigration Issues/H4 to F1

Question
Dear Sir

My husband's I140 has been approved but I have not been added as a dependent on that. I want to change my status from H4 to F1. Will that be possible with a status change in the country. If I leave the country will I face problems at the counsulate during stamping even if my name was not included in his I140

Would be grateful if u reply

Answer
Asha,
You should be able to change from H-4 to F-1 since you have not applied for any immigrant visa. For visa stamping purposes you would need to satisfy the consulate officer that you do not intend to immigrate.
