Immigration Issues/l2 to h4 transfer

Question
hi

My husband got his H1 approval in mid march but his employer filed for my change of status from l2 to h4 in end of march (i.e. after 15 days). Now my question is what are the chances of getting my COS approved as it was filed after his petition approval.

Also how long does it takes the decision to come?

Thanks
Please advice...

Answer
Dear Charu,

I think you have a good chance of getting your change of status approved although it was filed after your husband's H1b petition was approved.  It should've been filed together with your husband's H1b petition, but I guess it did not make it on time.

The decision will take about 3 months. (90 days)
