Question My wife is currently working in USA on H1B. I am also in US on my H1B. As she is not keeping well, I want to file H4 for her based on my H1B. Can she quit her job and stay in US pending COS approval for H4 ?
Answer Dear Anil:
Sorry to hear about your wife's health - I wish her all the very best and a speedy recovery; anyways, regarding COS, yes, she may stay in the U.S pending COS provided the COS is filed within the status period.
