Can I apply for a H4 Status while am on H1-B in US ?


I have a Valid H1-B and am currently working. However since me and my husband are at different locations and my parents are getting back to India, am planning to move with my husband on H4.


However both of us work for same employer. So not sure if there will be any issues in changing my status to H4 ?




Kindly suggest options or ways to move on H4, so that I can stay with my husband and son.

God only knows why you would want to go through the hassle of changing H1 to H4 when you can remain in H1B and look for a job in your husband’s location. There are so many spouses on H4 who are desperately waiting for a chance to work and you have that chance and you want to throw it away?
