Dear Admin & Saurabh
I always find your forum very useful.
First I would like to brief you about me. Currently I’m in USA on F1 (OPT Extension - End date XX-XX-2013) and my H1B (2013 Quota) got approved in May 2012 (with a activation date of October 1st 2012). I got my I-797.
My all queries are related to my spouse’s H4 visa.
Previously my spouse applied once for F2 visa (in Jan 2012) which got denied ( VO said that your husband can’t support you and you should apply again for H4 visa once your husband got H1b visa).
Q1: Is it possible for my spouse to apply for H4 visa from 1st July 2012 onwards (without my H1b Stamp and before activation date of my H1b [Oct-01-2012]) on behalf of my I-797 H1b approval?
Q2: I’m aware that she can travel to USA only after 21st September 2012 ( Please, correct me if I’m wrong)
Q3: Currently my employer is paying me less than what’s mentioned on LCA ( I’m on percentage bases in a EVC model) but he promised to raise my wages as soon as H1b period starts.
Will this be a problem during H4 visa interview when my spouse will show VO my paystuff [It’s 52-55K per annum] which is less than what mentioned on LCA. Consider that fact that my H1b is still not started…
Q4: Currently I’m working with Employer A and Client X. Once my spouse’s visa got approved and before her arrival to USA, if I changed my client X to Client Y (While working under same Employer A). Can she use same H4 visa to enter USA or she has to re-appear for H4 visa as I changed my Client to Y on a new project. In any case what other documents she need to carry with her while traveling to USA?
