Clarification Regarding my H1Extension


Im in US.My H1 got expired on July 31 2012.My employer applied for extension.

USCIS got my extension docs on June 14.The status is showing as initial review.

1)How long it will take to get final decision status on my H1Extension?

2)My wife is in india.she wants to come to USA.Is it possible for me to bring my wife using Tourist Visa?


You are eligible to stay in US only during your extention process. Once your extension is approved you can bring your wife thru H4 visa. Bring thru tourist visa is not permenent and advisable solution if she is going to stay with you for your entire H1 period.

This is not a legal advice. This is my opinion.
