I am currently in the US on F-2 Visa. My husband is currently on his STEM OPT. I have a query regarding my current visa status. I have an I-20 from University of Notre Dame for Fall 2020 and have filed COS from F2 to F1. (Receipt date: 05/20/2020) My husband’s H1B has been approved and will start from October 1st. I haven’t filed for COS to H4 as my COS to F1 is already in process. The University allows F2 status holders to atudy part time.
- So, considering my current situation, can I start studying part-time on F2?
- Will I be out of status from October 1st? or can I stay and study part time as I had filed my COS early? Does this come under authorized period of stay?
- Do I also need to file COS to H4? Can two COS applications run parallely?
Your reply will be highly appreciated.
