HI. My fiance’s h1 is due to expire in May 2016. His employers are going to file his extention at the end of february. Our wedding date is set for March 25. He will be flying to India between 18-30 March.
We have many questions. And thanks in advance to anyone who can answer any of these questions -
If his approval comes to his workplace in his absence (when he is in india for the wedding) then will he be stuck here, since he needs the approval paperwork in hand to apply for visa hearing in India ?
If I apply for H4 visa asap after our wedding, the visa IF approved will be until his h1 expiry date of may 1st. So first of all, if the expiry is within a month of me applying, will they even grant me an h4? And if i am granted an h4 that expires on 1st may, can i go to the US before expiry date and stay there, and apply for extention from within the us?
If i wait for him to get the approval on his h1b extention, and then apply in india for h4, does his newly extended h1 need a stamping for me get an h4?
I’m sorry if i haven’t been able to clearly communicate our predicament. I will be happy to explain in better details to anyone who feels like they could help. Thanks.
