My H1b will max out in March 2022, considering the current timeline my PERM should come by end of Dec 2022. As my wife is on an F1 visa I am planning to stay back on f2 COS which will help my spouse in studies and I can share the load of day-to-day chores and kids.
Q1. Considering the current timeline of f2 COS which is 18-20months I will be on f2 receipt. If I exit the country before approval in case of emergency abandoning the f2 COS will my stay will be counted as an overstay?
Q2. Once my Perm is approved my employer will file my I-140 in premium, Do I need to wait for I-140 approval to apply for an H1b extension?
Q3. And at what stage I can start working, is it when the H1b extension is filed, or do I need to wait for approval? Can we do an H1b extension in premium?
