I got married in Jan 2013 this year. My husband is in US from the same company/account. The location is also the same for us. We work for the same company in India.
This body shop for which we both work, had promised to file my visa in April. Now due to some internal bull shit politics, my visa is not getting filed within first week of April. I am trying to really push hard but its all on luck now.
In worst case, if I miss the cap totally, I want to be prepared. So our plan is -
I will apply for H4 and join my husband. Post that I will start applying for jobs once I am there. I have a work exp of 4 years. Once I find a job, I will enroll into a nearby college and convert to F1. Once I have my F1, I think I can work. I have the following questions:-
While I apply for COS I think it takes 3-4 months to get an F1. Can I work in these 3-4 months when I have applied for COS?
Can a company from US apply an H1-B for me in the 65,000 cap general quota (not the MS one)? This is about April 2014. The course that I will enroll is a 2 yr MBA graduate course.
Please let me know the flaws in this plan. I want to know if there is some way I can make it there and stay with my husband. Also at the same time I dont want to bring a gap in my own career.
Please guide me through this.
Appreciate all the efforts that you put in to reply the queries on this blog. Thanks a lot!!
