I have a timing problem and need some clarity.
I came here on H4 which is valid till 9/24/2015.
My spouse has a H1 valid till 9/30/2015. He is about to file his H1B extension by end of this week.
I have applied for H1 (COS) in Apr 2015, got an RFE, later it was approved on Aug 6 2015. My H1 (COS) status starts from 10/01/2015.
- How do I manage my status for the 6 days between 9/24/2015 to 9/30/2015?
- Can I go to CBP and get it corrected by providing all the relavant documents (Old H4 stamping and New H1 I797)?
- Is there no way to cover this six days on H4 status?
- When I checked with CBP over phone, the officer confirmed that I had to leave and re-enter the country without looking at the documents. Is this the only option?
An immediate response would be highly appreciated.
