H4 Travel and stamping while H1 Petition is pending


#1

Hi,
I am currently working on H4 EAD valid till April, 2021 along with I-94 and I-797 reflects the same date but H4 Visa is expired on august,2018.
My current employer filed my H1 petition with COS for the year 2019.

Due to personal emergency, i would like to visit india in first week of May, 2019 and coming back on last week of May,2019.

I am planning to go for H4 stamping (drop box option) when i am in india as my H4 Visa is expired.

Concerns/Questions.

  1. Will there be any problem for H4 Stamping, while my H1 Petition is pending ?

  2. Post H4 Stamping and re-entering the USA , can i continue work under H4 EAD till its validity irrespective of H1 petition status ?

  3. Is there any problem during CBP check for H4 entry, since my H1 Petition is pending ?

  4. Other than COS getting abandon and i need to go for Consular processing for H1 Stamping, do i need to worry on any other concerns ?
