My H1-B visa is expiring in Apr 2013 and my spouse is also on H1-B till Jun 2014. My company will be filing my PERM in May 2013. I am planning to stick around in US on dependent VISA H4 as my employer is providing the option of a break.(employed on no salary…I will not be working since on H4)
And my employer will convert from h4 to h1 as soon as my I-140 gets approved. If my previous employer does the conversion, do I have to leave US or can i get the 3 year extension on my existing H1 in US itself? And normally how long does the coversion take?
Is there anything from legal perspective which I should be bothered about or is this sounds like a good plan. Let me know if you observe any loop hole.
