I am at company A. I am in H1b, my wife is in H4. Both of us are in the US. Both of H1b and H4 will expire in 07/2021.
Recently I accepted an offer from company B. The company B filed H1b for me and filed H4 extension for my spouse in 11/2018. The new H1b and H4 will be extended to 10/2021. The company B filed premium process for my H1b in 03/2019. I can expect the H1b and H4 in company B will be approved very soon. But I do not want to join company B now, and I will still work in company A for family reason.
My concerns are:
If my H1-b in company B and my spouse’s respective H4 extension are approved, I will still retain to work at company A. Based on my study, my status should be fine as I still have valid H1-b in company A. Meanwhile, company B will revoke my H1-b in future, though that does not affect my H1-b status in company A. What will happen to my spouse’s H4? Will she be out of status after the company B revoke the approved H1-b in future, because the H4 is bonded to the company B’s H1-b? Is there a way to keep her correct H4 status?
The problem I can see here is that the extended H4 filed by company B will have later expiration date (10/2021) than my H1-b expiration date(07/2021) in company A, that obviously does not consist. Will it cause problems in the future for my wife to extend her H4?
I super worry her H4 status. Can anyone provide any insights on that?
Thanks in advance.
