My wife is on H4 and had applied for H1b while she was in US. Due to family function we had to travel to India for 2 weeks. Her H1b got approved recently with consular processing. I am confused to decide between change of status and consular processing. My question are as follows:
Which option is better between COS(H4 to H1) and consular processing?
Is there more risk involved in consular processing?
Her experience is about 5 yrs from Tier 1 company but new employer is a small company. She was on LOA from last 1 year so she has her last payslip from december 2014. After that she has been staying in USA on H4. Will that be an issue during stamping if we decide to go for stamping.
If employer agrees for COS then will that have any risk. We are planning to file that in premium. What are the chances of it not getting approved.
Can we look for some other employer as well for COS if her current employer doesn’t agree?
Thanks in advance for all your help.
