Change of status from H1B to B2 with approved I-140

Hello,

Due to family reasons I may have to return to India, after leaving my H1B job. My I-140 was approved in 2019, my son is a US GC holder & should be able to apply for citizenship in ~2 years.

A few questions:
Can I change my status from H1B to B2 before I leave the US?
At what point does one give up H1B?
How much time does it take?

Thanks.

You dont need to change status. The I-94 status will expire once you resign from your job and leave within 60 days or asap from the last day at the job.
