I was recently laid off by my ex employer in a full time job, i had an H1-B approval until Sep’2021.
I am currently working with a new employer to secure an offer to transfer my h1-b, however due to some delays (background check and drug test delays) they haven’t started my transfer yet.
I have my h1-b 2- month grace period ending in 3 weeks, should i start an h-4 application to tag onto my spouse h1-b or should i wait until my new employer to start the h1-b transfer?
Please advise, i am worried if my new employer causes further delays i might potentially go out of status.
Is it safe to have my h-4 application in pending status and my new employer file for an h1-b transfer? Appreciate any responses
