a) Used to be working on H-4 EAD earlier and it is valid till 2020 June.
b) My spouse recently changed his company & while doing H1-B transfer he applied for H-4 transfer as well as EAD renewal as well. Both H4 Transfer/Extension and H4-EAD Extension applications are in progress currently.
c) This year my employer also applied fresh H1 petition & its Approved last week. Based on the my status may now have been changed to H1 from H4.
Due to personal/location constraints i would like to change back to H4 and H4 EAD and i have these following questions.
what should be done to change my status back to H-4. Since H4 Transfer extension is already in progress via my spouse transfer, Can that be used to convert back to H4 from current H1 status by USCIS (or) fresh H-4 COS need to applied ?
In case if i have to apply for H4 COS and get it approved , for H4 EAD related - Do i need to apply for H4 EAD again or if any of the below two options works for me ?
Using the existing H-4 EAD which is valid till June 2020 ? (or)
Using the approval of H4 EAD extension applied via my spouse H1 transfer
In future , if h4 ead is terminated , can i file Out of Cap/Cap Exempt H1 (or) Do i need to have h1 stamped atleast once , to be eligible for Cap Exempt H1 ?
I only understand that Out of Cap/Cap exempt H1 can be applied for underused H1 duration of 6 yrs and away from country. Can we file being in the country as well with existing different status ?
