I applied for H1 transfer in Sep 2001 and got it approved in Oct 2001. My attorney never advised me to file for a H4 transfer for my wife. She entered US through H4 visa obtained in a US consulate abroad, which is based on my approved I797 from my previous employer. Her H4 visa is valid untill Aug 2003 and so is mine.
Is my wifes H4 status still valid or she is out-of-status?
Was it required to file for her H4 transfer, when I filed for my H1 transfer?
If she travels abroad, will she be allowed to re-enter the US with the old visa before Aug 2003?
Please post any experiences...
