Hello,

I am on H1B and my wife is on H4 visa. Now she plans to do her M.S. with funding from a professor. For that she must tranfer to F1 visa from H4. I have a few questions:
1. How long does it take for change of visa from H4 to F1?
2. If my wife goes on F1 and say, after a year my employer files my green card, will it be a problem for my wife since she will be on F1 visa?

Thanks in advance.
