I am in the same boat. I travelled to US with H4 in July 2014 and applied for change of status in last year i.e 2015. I got my H1 effective from nov 2015.I am not in project and am not in payroll yet i.e(since 10 months). My questions are as follows:
1)Am I out-of-status now?
2)Can I file for COS from H1 to H4 without paystubs?
3)Will there be any problem in processing of H4 ,if I am in out of status?
4)Will I face any problems while processing my husband's green card in future ?
Please reply to me as soon as possible. Or send me a email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
