HI, I switched employer and a new H1B was filed. At that time, my wife was in India, so we did not file H4. Her visa and I-94 is valid only until Nov 1st 2019(from previous H1B). I forgot about it and didn't extend her visa. My Attorney is starting the filing process today. My Question: Is there any grace period or Is she already in out of status? if in out of status, does getting a H4 receipt bring back her to in-status? H4 process takes 3 to 4 months, can she stay with H4 receipt? If denied in any circumstances, she can go to india and get stamped to get back? Is it advisable to go to India now itself?
