Thread: F1(OPT) to H4

    Question F1(OPT) to H4

    Hello I am posting this on behalf of my wife.

    We got married this year and we are both on OPT now. I got H1B sponsorship from my company but she did not that my company filed h4 petition for her.

    We got a notice from USCIS saying that my H1B/her H4 were successfully filed and are being processed now. My OPT was automatically extended from 6/30/18 to 9/30/18. However, her OPT will comes to an end on 6/30/18 and she is non-STEM major that we were not able to extend her OPT if I understand it correctly.

    My questions here is since her H4 is being processed, is it ok for her to stay with me here in the states after 6/30 till her H4 being approved?

    We already asked our DSO and she doesn't seem to know the answer to my question.

    Any of your words would be truly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.
