  • Documents required for Change of Visa status from H4 to F1


    I am planning to change my status from H4 to F1.
    I already went through the forums and got a random list.
    Do anyone let me know the exact list of all documents required for change of status from H4 to F1.
    And also let me what is approx. time frame taking for status change..

    Do we need to consult an attorney or can we do it ourself.
