    Hello,

    I have pending I-485(I-140 approved) since 2012 and currently on H1-B about to expire in april 2017. Back in 2012 I was not married so I could not file I-485 for my spouse. She is currently on her own h1-b. I am planning to move to 485-ead from my h1-b. Just wanted to check in future for any reason if my spouse needs a H4 can I again covert back to h1-b from I-485 ead? If yes will that be a h1b extension based on my approved I-140 or will that be new h1b petition which comes under the cap?



    Thanks a lot for replying to my question

    A new H1B petition will not fall under the cap.
