Hi On august 5th I filed for H4 and H4 EAD concurrently which was denied . Denial notice says that I did not maintain valid F1 non immigrant status because I transferred to another university from university in Jan 2013. I was given f1 visa on Kent state where I never registered as I had better options from another university I had to transfer .Kent state did not object the transfer and sevis was transferred to another university .I finished my course at other university and was awarded a master degree . An opt and Opt extension was approved by USCIS upon finishing my masters . I travelled to India while I was pursuing masters in stratford and was not questioned of it maintaining the status by DHS. Upon completing opt period I enrolled in another masters degree in va university and USCIS has approved Cpt program with the degree . Sevis is still active I got my license extended (which happens only when you are in status ) Social security was issued in 2014 and I did not face any issue there . Today USCIS has denied change of status to H4 and claim I was not maintaining my F1 non immigrant status . I could like to know my options Whether to file motion to reopen or Go to India get H4 stamped ?. If I file a motion and if that is refused , what kind of consequences I'm going to face and how will it impact my H4 stamping in India then? .Current status : F1 on CPT If I file a motion to re consider which will take 30- 60 days ,am I allowed to work in the period ? What are the chances of wining this case ?
