I was recently laid off and my employment ends by the end of this week. I would greatly appreciate your opinion on my options listed below! 1. Bridge petition - I understand that if I file for a bridge petition before the end of the week, I can continue my status, but that my bridge petition has to be approved. Can I cancel it once I file for visa from employer #3? 2. Filing for F2 Change of status - My wife is on F1 but on enquiring about COS to F2, her student advisor mentioned it is not an option as it should have been filed 3-6 mo back as that is how long it takes to process and that I have to visit her university in person to get the dependent I 20. Are these assumptions true? 3. Filing for B2 Tourist visa COS - If this is the best option, should I file for B2 Change of Status BEFORE my employment ends? 4. Do nothing - As there is no specific guidline from USCIS, is the grace period between end of employment and filing of new H1B petition 10 days? Which among the above is my best option? Greatly appreciate your help Ron and team!!
