    Hi All,

    My wife is in F1 status now. She changed from H4 to F1 last year. She entered USA in h4 status then later converted to F1. She want to change her status back to H4 now from f1. She is still studying but wants to change her status to H4. what are the options we have now. Can she go out of country and come back on H4 status if so how can we do that or do we need to apply for COS from here ??


    Please suggest

    She can apply for a COS. However, that does take a few months to get approved. If there is a hurry, the fastest way is to go out of the country and come back on a H4 visa.
