Hi Ron, I have my I-140 approved with h1b visa stamped till next year June 2017. I have been out of USA and has not been working for more than an year due to medical reasons. Now I want to convert from h1 to h4 visa on spouse visa and later convert to h1 again in the near future. 1) is it possible to convert from h1 to h4 while I'm out of USA and without payslips? 2) if I apply from h4 to h1 with the I-140 approval later, will I be subject to cap exemption?
