Hi , My wife is currently on H1 Status and currently residing in USA and she wants to convert to H4 visa . I would like to know If she directly goes to India and get her H4 Stamping over there in order to convert to H4 status . Is there any risk involved in going for direct H4 stamping. I have I-140 approved and would like to apply H4 EAD once she gets her H4 visa stamping and comes back to USA . I know we can apply I 539 in order to change her status from H1 to H4 within USA , but its a lengthy process and may take 3 to 8 months. Please let us know is it the right way to convert to change her status directly going for H4 visa stamping.
