Hello friend. My name is XXXXX XXXXX welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: (1) this is general information only, not legal advice, and, (2) there may be a slight
delay between your follow ups and my replies.
On this website, I do not always get to give good news,and I am afraid that this is one of these times. This plan may not be as practical as one wants it to be. Allow me to explain:
1) Your wife's F2 visa is dependent on your F1 visa continuing to be valid. This means that if you drop your F1 for a B2 visa (and you cannot have both at the same time), your wife's F2 visa will also be dropped automatically.
2) Receiving a B2 visa takes 1-3 months depending on the consulate
. So you may have to wait all this time to get the B2 visa.
3) Switching between F1 to B2 and back to F1 is not recommended. USCIS keeps a record and at some point, the US Consulate/USCIS is simply going to deny you another visa. Also, there is no guarantee that you will receive another F1 visa if you drop your current program (which looks detrimental to your record).
4) Having said that, it is best to continue on with one's F1 visa if possible. An authorized travel abroad period, in which you stay in contact with school, is the most common vacation period. You may also request a leave of absence for the honey moon, but this has to be worked out with your school's international student office and be reflected in your I-20 (they can help with this).
I am sorry. Please note: I aim to give you genuine
information and not necessarily to tell you only what you wish to hear. Please, rate me on the quality of my information and do not punish me for my honesty. I understand that hearing things less than optimal is not easy, and I empathize.
