I am an Indian citizen. My wife works in Massachusetts and I

Hi, my name is***** am an Indian citizen. My wife works in Massachusetts and I arrived in US on Aug 18, 2017 on B2 visitor visa (stay ending Aug, 2017). I am planning to find work opportunities in US, which needs me to secure H1B sponsorship, I am still searching for an employer. Also, I am planning to convert my status from B2 to H4 so that I would not have to leave US in Aug, 2017. I have two questions as follows.1. If I apply for status change from B2 to H4 this week, would it raise some unnecessary doubts / questions on my application since I have recently come to US on B2 and would straight-away apply for H4. Also, if I could find an employer then I would have to apply for H1B after a few weeks.2. How much time does it take for USCIS to approve the "change of status" applications for B2 to H4 conversion?3. In case I am able to file H1b Visa, Will I be able to apply for H4 while my H1 B is in process? I might need it to keep my status legal.JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?Customer: I am tourist visiting on B2 visaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
