Hello, my name is ***** ***** I will be the immigration attorney helping you today.

What was the last day of working for your current employer? When did you submit the Change of status to H4?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I received my last paystub on Dec 11th and submitted H4 COS to USICS in last week of December
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Also I am not sure if Company A 140 is withdrawn but when i check USCIS online status it says still approved
Immigration Lawyer: Jen Marie, Esq., Immigration Attorney replied 2 years ago

Unfortunately you could no longer submit the change of status application once you were no longer working because once you stopped working you were no longer on valid H1B status. Your COS application will likely be denied if you cannot prove that you were working until you submitted the H4 COS application. If your H4 is denied, then your H1B COS would also likely be denied because you are currently not in a valid status. This does not mean that your H1B petition is denied, but you would have to depart the US for consular processing of the H1B and re-enter the US.

Good luck to you during this process and I hope this answer has helped you!
