Here. I was on H1B and was off by my company. My last day

Customer Question

Hi This is Rehana here. I was on H1B and was laid off by my company. My last day with my company was May 31st. I am looking for next job as well. Meanwhile I know my next employer should initiate my H1B transfer by Jul 29th. That being said, I can get my status change to H4 as husband H1B. What is the lead time time (what is the latest), we would need to file this change of status , so that I don't go out of status.

The regulations are to allow you to file for a change of employment when you are terminated from a job. The regulations do not include giving a grace period to file a change of status.

You can only have a new H1B change of employment petition filed. You cannot use the grace period to change to H4.
