In your case, you need to take an action to invalidate H-1 COS.As you have lost your job, it is better that you travel outside US and return on F-2 and then apply for F-2 COS. Later, any employer can file cap-exempt H-1 petition for you, if you obtain a new job.I hope this clarifies. Please don't forget to rate the question

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
