Thank you for your patience. Your answer is below. When you get your answers, you will be asked to give a rating - 4 or 5 stars are appreciated. This is important because this is how I credit for doing my job. Don't worry, you can still ask related follow-up questions even after you've given a rating. Thank you!

ANSWER: Technically, you do not "revoke" his H4, the USCIS does that. And technically, the minute the divorce is finalized, his H4 status is terminated by law, since the H4 requires him to be married to an H1B visa holder.

So once you have the divorce decree, you need to write a letter to the USCIS office address listed on your I-797 approval notice. In that letter, inform the USCIS that your divorce is finalized and provide them with a copy of the divorce decree, a copy of your spouse's I-797 approval notice for the H4, if you have it, and a copy of your I-797 approval notice. This way they match the records to make the termination of his status official on the record.

I also would call the USCIS directly and inform the representative of the same.

I hope that answers your questions. Please remember to give me credit for doing my job by clicking on 4 or 5 stars at the top of your screen.

A BONUS is also appreciated if you feel I've earned one today. And remember, you can still ask follow-up questions if you need to.

If you want to talk on the phone, I am available to do that for an additional fee.

And if you have new questions in the future, you should write FOR JAMES in the question. That way, I become your personal Professional.

Thank you!

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.
