If you’re currently working in the US on H1B visa and apply for change of status(COS) to H4 visa. Can you continue to work on your current H1B for the same employer while COS is pending? (Contd.)

It currently is taking 12-14 months for COS to be completed. So was thinking if I can continue to work on H1 till COS gets approved.

Is your h1b valid for the 12-14 month duration??

No. Valid for a little less than a 10 months.

I think you may have to wait until u get the approval on h4. But attorneys might be your best best to confirm this..
