View Full Version : H4 to F1 COS pending and H4 expiring on Sep 30 2011

My wife has applied for a Change of status from H4 to F1 in May 2011 at vermont service center. Till date she didnt receive the F1 approval or rejection notice. And her H4 visa expires on Sep 30 2011.
We would like to know if we can wait until we hear the F1 COS decision by USCIS even if its past Sep 30 2011? Or we should file for H4 extension anytime before Sep 30 to retain the lawful status in this country.
Any inputs will be highly appreciated.
