Default H4 to H1 Transfer, H4 expired, Urgent!!!

Hi,

At present I am on H4 but my H4 expired in December2006. But I have I-94 valid till 2009. My husband also got extension till April2009. Now I want to apply for H1 in April2007. I want to know whether this will affect my H1 approval? Do I need to have stamped H4 which is valid till 2009 before filing fresh H1?
I need this as soon as possible.

Thank in advance.

Default Visa stamp not reqd

You do NOT need to have an H4 visa stamped for change of status to H1, as long as you have a valid I-94. Don't worry.

Looks like your Husband got H1-B extension till 2009; per my knowledge you should have file I-539 along with your husband to get your H4 approval till 2009, if you didn't do it then looks like you need to do right away..or consult your attorney ASAP, I-94 card is doesn't validate your H4 status...

I am NOT a Lawyer; you many consult lawyer...this type of mistake my friend's did in past...

Good Luck
