Status of H-4 Dependents When H-1B is Denied

If my H-1B petition is denied by USCIS, or withdrawn by my employer, what happens to my H-4 dependents?

If you are no longer in valid H-1B status, your dependents’ H-4 petitions will no longer be valid either.

H-1B Filed Under the Quota for the Year 2014

My H-1B was filed under the quota for the year 2014 and recently approved. Am I now in H-1B status?

A petition filed under the 2014 quota cannot have an effective date before October 1, 2013.  You cannot be in H-1B status prior to that date.

Applying for H-1B Renewal

I am applying for an H-1B renewal. Do I really need to submit all of the same documents, diplomas, client letters, and so on, again?

USCIS treats each petition as a new case and requires a complete set of documents, as if it is the first time you petitioned.

Moving Outside USA For A Year While H-1B Has Not Expired

I have a valid H-1B until April 2014. I left my employment with my company March 2013 and we were in the process of applying for the GC. I did not have time to find another employer and file a GC application before entering my final year. Therefore even if I transferred my H-1B I still would have had to leave in 2014. Therefore I have decided to come back to England for a year and reapply when I have completed 365 days out. I have 2 questions: 1) Does my time start from when I left the US or do I have to cancel my H-1B? 2) If I go back to visit, I assume I just visit under the visa waiver?

1. The one year out starts when you leave USA.

2. It may be best not to visit during that year.
