H-4 Approval for Family of H-1B Visa Holder

H-4 Approval for Spouse of H-1B Visa Holder

Our employment-based immigration law firm recently obtained an H-4 extension of status approval. U.S. immigration laws allow the spouse and child of an H-1B visa holder to stay in the U.S. as long as he/she applies and obtains a valid H-4 dependent visa. Our entire employment-based immigration team is so happy for our client’s family who can now reside together in the United States.

If you are interested in learning more about the employment-based USA visa process in general, about the H visa category, or H-1B and H-4 visas in particular, read our explanation of the H-1B visa category or our article describing the H-4 visa category.

What is an H-4 visa?

The H-4 visa is granted to the spouses and children under the age of 21, of H visa holders. An H-4 visa allows dependent family member to accompany an H visa applicant to the United States. H visa holders whose dependent family members can apply for an H-4 visa include: H-1B, H-2A, H-2B, and H-3 visa holders.
