I came to the US in 2009 and completed my Master of science in Computer Engineering in 2011. I worked with a semiconductor company from 2011 to 2015 (I changed locations in 2013 but worked with the same employer).
I had to move back to India as my marriage ended in 2015. I had my support system back in India and hence moving to India turned out to be really helpful.
I recently came back to the US on an F1 visa and started my PhD program in January 2018.
But I realized that a PhD is not a piece of cake and it is a lot harder than I thought it to be. So I started applying and found an employer who filed for an F1 to H1B visa transfer.
- Is this allowed? F1 to H1B while pursuing graduate studies?
- I remember giving my marital status as "single" instead of divorced. Will this be an issue while the I-129 is being processed?
- Are there chances of a H1B rejection because I am on an F1 visa?
