I would normally ask my lawyer, but he's gone AWOL since a week ago.
I am a Canadian who came to the US as TN. My wife has TD naturally. Last week I received my H-1B approval with COS (change of status). There is no petition for my wife however. It appears my lawyer never bothered filing the H4 for my wife. I believe this means she is now Out of Status, since her TD is no longer valid.
In this case, should she fly out of the country ASAP? Or can we just relax and stay put in the US and file for her H4 (I539) to change her status?
