I-539 Change of Status from B1/B2 to H-4 Approved for Filipino Client in Oregon
CASE: Change of Status from B1 / B2 to H-4, Same-Sex Marriage
Our client came to the United States in November 2013 with a valid B-2 visitor’s visa from the Philippines. Later, in March 2014, he married his same-sex spouse in Washington where the same-sex couple’s marriage is legally recognized. His spouse is an H-1B visa holder.
As a family dependent of an H-1B visa holder, our client can change his status from B1 / B2 to H-4. Our firm was retained and on April 14, 2014, we filed our client’s I-539 with all supporting documents to the USCIS. There were no requests for evidence. On July 2, 2014, the Change of Status was approved. Our client is now on H-4 and is with his spouse in Oregon.
