My application to change status from H1B to F-2 is currently pending. Can a new employer file an H1B for me while the COS is still pending?


This would be possible, yes. However, the last approval to take effect would govern one’s status, so this requires caution. You probably should consult with an attorney before proceeding with this. (09.Apr.2018)
