If I quit my H1B job, am I eligible for the 60-day grace period? Or, does the grace period only apply if I am fired? Also, if I do get a grace period, what about my H-4 spouse?


Yes, a person who resigns can still be eligible for the 60-day grace period, assuming one meets the other standard requirements (e.g., no violation of status, I-94 still valid). The same applies to one’s H-4 dependents. (08.Oct.2018)
