I am in H1B status, and my wife had been in H-4 status. We recently discovered that, when she last entered the U.S., her I-94 was shorted based on her passport expiration date, so actually has been out of status for the past several months. We are working to resolve her issues. In the meantime, though, will her status violation impact my H1B extension of future green card case?


No. A status violation by one spouse normally will not have a direct impact on the other spouse’s H1B or green card case. (12.Jun.2024)
