Processing time for status change to H4 from H-1B

asked Apr 20, 2017 in H1B: H4 Visas,Stamping by mailtosiddhu (200 points)
Hi, My six years on my H-1B including the recapture time is ending on 05/03/2017 and I am applying for my change of status to H4 from H-1B this week. How long does it take to take for this to be processed and my status to be changed to H4? I am asking this because my driving license is expiring on the last day of my H1B and I would require my new status to renew my DL.

Thanks !

The process will take up to 4 Months. However, you will receive a Receipt Notice from USCIS and you may use it to extend Driver License (Not guaranteed in most states)

Forms Preparation fee for H4 is $95.00, H1B (New/Extension/Transfer, Amendment) is $295.00 (includes Public Access file), H1B/I-140 RFE write-up Starts at $195.00, H4 EAD $95.00  and GREENCARD/PERM/I-140 starts at $500.00, check us out at www.vesaservices.com or email at aditya@vesaservices.com

Thanks for your input. Im in the same boat. Do you know how long it would take to get that receipt ? I checked with DMV and they said they should be able to help out given our situation, but then asked us to get the receipt first and then they will confirm more details.

Is there any way i can get a receipt faster ?

thanks in advance !
