The short answer is yes. You can make a change of status request, but it must be done before your H-1 expires. You are not allowed to continue remaining in the country while on a change of status under I-539 after you go out of status. If you wish to know more, and you want the help of an attorney, by all means call or e-mail me at the number or address listed below.

Yes, you can do that as long as you are married and your spouse is in valid H-1B status.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or how I can be of further assistance to you in this matter.
