Exclamation H1B premium processing. VISA status effective date

Hi All,

I am in USA now on H4 Visa as a dependant of my husband who is on H1B. I am going to process my H1B Visa via a consultancy firm in premium mode. Since this process starts in April '13, lets assume i receive a response by May'13 if the Visa is approved or not.
My queries are as follows -
> if USCIS says that H1B is approved with COS, i recieve a new I94, does it mean that my status will be H1B effective immidiately? or it will be effective from Oct'12 always?
> How does USCIS respond for premium H1B cases?

If you want to know why i am concerned about this date - because my husband's H1B/ my H4 will expire on Aug'13. So i need to be on a valid 'STATUS' before that time.

Regards,
Rajneeta

1) Becoz it is H4 to H1B you can start working once H1b is approved. Yes your H1b is effective immediately. So in jun 13 when your husband's H1 expires make sure you guys dont file for your H4 again otherwise your H1 will be cancelled. This happens if filling thru same lawyer becoz they assume your wife needs h4 extension too......

2) Premium h1b cases are given decision within 15 working days from day of receipt. If there is a RFE then it might go maximum to 1 month from day of receipt.
