Default is new H4 required if H1B is transferred ?

Hi,
company A did H1B and H4 (both approval notices. No Visas stamped yet)
company B is doing H1b only. Can the dependent candidate stay on company A's sponsored H4 approval ?

sincerely appreciate any input

Thanks in Advance

No need to file H4 till her current H4 expires. As long as you are maintaining continuous H1 status (without gaps), H4 would remain active till its current validity even if primary H1 applicant changes jobs. You can file her H4 extension of stay petition 90 days in advance from the current H4 expiration date.

Shanky,

As you already know, the H4 is only valid as long as your H1 is valid. If companyA has a policy or if in future they decide to revoke h1, then you may not even know.

If I were you , I will go ahead and file for h4 transfer too.
