  • H4 visa -- I am undergoing divorce proceedings

    I am on H4 and am undergoing divorce proceedings and hence these questions.I am currently in India and may have to come to US to litigate the divorce

    1> Can a H4 visa holder rent an apartment/hotel room in her name?
    2> Can a H4 visa holder rent a car/buy a car in her name?
    3> Can the husband cancel the H4 visa of wife at his will?
    4> Does the visa stand cancelled immediately when the divorce is granted?
    5> Is the husband responsible for the wife's (H4 visa) medical well-being/expenses?
    6> Of the divorce proceedings are in on in US court, and the wife is on H4-- what are her rights as to place to stay, medical expenses, etc?
    7> Can the wife come to litigate the case in the US on a B1/B2 visa?
    8> Can a wife on H4 visa get a phone connection for herself in her name?

    re: H4 visa -- I am undergoing divorce proceedings

    I wish to inform you that as H-4 visa holder, you are not eligible to get a Social Security Number nor can you be employed, but you can hold a driver's license, open a bank account, and get an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number for US tax purposes. You can alternatively proceed on F1, B1/B2, H1B visa, etc.

      re: H4 visa -- I am undergoing divorce proceedings

      1> Can a H4 visa holder rent an apartment/hotel room in her name?
      Yes

      2> Can a H4 visa holder rent a car/buy a car in her name?
      Yes

      3> Can the husband cancel the H4 visa of wife at his will?
      Yes, he can petition to remove support.

      4> Does the visa stand cancelled immediately when the divorce is granted?
      Usually, yes

      5> Is the husband responsible for the wife's (H4 visa) medical well-being/expenses?
      Only if the court says so. Unlikely in your circumstance.

      6> Of the divorce proceedings are in on in US court, and the wife is on H4-- what are her rights as to place to stay, medical expenses, etc?
      She has none, unless she can pay for them.

      7> Can the wife come to litigate the case in the US on a B1/B2 visa?
      She can try. It can be revoked for fraudulent representation.

      8> Can a wife on H4 visa get a phone connection for herself in her name?
      Yes.
      Due to a recent promotion, I should now be referred to as Major Obvious.

      I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

      Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.
