Well I am in the same boat. It's been hundred days I haven't got my h4ead . My h1 expires November 2nd week . I am going to loose my job at this rate. Very depressing. Not sure why they said they are still processing feb cases. I see jun and some jul change of status getting approved. Well they know how to mess with people's lives for sure.
Between did you try opening an service request online? I haven't entailed one yet I am panning to do that . Don't think it's going to help anyways!
@arippling28 - Did the H1 to H4 COS approval start date is as the date your H1B expired. In my case the approval notice date is as of the date they approved the petition not the date requested on the form. How will we justify the gap.
