    Can We file H4 EAD Extension with H4 Extension receipt?

    My H4 EAD is expiring this September, 2017. My Husband filed his H1 extension and my H4 extension under premium processing in March, 2017. We have received the H1 B approval . However, my H4 extension is still inprogress.

    Question: In current scenario, Can I apply for my H4 EAD extension submitting my husband's H1 approved petition and my H4 extension receipt? Has any one successfully got their EAD by applying using the H4 extension receipt alone?

    I got my H4 Visa couple of week ago and my spouse does have i140 approved, but since i have some commitments i cannot move to US immediately, so is it possible that i can go to US for a Week and get my i94 to apply for EAD and come back to live in india till i get EAD? or do i have to stay in US till i get my EAD.

    can you please help me out with this..
    For Filling EAD only, You need to be Physically present in US, Once its filled you can go back . One thing to be noted, EAD card will be send to US address and some one should be there to collect it .

    Please clarify.
    Your spouse cannot work currently on H4 Visa. You need to get your Green Card process initiated and reach the I-140 approval stage. Only then you are eligible for applying EAD (H4) for your wife.

    - Not a legal advise

    H4B EAD eligibility

    I am on my H1b visa right now and I haven't initiated my green card yet. Now, will my spouse be able to work here with a H4B visa? Or do I have to have my green card process initiated and then wait for I-I40 approval until my spouse can start working?*

    Please clarify.

    H4-EAD renewal while H1B/H4 extension is in process

    Hi,

    My H1b(and spouse H4 and H4-EAD) is expiring on 07/10/2017.
    My employer is filing a regular extension this week.

    What are my best options to avoid any issue with the H4-EAD as my wife is working full time?

    As per the lawyer H1B extension is taking around 10 months these days.

    1) Should I go for a premium processing for H1(my company doesn't cover premium so i would have to pay $1500) and upon approval(likely to get in 15 days) apply for EAD in march(due to 120 days restriction)

    2) Should I go for a premium processing for all 3(costs me $1500 for H1 and $810 for H4-EAD as lawyer and application fees )?

    3) Let the regular H1 extension continue and apply H4-EAD in march(as soon as it reaches 120 days) on the basis of the H1B extension application receipt number, if its possible, if it is how would USCIS determine the expiration of the new EAD?

    Please advise.

    Regards,
    JP

    H1 B to H4 EAD

    Hi there, I have H1B visa and Currently my H1B extension is in process and I have I 797 C form. (expiry date for h1b was 10/31/2016).
    My husband will receive his I140 soon and then I am thinking to apply for converting H1b to H4 and H4 EAD when my husband will apply for his h1B extension.
    So question is
    1) Can I apply for H1B to H4 and H4 EAD when my current H1B extension is still in process.
    2) If we want to provide future date for H4, what is the ideal time period for that? So that I can work until that date on my current h1B visa.
    We are planning to file my H4 along with his H1B extension in premium processing.

    Please guide

    Thank you

    d. No Wedding Invitation or Wedding pictures.

    Questions I have -
    a. No wedding pictures or invitation will that matter. Her name is my passport as mine is renewed while her's still has validity so my name isnt there.
    b. H4 applied in US will that help to support the H4 case?
    c. Any advise of how I can handle this situation and receive a H4 with any rejections.

    Kindly throw in all your advises including references if any.
    Your time and advise is immensely appreciated.

    Thank you
    Your spouse name should be entered in your passport if you are applying for h4. Yes you need to have her name on your passport which you already have

    They can use the existing valid visa stamped with your I-797 to enter U.S. In addition, they need to carry the same set of documents that you carried when you enter the first time.

    Just carry all the documents you took at your first POE.

    http://www.immihelp.com/forum/showth...-to-expiration

    Mandatory:
    Valid passport, valid H4 visa, your husband's latest H1B approval notice

    Good to have:
    Your spouse's latest 2-3 months pay slips, an employment verification letter from your spouse's employer to prove that he is still employed.

    need more info on h4 work authorization

    I have approved I-140 which makes my wife eligible to apply for H4, but she is currently in India and never been to US till now and still waiting for her H4.
    I see she can't apply for EAD from India and she needs to be present here. Can she go back to India and continue working there during time after filing and before its approved?

    reg:urgent help needed

    Hello all

    My wife and I are planning a trip to India
    We qualify for all requirements for Drop box
    My wife got her EAD and started working on H4 EAD
    Does that make her still eligible for drop box because she is still on H4 or should she go for an interview because she has got a H4 EAD and started working

    Thank you
