    When can I apply for H-4 EAD ?

    My spouse holds a L-1B visa and I am on L-2. His H-1B petition got picked in the lottery. We have approved I-140. Can I apply for H-4 EAD after H1 is approved or do I have to wait till Oct 1 ?

    New rule of amendment of H1B for H4 work authorization

    New rule of amendment of H1B for H4 work authorization, an approved Form I-140 is required to be able to apply. One of the thing that we are expecting is that the USCIS will actually make sure that the I-140 is still valid and has not been revoked. Note that a form I-140 approval can be revoked anytime by the employer unless an adjustment of status (Form I-485) has been filed and 180 days have passed

    H4 EAD RFE - Urgent help needed (I-94 End date)

    Hello every one,
    I applied for my H4 EAD when I entered US for the first time in Nov 2015. I got a RFE for my EAD application few days back.

    On my first entry i.e. Nov 2015, the immigration department at the US airport stamped my passport with the date exceeding that of my spouse's H1B end date. I applied for EAD using that I-94 document (i.e. reflecting the conflicting dates) .RFE is questioning my I-94 end date which exceeds that of my spouse’s H1-B visa end date.

    However on my second entry to US i.e. Feb 2016, my end date is in line to my spouse’s H1-B.

    I propose to draft a letter mentioning all the details (i.e. conflicting dates) and attach all relevant documents including my new I-94.Will this suffice?

    My concern is how do I present my case as genuine and explain the I-94 end date was an error committed by immigration authority?

    Request urgent help on how should I proceed with my case. Has anyone faced a similar issue?

    Apply H4 EAD using previous F1 EAD

    Hello All,

    I completed my studies in Dec 2015 in F1 visa.
    I got my F1 EAD.
    I am planning to convert to H4. Since my husband is in H1B, I can work in H4 visa.
    When am applying for my H4 EAD do I need to submit my F1 EAD in my supporting document as well ??

    Thanks and Regards,
    Santhiya

    Hi,

    Were you able to successfully change from F1 EAD to H4 and H4 EAD without losing the validity of your current F1 EAD?
    I am exploring the same option and hence would like to get your feedback.

    Thanks!

    After reading all the blogs/forums, I've been able to deduce that I can apply COS from F1 (OPT expiring on 02/2016) to H4 and H4 EAD simultaneously. What I haven't been able to find out anywhere is how should I fill the relevant forms I-539 and I-765.

    About my case:
    I started school in Aug 2013 on H4.
    Converted to F1 in fall 2014.
    Graduated in Dec 2014.
    Got OPT approved in 02/2015, valid till 02/2016.
    Now I want to apply for H4 and H4 EAD simultaneously.

    Following are my questions:

    1. In I-539, Part 4, Foreign Home Address is the address on my Indian passport?

    2. In I-765, Q.15, current immigration status should be "F1" or "H4"? I know I'm currently on F1 but I can only apply for this EAD on H4, hence, the confusion.

    3. In I-765, Q.14, Status of last entry should be "H4" as I entered the country on H4 and then changed to F1 (I haven't left the country since converting to F1)?

    4. If I'm applying both these forms simultaneously, how do I provide a copy of I-797 or receipt notice document proving my H4 status for I-765? Or will USCIS be able to ascertain that I've applied I-539 automatically? I am totally confused about this one!

    Any help on this matter is highly appreciated!

    H1 Transfer when dependant is on H4 EAD

    Hi,

    I am on H1-B and planning to change Job, have few questions regarding my wife's H4-EAD

    1) Does it affect my wife's H4-EAD when I transfer my current H1 to new employer ?
    2) She has H4-EAD until 2018 April, If I didn't get my I-140 approved with new employer by 2018 Apr, will it effect my wife's H4-EAD extension ?

    Thanks in advance

    Marrying an H1B holder

    Hello

    My fiancé is an H1B holder sponsored by his company in India. We plan to move to the US after our wedding in January 2016. But I have a couple of queries regarding my ability to work

    - I figured I would have to apply for an H4 as a dependent to even move there with him which is fine.

    -After some research, I discovered that the only way for me to work would be to apply for an H4 EAD once we move there but that is subject to my husband's application for a GC or extension of his H1. So would i only be able to apply for an EAD under these two conditions. If he opts for the later as his H1B is valid till 2017, would i immediately be able to apply for an EAD irrespective of how much his H1 has been extended?

    -If and when I'm eligible for and EAD, how long does the process usually take? also are there any other prerequisites to apply for an H4EAD

    -Unfortunately, my background is in journalism and screenwriting for which getting an H1 myself is a difficult proposition unless i go to the US and hope to find a job where a company would sponsor my H1. So do i have any other options in terms of getting a visa which would allow me to work within a few months of living in the US?

    Any advice and suggestion is welcome.

    Thanks!

    H4-F1 first & then H4ead together. If i get approval on either what happens to other?

    I'm currently on H4. I then decided to pursue MS so we applied for COS to F1. It's been 8 months i still don't have an F1 approval. Now we have filed for my H4 extension (which is about to expire) and H4 EAD together. Assuming I get either one of this status (F1 or H4 ead). What happens to other application? Would it automatically be cancelled or status would be changed again?

    Any expert advice would be helpful - Thanks!

    Extension of H4 EAD upon H1B transfer/renewal

    Hi,

    My spouse recently has received H4-EAD, based on my H1B status + I140 approval(2012). However, I would like to enquire if I plan to change the employer. Then, the new employer needs to reapply my GC(permanent residence) application along with new labor and I140 ? In that case, what will be status of the H4-EAD that my spouse had received?

    Could it be considered valid for continuous of employment, or the H4-EAD needs to be reapplied with new H1B transfer/renewal ?

    I would like to assess the risk involved of my changing the employer, and if it impact my spouse's working status (H4-EAD).

    Can anyone please share similar stories or assistance with this problem?

    Thanks!
