    Hi,

    As part of I-765 form, you have stated that eligibility category is (c) (26). Is it common for all ??
    Also as an H1-B principal applicant , iam planning to file H-4 EAD application process. Do you see any issues if I do it individually

    Thanks,

    Hi,

    My current Situation:

    My recent entry is in March 2018 and VISA stamp in my passport shows my status is H4. In April 2018, i have applierd for H4 EAD, but i got an employment opportunity, so have applied for COS from H4 to H1B along with H1B new pettion, while H4 EAD application is in pending status. My H4 EAD got approved in Aug 2018 and my H1B is approved in Sep 2018. I started working after my H4 EAD approval and as my H1B along with COS is approved after approval of H4 EAD, my current VISA status is H1B. As I didn’t travel after H1B approval, my recent USA entry i94 and passport visa stamp shows status is H4, though I am actually on H1B right now. Now my husband is applying his h1b tranfer. Now i would like to change my status to H4 along with his h1b transfer and continue to work on the basis of H4 EAD till it expires.

    I-94 (generated when i enter US in Mar 2018) - expires in Aug 2020.
    H4 EAD - valid from Aug 2018 to Aug 2020
    H1B - Valid from Sep 2018 to Dec 2019 (I94 number in I 797 is same as the one generated during my most recent entry to US in Mar 2018)
    My Job contract end time - Jul 2020

    Question:
    1. Would my COS from H1b to H4 possible though I have H4 visa stamp and Status as H4 in my I94?
    2. Would my situtation created any problem for the approval of my husband visa transfer, if apply my COS with him?
    3. If my COS is possible and it doesn’t create any issue for my husband H1B transfer, after approval of my COS from H1B to H4, can i work on the basis of existing H4 EAD ( which I got on the basis of my husband H1B petition before his h1B tranfer and is valid till Aug 2020)?

    Really APPRECIATE anybody’s quick help and response

    Thanks
    Anusha.

    HI,

    I have sent the H4 EAD extension application on a pending H4 renewal status. However it got returned to me with the reasoning "The payment amount is incorrect or has not been provided."
    I have attached a personal check of $410 payable to " US Department of Homeland Security". Can you please suggest what is wrong in it?

    Also in the rejection notice it says:
    "
    The application/petition has not been fully completed. One or more of the following fields were not completed.
    - Reason for applying
    "
    I found out that part was a mistake on my part that I missed the check box.

    Is it because of the error that they sent it back or there is still some error in the payment?

    Appreciate you help.
    Thanks
    MG

    Hi, I am applying for wife's H4 visa and H4 EAD extension along with my own H1B extension through premium processing. Is her current H4 EAD (expires on Dec 19) still valid when I receive my new H1B visa (reviewed). I assume that H4 visa and EAD renewal takes longer time. Is she allowed to work during this time on her existing H4 EAD.

    Thanks,

    H4 - EAD Process

    Hi,

    I applied for a new H4 Ead in Dec 2018 and my H1B and H4 validity was May 2019. Now my company applied for H1B and H4 extension is applied in Premium processing and could be approved before Jan 2019. What will happen to my H4-EAD application? Will it get a validity for May 2019 or the new approval date? Will there be a RFE as the new application was approved?

    Hi

    I have few queries regarding the H visas.

    If H4 and H4EAD are filed together with my existing employer and the application is in the pool for 1.5 months.
    Now if I change my employer and they will start H1B transfer, what will happen to the previously applied H4 and H4EAD?
    Do I need to call that application off and file via new employer again?
    Or can that application continue to be in process ?

    Does changing employer automatically cancel/revoke previous H1b peition or is it the case that employer has to initiate the revoke?
    Does previous employer has to notify the ex employee about the revoke request?

    Thanks

    H4 EAD will be cancelled

    USCIS is proposing to stop H$s from getting EAD.

    My wife's EAD will expire on April 19th. Is there a way to extend it? My I 797 will also expire on April 2019. Should I extend my I 797 to extend her EAD? Is there any other way to extend her EAD? Or can I apply for my I 797 extension even before 6 months before expiry?

    H-4 EAD Application rejected due to incorrect filing Fee. Fee instrument missing.

    Hi I applied for H-4 EAD in the bundle along with the extension of my husband's H-1 and my H-4. The extension application for H-1 and H-4 filled by our lawyers went through however my H-4 EAD application filled by me was returned with the error " Incorrect filing Fee. Fee instrument missing". However, I sent the credit card authorization form with fee payment $410.00 which per the website is the correct fee. The only other reason I see for rejection can be that the credit card authorization form was not on the top of the EAD application - which my guess is lawyers messed up the order by mistake. We sent the papers to them to be sent along with H-1 H-4 extension bundle so that my EAD can come along with the extension approval.

    The rejection was in my mailbox which I checked on 03/29 late evening. The rejection letter was on top and there was a sticker on my I-765 which had the H-4 receipt number. The letter said correct the error and resubmit. So I re-sent the forms without changing anything on I-765 on 03/30 with a check on top of $410 dollars. I also got to know while talking to a USCIS representative that my husband's H-1 and my H-4 was also approved on 03/30 but we got the receipt on 04/02 . My questions are:

    - As our visa extension has already approved, will my EAD be in normal processing?
    - For the question about visa in form I-765, we mentioned visa extension filed concurrently. Now that the forms got separate and my H-4 extension has happened before they received my reapplication, is there going to be rejection?

    My current EAD expires on July 10 and i dont have 4-6 months for EAD renewal under normal processing. In that case I might lose my job again. I already had to take a break of almost 5 months when I had to move from L-2 to H-4.
