H1 transfer and H4 EAD expiration

Hi Anil,

My H1 is until Dec 31 2021 and so is my spouse H4 EAD. Usually my client company renews the contract yearly. So I will not be able to get the client letter until the last quarter.
However I am planning to switch my job. So if I do, will I be able to file/renew my spouse’s H4 EAD along my H1 transfer too? Will it use the existing I140 approval? It’s been more than a year that my I140 got approved.

I heard the processing time for H4 EAD is high these days, so would like to apply early if possible.

Thank you in advance.

You can try filing H4 EAD with H1B transfer. In some cases, USCIS does approve H4 EAD.
