H4 and H4 EAD in progress and H1B up for extension

Hi @anil_am22,

We had applied for my wife’s F1 to H4 Change of Status in September 2020 and at that time my H1-B visa expiry date was December 2021. The H4 petition is still in progress and last update was Biometric appointment completed on 11th May 2021. Now my H1-B extension needs to be initiated. Could you please let me know if we should file H4 extension/new petition together with H1-B extension? Or is there a way to update the current H4 petition with the new H1-B petition so that the end date would eventually be updated? Appreciate any guidance you can provide.

Thank you!
