I applied for COS from H1 to H4 on October 1st, 2019 and concurrently filed H4 EAD. I called USCIS today to expedite my case as its been over 5 months and ended up expediting both H4 and H4 EAD separately. I got the below responses after the call via email
"On March 4, 2020, you or your representative contacted USCIS concerning your I-765 to notify us that you were requesting an expedited review of your case. Below is a summary of what we found and how the issue has been or may be resolved.
Thank you for your inquiry. Your case is currently being adjudicated. You should receive a notice of action within 45 days.*
*A notice of action may be in a form of Approval Notice, Denial Notice, Transfer Notice, Request for Evidence, or Notice of Intent to Deny."
"On 03/04/2020, you contacted USCIS concerning your I-539 to notify us that you were requesting an expedited review of your case. Below is a summary of what we found and how the issue has been or may be resolved.
We reviewed your case, but we need additional information and evidence before we can make a determination on whether your request meets the expeditious processing guidelines.
We need the following information and evidence:
You may submit a letter explaining why your case qualifies for expedited handling due to your claim of having a severe financial loss to a company or individual. Please provide us any documentation or evidence you may have to support your request for expedited processing."
I realize now that I should have asked only to expedite EAD. I do not have any financial implications at this moment with the delay in H4 just that I am worried about the increasing gap from my last employment. How do I handle this situation? Can I ignore the request to provide documentation for H4? I am worried that it may cause delay in EAD processing which is tied to H4?
