Regarding Q 21a., should we use the i-94 number on i-794(H-4) approval or the latest i94 which was updated after passport renewal? They both are different numbers and I am attaching H4 approval notice (instead of latest i94)hence the confusion.

Hi Anil,
Any pointers here. Should I enter the latest i94 even though I am providing H4 i-797 approval copy? Would this work?

Are your both I94s have future expiry date?
I would enter the latest, i.e. after passport renewal, and enclose it with the application.

Yes, both have same future date. Related Q would be should if latest i94 number is entered does it make more sense to attach latest i-94 instead of H4 i-797 approval copy? Or that doesn’t matter?
Please confirm

I think they will look arrival record only from latest I94
but your legal status from the H4 I797 copy.

IMO both documents are necessary.

Thanks, I will add latest i-94 copy as well in the application packet. Since they state either one of them I wanted to make sure. Seems it would be sensible to include both to avoid surprises.

Also do I need to include copies of white i94 paper copy which is issued at land PoE?

Quick question: If H4EAD renewal application is being filed with H1B (i129) as well as H4 extension (1539), which I797 number are we supposed to write for pnt: “29” in form I-765? The current approved i797 which is due to expire in a month?

Hi @Som

You have to write “Filed concurrently” and not the receipt number.

Thanks Anil for quick response! In the form it has 13 character boxes. How to accommodate the phrase “Filed concurrently”? Can you please help provide a sample?

Just write it without caring for boxes.

Or you can just write “concurrent”.

@Anil.Gupta - I have similar situation as Venkat - I understand the answer should be ‘Yes’ for that question. Is it recommended to elaborate under Part 6 Additional information stating the previous application for I765 was withdrawn ?

Hi @bivinster

You can describe the reason for denial if you want.

Hey @Anil.Gupta it’s not denial. I submitted H4 EAD application at Vermont center as soon as I140 got approved. It’s still pending decision. Now I would be doing H1 and H4 extension so I was thinking to withdraw the Vermont application for EAD as my extension would be filed in California.

Now when I fill the new h4 EAD application I see you have answered to notate yes where the question applies around if the applicant has applied i765 prior. Do you think it’s better to explain that I had to withdraw my application as the primary applicant approved stay was less than 6 months.
