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.
You can file H4 EAD even though your H1B is only approved till Mar 2020. But, the H4 EAD validity will be given only until Mar 2020. So, it is better you file H1B extension, H4 extension and H4 EAD all together to get longer validity.
You do not need Biometric if you are ONLY filing i765 and not H4 extension.
If we file H1B extension, H4 extension and EAD concurrently, do we need to attach “previous” H4 approval (I-797) for H4 Status Proof document, or only using I-94 copy (which will have current visa expiration date) which we can obtain online is sufficient?
Hi Anil, thanks for the reply. So the most recent I-94 will have an expiration date corresponding to the previous H4 visa right (i.e. sometime this year since I need to renew it this year). That is fine right?
Hi, thanks for the info. Is it okay to apply for H1 and H4 extension through lawyer and H4-EAD by self separately? So, the applications for H1 and H4 wlll go together, but H4-Ead will go separately a day or 2 later. Lawyer is asking for $1000 consulting fee for EAD
First of all, GREAT ARTICLE!!! I wanted to thank you from bottom of my heart. You have brought assurity to a lot of immigrants in US with your i765 samples and package pictures. Big Thanks and Tightest Hug to you and others contributed.
Thanks for the reply. The lawyer denied to include H4EAD application (I am filing without lawyer help) with the H4 and H1b applications (which they are doing). The alternative would be to wait for the H1b receipt number and then use that number in Q29. That should only delay the process by a couple of weeks, right? It seems H4EAD is taking a very long time process.
