L2 to H4 EAD with counselor processing

Hi Anil,

If you can provide with any insight on my below issue, it would be of great help.
I noticed similar question elsewhere on forum, but unfortunately no resolution.

I am currently working on L2 EAD which is expiring in Sep 2021 and my husband will be moving from L1B to H1 through counselor processing so will have time to activate H visa by July next year.

Is there a way to transfer from L2 EAD to H4 without any gap in work because once I am on H4 status I think I will be losing my L2 EAD status. Also, I have an approved i 140.


There is no real way to avoid the employment gap between L2 EAD and moving to H4 EAD.

You will have to wait for your H4 EAD to be approved and it can never be zero days. In the cases that i know of, people usually wait for about 3-4 months on average.

Thank you! Appreciate your help on this.
