Processing time for new H4 EAD

Hi Anil,
Thank you for the instructions you posted earlier on how to submit the H4 EAD, it helped.
It’s new H4 EAD application for my wife and it was submitted and the case status showing the date as Nov 20th. They withdraw the processing fee and do you have an idea of how long does it currently take to process the new EAD Application?
