Thanks.Can you please help me with below:

Did they honor the effective date you requested? OR did they gave different date? How far in future did you choose the effective date and what is the logic behind it?

My husband has H1 b valid till 2019 April.When we file concurrently for him (H1 TO H4 COS) along with my H1 transfer,wondering what effective date should we choose?

1.To avoid employment gap for him,if we choose August1 st 2018,(assuming by that time we will get H4 EAD card in hand) .Do you see any issues with that?

2.Is it better to keep my h1 start date as his effective date?Any issues with this?

No, it was in past. Clearly USCIS overlooked that.

OR did they gave different date? -> Will let you know once I received the approval notice in hand.I just got the online status changed.

How far in future did you choose the effective date and what is the logic behind it? -> Dates are requested as per Lawyers suggestion.We didn't influence the lawyer with dates. So please consult with your lawyer

Saturday (4/7) I got the receipt number for both H4 and EAD petition. I checked status online, both of them are approved. I am expecting the physical copy of the approval in 3/4 days. It will be interesting to see the COS date. This ends phase one of struggle. Need to do something with new found opportunity.

Hi cloud7:

I applied for H1 extension, H1 to H4 COS for my spouse and EAD all in 1 packet through premium process.
My spouse has H1 valid till end of June 2018, so we requested for a future date in July 2018 and the USCIS honored that.
The H1 to H4 COS and EAD were processed on the same day. We received the EAD card within a week. The EAD has a start date of July 2018.
