What if DHS doesn't respond at all? What's the default action the court will take? I'm concerned if they decide to just not reply and ignore this lawsuit. ???

Topic: H-4 EAD Lawsuit Update: Source: Oh Law Firm


No. It will not be revoked immediately but USCIS has authority to stop accepting new applications immediately. They don't need a rule for that.

Rule-making process should revoke CIS authority to give EADs on approved 140 - hence renewals will not be accepted after the new rule takes effect.

I think -whoever is on the sidelines waiting to apply for H4EAD should start doing so immediately. No reason to believe USGov will take a different stance than DACA for H4EAD



I don't think H4 EAD is similar to DACA. The main issue with DACA is it addresses illegal immigrants and millions of people, however H4 EAD is for legal immigrants and a very small pool. I don't see any reason why it should be revoked for H4EAD.

if administration does not defend this and takes the rule making path, IV should still be able to defend this?



IV cannot do anything.

DHS/USCIS has authority to make rules and give EAD to different programs TPS etc.

Giving up this authority , is limiting what law/congress gave them.

It's not just H4 EAD, it will put question of DHS authority for different programs, going forward.

Lets see how DHS will defend their authority.



Yes, exactly my thought. DHS followed the entire rule making process and if they don't defend it and rather just revoke it, will raise a lot of questions. I am hoping they will defend it.

Can't believe that H4 EAD went through the rule making process and yet it's being challenged and possibly rescinded!! This raises a question on DHS entire rule making process itself. To get the rule passed, we had to wait several years. To revoke, it can be done in seconds!! Why even have rule making process then? If it get's revoked it will be a shame on DHS.

Topic: Timeline for passport receipt for dropbox


I did my dropbox submission for H1B Extension in Mumbai on May 3rd. On May 8th, my case was updated as

"Administrative Processing.
Your visa case is currently undergoing necessary administrative processing. This processing can take several weeks. Please follow any instructions provided by the Consular Officer at the time of your interview. If further information is needed, you will be contacted. If your visa application is approved, it will be processed and mailed/available within two business days.
For more information, please visit U.S. Consulate General Mumbai."

I have not been contacted yet and did not receive any 221g letter via mail as such. Can anyone provide more information regarding this status?

Same with me. I believe it's a normal update nowadays

Topic: H4 EAD card not received


It comes by 2 day priority. Tracking no not appear until they deliver it. You should
get it by tomorrow. If you are restless than call tomorrow and talk to level 2 officer and he/she will give you tracking no.



Yes, USCIS has not yet updated the tracking number and I have seen many cases stuck in this state and that's the reason I am worried. It's been 5 days and if it was mailed it should have reached on April 22 by 2-day priority.

Topic: H4 EAD card not received

My H4 EAD card was mailed on April 20, but I have not yet received it.. This is renewal, but I remember the first time I applied for H4 EAD and the card reached in 1 day. I have read cases of people not receiving the card.

Anyone else who faced this situation before, please let me know how long it took to receive your card and what process you had to follow to get it.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders


I just came across problem today, I don't know that is this right tracker to ask or not. But need some guideline o it.

My wife has valid H4 stamp up to November 2017 and we have changed her status from H4 to F1. She does not have F1 stamp. Question is can she entered in USA with H4 stamp since I want her to be on H4. I need H4 back to apply H4 EAD since her college is making problem for OPT.

Any help on it will be great. Also please let me know if anyone know which tracker can answer this question.



after F1 approval, her H4 visa/ stamp is invalidated. So she cannot come back on the H4. You will need to apply for H4 again. This is my opinion and I can be wrong. So consult a lawyer if required. A suggestion - she can go out of US and get H4 stamped again based on your H1b 797 approval.

Can any of you please guide and tell us know many days it took for H1 and H4 approval and what was the validity of the EAD card?

Topic: Premium processing for H4 COS & H4 EAD with H1B

I am in a similar but reverse situation.

Applied for H1 extn + h4 extn + h4 EAD in regular processing. Upgraded to premium processing last week and received approval for H4 EAD only!

Now I am worried whether EAD is provided for 3 years, because I read online someone got it for 1 year only.

Second, someone else H4 ead was approved but H4 pending for months :( so frankly, what's the point of the EAD if extension is still pending.

Anyone can share their experiences in a similar situation will be helpful.

Applied h1b + h4 + h4 EAD in regular processing on Feb 12.

Upgraded to premium processing on Apr 12.

Received msg that card is ordered and case approved for EAD on Apr 15

But, H1 and H4 case is still pending. Is there anything to be worried ? Also, will my EAD be for 3 years since its approved before H1 and H4 is approved.

It means your EAD card returned to USCIS as it was not delivered to you. Please call USCIS ASAP...

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders


Hi

Application Filed: 27 May 2015
Check cleared on : 03 June 2015
USCIS Notice Date: We never received any notice from USCIS, hence called them on July first week, and got the receipt# and also confirmed address that they have is correct.
USCIS Receipt Number: EAC1590******
Online Status Approved Date: 31 July 2015
Online status shows as : "On July 31, 2015, we approved your Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization , Receipt Number EAC1590******. We will mail your approval notice. Please follow the instructions in the notice."

so now, what all I need to receive? EAD card and approval Notice document (both or just the card?). based on the status does it mean they are yet to mail ? and will update the status again once they mail the documents ??

and also since we never received the initial USCIS notice itself, I am afraid if I am going to miss the approval docs :-(
In that case what are my options.

Can some one please help me in this regards.


You should have received the ead by now. Please call Uscis and connect to an immigration officer and get the tracking number.

i did not get mail(letter) from USCIS about the receipt number but got through email and text. Should i call them? My wife case is not approved yet.



if its been more than 30 days definitely contact USCIS ASAP, because when they send your approval letter and EAD , those may not get delivered as well.
