I am in 15906820XX series received on May 26 receipted on Jun 1 and I see maybe 4 cases in 100 approved in my range. Just don't lose hope. There is no pattern.

I have I-140 from previous employer and SSN issued previously during F-1 status if that matters. Nobody knows. I guess clear cut from USCIS side are being processed. They gotta have some kind of automated checks in place and "risk factor" based automated approach. But that's just a guess. I am sure there are many other operational details only they are privy about. But until 90 days that is around Aug 24, there can't be anything which applicants can do. Just hang in there. There are more people who have not got anything than than approved. So pending is not necessarily a bad thing at this moment.




BTW, you can now submit inquiries about the status of your Form I-765 after your case has been pending more than 75 days. This is from USCIS- https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/processTimesDis...

Senram put it perfectly. Now let me fill in some more details. The judge Honorable Tanya Chutkan rejected plaintiff's claim of personal harm to certain class and denied preliminary injunction. It has not been decided that case has merits to proceed or discussed further. But reading at the brief, the judge smacked plaintiffs hard. It's extremely hard for case to succeed in its current form. Also John Miano whines about everyting. But people who bark don't bite.

John Miano appeared in court for Plaintiffs; who also seems to hate H1-B with a passion and linked to right wing racist immigration reduction organization called Center for Immigration Studies. Read more about the case at cis.org and under John Miano.
[/Q]-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I agree with what Senram and Supremacy said. This case has little to no merits to win even though DHS was not able to get rid of it. The case has been accepted for hearing per the latest news update from this lawyer's site:

http://www.peerallylaw.com/dhs-lost-motion-dism...

But IMHO John Miano or any other site trying to tell you that Plantiffs will win this case down the line must be smoking some good stuff, let them stay high on that, it works in our favor..so enjoy the freedom and lets not worry about this at all :)

Thanks for sharing the information. Will just wait patiently rather for someone to start approving EAC15906802XX series.

Good Luck to you !!



They have started and actively working on this EAC15906802XX series. 201, 202, 203, 210, 220, 222 & 227 have already been approved with 206 as RFE and 207 as "Date of Birth updated" status. So hang in there it will be any day now..good luck!!

800th number after my app number is approved .. and in between some people have posted here that they got approved too .. so it is some strange logic that is being applied at Vermont! Its a classic case of mera number kab aayega ....



I guess every stone has been turned to understand the logic behind USCIS processing but it ended up with no logic ;) Now the only logic left is "PP" i-e Parrot Processing which means applications are randomly picked up by a parrot at USCIS- Vermont Center..so which ever application he picks and put on the table, that gets processed. Ours got picked today and hence the approval :)

Is your spouse filing concurrently with I539? Just curious



Nope, We had her H4 filed in India last year when she went on vacation after completing her F1-OPT time here.. So when we applied for her H4 EAD she was already on H4 and I had mine H1/H4 extended in Premium Processing right before they froze the PP process. Basically I got my ducks in a row to have her benefited from this rule to the full extent. Her H4 is valid until May 2018 so we'll get EAD until 2018 now :)

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders


Hi,

We are in a similar situation. My wife is working on F1-OPT currently and have it valid until July 2016. I have my I140 approved. I am planning to apply for COS from F1 to H4 and H4 EAD simultaneously. I wasnt sure if both will get approved at the same time. I mean getting changed from F1 to H4 and H4 EAD being approved. May i please know if you got converted from F1 OPT to H4 EAD? If yes, did COS and H4 approval happened at the same time? I mean was there any wait time to get H4 approved after getting converted from f1 to H4?

My main concern is if H4 gets approved first and then if USCIS takes time to approve her H4 EAD, she cant work from the day she gets her H4 until her H4 EAD gets approved.


Please let me know.

Thanks.



Hi, Once you switch to H4 then you would have to quit the job and wait for H4 EAD approval. Concurrent filing is possible but I guess USCIS first adjudicates the F1 to H4 transfer(COS) and then will work on your H4 EAD case. Now for COS(change of status) itself it may take 3-4 months, so i would recommend to go out of country, apply fresh H4 at USCIS consulate and come back. My spouse had her F1-OPT expired back in July 2014 so she went to India for 4 months to have vacation time after her hectic Master's, applied H4 there and came back to States.

Hope this helps.. Good Luck!!

Hi Folks,

Case Status changed to Card ordered followed by Case Approved as usual :) **Tracker Updated**

my spouse had EAD before during F1 OPT in year July 2013- July 2014. Filed for H4 EAD this year(May 2015) based on approved I-140. Case was received by USCIS on May27th (Texas) routed to Vermont Service Center with receipt notice on June 1st and then finally approval on July 2nd.

Thanks to all who contributed to this H4-EAD battle through this forum, Email/Twitter campaign, joined USCIS calls, physicaly met OMB officials..string of memories down the lane :) Obviously its not over yet, we still need to fight for H.R.213 or EAD for I-140 battle.

To all those awaiting approvals, wish you all the best, hope and pray all you wonderful people get your EAD approvals soon!!

Couldn't have expected more on this Independence day from Amreika..LOL!!! Aaj to patiala peg banta hai apna..cheers!

This evening status was "We ordered your new card for receipt WAC15903646xx"
Now got other alert with status "On June 30, 2015, we approved your Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization , Receipt Number WAC15903646xx. We will mail your approval notice. Please follow the instructions in the notice"

What to expect next ?
any idea ? anyone ?



It means your case has been approved for sure so congrats for that :) I have seen this with other cases too. Looks like USCIS just doesn't like to follow sequence anywhere.. neither in their application processing nor in providing status updates ;) I would have expected the case to be approved first and then card ordered..anyways as long as its not a status alerting an RFE we should be good :) Wish you all the best and please update your case on the tracker if you haven't already done that..thanks!!

Yes my spouse's extended H4 has a start date of Oct 2015. But I had also enclosed a copy of her current H4 which had a start date of Oct 2012 & end date of Oct 2015. So typically I thought she should have had a start date from the date of approval & end date of Oct 2018.
Not sure whether to call USCIS or leave the whole thing as it is.[/Q]

You may call them to clarify but as some one said USCIS might not extend EAD for more than 3 years.. I think my spouse got lucky that DHS gave her H4 extension starting May 2nd despite the fact our H1/H4 were expiring August 2015. But as we are still awaiting her EAD approval so lets see what start date USCIS give us- Aug 2015 or current date of EAD approval ?

Am in the same boat. Current H1 & H4 valid up to Oct 2015. H1 & H4 extension approved from Oct 2015 to Oct 2018. Yesterday got physical copy of approval notice for H4EAD. Says valid from Oct 2015 to Oct 2018. EAD card not yet arrived. But am sure the card will have the same dates i.e. validity from Oct 2015 to Oct 2018. Which means although we applied so early & got an early approval, my spouse will not be able to work till Oct 2015.
Something for all extension case future applicants to think about.

Hi, I am wondering why DHS gave October date on your H1/H4 extension, is the valid date on your I797 same ? My H1 was expiring in August 2015 so I did premium processing in April end for both H1/H4 and DHS gave approval notice(I797) starting May 2nd 2015 to April 20th 2018. So I am guessing we wont have our EAD approval from August 2015 but rather from the date USCIS approves the EAD.. Lets see we are still awaiting our EAD approval :)

Hi,

I got the approval and my case was added to the tracker.

My Current H4 is valid till Sept 30th 2015 and I got the renewal from Sept 30th 2015 to sept 29th 2018. But My EAD validity starts from Sept 30th 2015. I suppose to get the approval from approved date correct?. I have provided them the previous (Visa copy) and current (approved I797) H4 docs.

Could you please let me know if anyone is on same boat?. What should I do?. Does anyone got the approval from approved date?. If I go to the SSN Office, do they provide me the SSN as my start date is from Sept30th 2015?
Thanks,



Hi,

Can you please confirm what was the start date on your approved/renewed I-797 ? Was it Sep 30th or something earlier ? Wondering if its Sep-30th then they might have issued you an EAD per 797's start date.

Thanks!

WOW.... I am also on the same boat... but my extension is August 15 till 2018. In the form I had filled the EAC for the most recent approval... Hmmmm this is tricky... I140 is not even with previous employer in my case... with our present I797 also they I am eleigible
-----------------------
Perhaps some more of us who had applied for EAD after H4 extension & received their EAD card in hand can clarify the start date on their card ?



Wow its bit shocking!! My spouse will be on same boat..i-e her H4 extension has already been approved from August 4th 2015 to 2018, so I guess USCIS will give EAD approval from Aug 4th then.. we may suck it up since Aug 4th is not too far and we havn't got an EAD approval yet :)

Well...EAC1590580230 was in approved status since past 10 days. I have been looking at this series as I fall in the same. Case after 230 are all rejected.

EAC1590680203 is the one approved again but from 204 till 229 all cases are still pending. Not sure why they are pending.





Hi you checked the wrong number.. the one in the series which got approved yesterday is EAC1590680230 and not EAC1590580230. The later (580230) is not for H4 EAD as it says the card was delivered on May 18th, well before rule was implemented :)

I submitted my H4-EAD on May 26 (EACXXXXXX90XX). No response yet. I am thinking of sending a return envelope with stamp affixed to Vermont Office so that the officer can send me the card as soon as he approves. Saves time for the officer and I get the card quick.



How about you drive to Vermont Service Center and get card in hand and say thanks to the officer in person ;) That way no possibility of loosing the card in mail.. No offense but this cracked me up. No intention to insult your thoughts..I sincerely hope it was just for humor :)

Hi my is EAC1590680 many from the same series got approval but after EAC1590680204 or 205 no movements.

Plz guide .



I am in the same series so hang in there :) #207 shows date of birth updated but there after until 230 all are showing pending. 231 onwards you will see rejections but nothing to worry, most likely they denied and provided receipt#s to all the applications with missing info in a row..

Don't worry about San, you can apply after getting you job also. You need just before running payrol.
Good luck for EAD and job .



I guess most of big organizations will need your SSN before they complete your hiring..may be its desi consultancies who work around and let you join.
