Hi guys,

I got approval on Aug 6th from VSC and my case status is "Case was approved". Could anyone tell me when can I expect my EAD card?


Thanks in advance



Me too, but in my case it's WAC.
I guess it may come any day now.

Keep checking mails. Not sure if all cases change to card is ordered or not?

I think most people with extension and H4 ead are stuck.
Also folks whose extension is up towards end on 2015 are stuck.
I guess bad luck to people who had extension due this year :(

Hello,

Filed H4 EAD along with H-1/H-4 extension concurrently. Got approval for H-1/H-4 extension on 7/23.

H-4 EAD still pending.

Anyone got approval for H-4 EAD who filed for H-1/H-4 extension as well?



Your 90 day period starts on July 23. If you are lucky they will approve soon, or they have till Oct 23. I am in same boat. Unfortunately bad timing for us :(

Yes. They screwed people up for extension by suspending premium processing.

Topic: Suspends H1B extensions premium processing till Jul 27th 2015

Wondering if anybody having same issue.

My h1b expires Aug 2015. I was planning on h1b h4 and h4 is concurrent premium processing till USCIS screwed up my plans by suspending premium processing.

So I applied for h1b/h4 extension under PP on may 21, 5 days before deadline. I got the h1 and h4 receipt, but lawyers are saying USCIS might have not picked it up under PP. USCIS hotline says that if applied before may 26, USCIS will process under pp, but nothing is certain for now and its totally messed up my travel plans.

Anyone else in same situation?

Note: this extension case and not transfer case.

USCIS totally screwed up plans because of this. They should have announced it a month earlier.

USCIS screwed some plans last week when it canceled premium processing.

I was planning H1b H4 and H4 EAD in pp on may 26.

Since my paper work was ready we applied h1 and h4 in pp last week and applied h4 ead today.

Anyone else in same boat. Did u get h1 receipt?

Hope u r right, but given no updates on H4 ead forms till 1 week before application acceptance and this all of a sudden hearing is making me very nervous.

They are comparing this to F1 opt extension, but that has still not gone to court, let alone get an injunction hearing.

This is all part of Obama master plan.
Show like he cares about immigration, show Republicans as total loosers and secure future for democrats.

They knew there will be an injunction and that's the reason for no updates so far and perhaps the reason they gave the opposition 3 months notice. They could have started this rule within a month, but did not.

It looks like 99% Obama's judge will put a stay order on this new law.

I guess time to start planning for no EAD.

If there is injunction, we should sue jobs USA cry babies, dhs, USCIS and Obama for playing with immigrants futures.

Looks like we are headed towards injunction. No wonder USCIS has not yet released guidance or paperwork.

H4 people should get ready for a even longer wait time.

Looks like she was appointed by Obama, which I guess is good news.
Bad news: we don't know her take on immigration.

If this is not thrown out of court, we are screwed and should pack up our bags and go home.
Might take months for them to declare result and we will be left hanging then in another age of uncertainty.
If this fails, don't see any meaningful immigration policy changes in the near future.

Our futures will be determined at 11.30 this Thursday.

Oh law:
My wife is eligible for EAD as per rule. But H-4 visa valid upto September 2015. We are in process of renewal. In this case, when to file EAD ? Can we file renewal post 5/26 and file I-765 as well ?

Discussion: Yes. You two can file I-129/I-539/I-765 concurrently beginning from 05/26/2015. Legally, the USCIS will not adjudicate and approve H-4 EAD application until after H-1B and H-4 extensions are first approved. But in practice, the officers can de facto adjudicate together in some cases. This was confirmed by the USCIS H-4 EAD teleconference last time. You can can file H-4 EAD separately after the H-4 extension is approved. But in this case, H-4 EAD may take a time to adjudicate.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

That is what I am hoping for, but its not clear.
As per oh law:

What is pros and cons of applying for H-4 EAD concurrently with change of status to H-4 or with H-1B spouse's application for H-1B extension or completely separately from the perspectives of minimizing the period of employment authorization gap from OPT to H-4 EAD?

Discussion: Potential benefits for existing H-4 applying for EAD is potential availability of filing H-4 extension and EAD application concurrently when H-1B spouse files his/her H-1B extension with H-4 extension. As H-1B and H-4 know, premium processing is available for H-1B available. Legally, premium processing is not available for H-4 extension (I-539) itself if filed alone, but when filed concurrently with the H-1B spouse's H-1B extension, they approve both on premium processing basis. The new H-4 EAD rule is not clear whether the same will happen if the H-1B spouse also adds his/her H-4 EAD application in such concurrent extension filings. Supposedly, the rule requires that H-4 must be first approved before they adjudicate concurrently filed EAD application. However, the USCIS H-4 EAD teleconference gives some hope that they may give a chance to adjudicate H-4 and EAD at the same time in some cases. Therefore, filing H-4 application and EAD application concurrently with the H-1B spouse's H-1B extension may help in this regard rather than filing H-4 EAD separately, especially for the F-1 OPT spouse who wants to change from F-1 to H-4. This is the USCIS policy issue and practice issue rather than law or rule issue and the USCIS may accomodate such processing before they start this program on 05/26/2015. When EAD is applied by H-4 separately from H-1B spouse at different time, such potential benefit is not conceivable, but the USCIS teleconference implies that filing H-4 and EAD applications concurrently rather than separately may still shorten H-4 EAD application processing because the adjudicators can have a discretion to adjudicate internally together. However, this remains a conjection at this point. We will have to wait for the next USCIS H-4 teleconference and any further announcements on implementation of H-4 EAD close to May 26, 2015. They indicated that they would certainly schedule another teleconferences for this program before May. Let's cross our fingers.

There is no premium processing for H4 EAD and we all know it.

But there is premium processing for H1b extension, and H4 ead can be applied as part if it.

Question for L2 ead was, what was the start date on your ead?
Valid right away, or it started at some future date?

Since this is the first run. H4 EAD has no premium processing. I doubt they will premium process the H4 EAD.

If H1 is expiring in Oct..I guess you can only file for extn 4 months ahead?
If you file 4 months ahead and premium process the extn..will your new H1 effective date start from current expiry (Oct) or day it was approved...

In the end you loose 4 months in extension?

I would think they will premium process it, else what's the point of applying for h1, h4 extension along with h4 ead.
Hopefully it won't be like this:
Apply 3 together in premium.
They approve extensions in 15 days, and then take 90 days to approve H4 EAD? They will need to retain all docs related to extension to be able to do this. Seems like more work, but we never know with USCIS.

Your extension will start only in October, but looks like H4 ead should be valid right away, since current h4 is valid.

I read the validity point a few times, but the start date of ead is vague. Maybe we can ask what happens in similar cases for L2 EAD.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders


Is that true? Can you concurrently apply for H4 EAD while processing H1 extension and H4 extension?
My current H1 will expire about OCt and hence need to apply for extension.
Applying on May 26 for H4 EAD might not work out well assuming it will be processed in 90 days..
That would be getting H4 EAD for 2 months.
It would be well worth if I could apply h4 EAD along with H1 extension..That would save a long wait..





You are lucky. Apply H1b and H4 extension along with H4 EAD on May 26.
If you apply in premium processing (only available since you are filing H1b extension), you are likely to get H4 EAD in June, along with both extensions.

I am 99% sure that it will work this way, but we should confirm with USCIS in the next H4 ead call.
