Topic: H1 to H4 EAD conversion - VERMONT Service Center

But when we come back on EAD, we won't be able to work right? Till we get the EAD? Would employers be ok with that gap? Is there something we can do to appeal to USCIS to speed up the processing?

Topic: H4 EAD jobs

There are two resources that I would recommend:

iRelaunch: Specifically for women returning to work after a long break. A lot of companies have targeted programs for moms returning after raising kids and iRelaunch is a great place to learn about these programs.

Upwardly Global: Helps skilled immigrants with EADs find jobs. Again, lot of companies have targeted programs that Upwardly Global participates in

Topic: H1B to H4 ead cos

Hi - can you explain this option a little more? If I am on H1, can I apply for a H4 directly in India without first doing a change of status?

Got it. I do think that they did not think of this scenario but I am amazed and how much of a rapport you and other have been able to build and how responsive they have been. I almost think fondly of the USCIS now! We will keep mailing them and if we hear anything back we will tell you and request you to do the same.

Anirban - I have a lot of respect for you but I have to disagree with you. This rule is meant for all those situations where someone is stuck in the US because the spouse is stuck in a backlog and to retain the families that are stuck in backlog. And remember we were also the ones who tweeted for this cause not just because it helped us but because we truly believed in the cause. Why do we have to create a split in our group ourselves?? If this situation does not apply to you, I can understand that you are less involved in it but it is very disheartening to somehow been seen as second class in this effort. Remember, my family has to be stay here because my spouse is stuck in a backlog just like all other families here.

Hi Neha - I sent the same question and also suggested that they make it the same effective date. Can you let me know if you hear anything and I will do the same.

Yes..I think if it is valid enough to extend your H1 then it is valid to extend your H4

Not sure how this helps..once you come back on H4, you will not be able to work so there is still a break in employment.

Hi - thanks for all your efforts. You should be very proud!

My question for teleconference same as before - if someone is transferring from H1 or F1 to H4 and if H4 will be adjudicated before the EAD would that be considered as a break in employment authorization?

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

Ok..agreed..let's keep it simple.
1. H1 guys are in backlog, spouses can't work. So people are suffering or planning on leaving the country
2. We have waited 4 years and are eager to get this through as soon as possible
3. We are excited with progress so far, what can we do to help move this forward?

None of this is new but it increases top of the mind recall for the agency. We could ask for timeline but we are not going to get any, so maybe we keep it simple?

Hi All,

The OMB Meeting is rescheduled to 02/17(Tuesday) at 4pm.

5 of our friends have accepted to go in for the meeting on Tuesday on behalf of us and try their best to push the rule for getting published.

Thanks a lot Anirban,Pooja,Balasubramanian,Vigneshwaran and Vinod for your interest and time in representing the community.

Rest of us can show our support to our Team representing us with our Tweets as before.Lets always stay on top of the tweeting list for the next 3 days.Can i request to add all the required # tags and people for the tweets�¢ï¿½�¦This time we need to get it done friends�¢ï¿½�¦this should be our last campaign before we see the rule getting published�¢ï¿½�¦I hope we are almost there and few more weeks to go...

Thanks again for the great effort from this group.



Anirban,Pooja,Balasubramanian,Vigneshwaran and Vinod:

Questions from my end:
--------------------------------

1. The obvious one - when will it be published? I know they will not answer this. But request them to give a date i.e. by latest March 31, that way few of us can plan out things. Try getting some idea of the date.

2. When will it be effective? Usually, it's effective 30 days but some are saying 90 days. I would request you to tell them to PUBLISH WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT. This is our face-to-face opportunity to put forward this request. Since we have been waiting for 4 years, the H4 community would request USCIS to make it efffective immediately.

3. Can they allow premium processing like for H-1B. Again I do not think this is possible right now, but maybe if we put forward our request they might think about it?

Thank you all for representing us. Please let us know if there is any teleconference option. Jaylg, can you request for that?




In addition to this,

4. Was there any change in the rule before sending to OMB ?



Adding my question to kamakazee here as well so you all have a consolidated list;

5. How will transfers from F1 or H1 to H4 and then EAD be handled without a potential break in employment status? Can they issue H4 797 and EAD card with same effective date?

Kamakazee - I would like to get a clarification on the concurrent filing because someone raised a concern that it looks like there may be a break in employment from the time that status is switched from say F1 or H1 to H4 and when the EAD becomes available. What do you suggest is the right forum to bring it up? Should we mail USCIS so they can clarify it in the final rule? Or is this something that you can bring up in your OMB meeting?

Great response with a personal attack. I think flowers might be seen as a potential security risk and I don't think we should do flowers.

I vote no for flowers..it is too over the top and unnecessary. We are professionals asking for a professional opportunity, let's keep it that way.

Are you saying US citizen children is not a factor for families waiting for the current H4 rule? For a lot of families, it is a crucial factor about wanting to stay in the US. It might be true for all H4 but that doesn't make it less true for this rule?
