Topic: H1 to EAD H4 Conversion

Thanks a lot for the update Sree04. It is good to know that USCIS honored the future date for CoS.

The question is why they did not honor it for everyone.

Thanks again!

Topic: H1 to EAD H4 Conversion

Oh Ok, I thought ravic's spouse was primary and he was converting to EAD based on his spouse's 140 petition.

I guess it is the other way round, my bad!

So we still need to know what happened with future COS date.

That's something not expected. Even if we forget about start date, expiration date should not be your H1B validity but your spouse's H1B validity date...

Many Congratulations!!! I guess taking risk paid off :)

What is the start date on the EAD approval notice. I suppose if they take future date into consideration EAD should only be active after that date??

Topic: H1 to EAD H4 Conversion

Concurrent application H4 Ext + H4 EAD is different from COS H1 to H4 + H4 EAD. Because in latter you are not in H4 status and to be able to be eligible for EAD you should be first in H4 status. Nonetheless, it should not be difficult for USCIS to put the start date on EAD that matches the start date of H4 in section 2a of 539. They do approve H1B petitions that start from a future date ( 1st Oct) every year. But we don't know for sure that this effective date option is introduced for this reason or not.

Topic: H1 to EAD H4 Conversion

As this comes from Ron Gotcher, I have to believe what he says for now. He is one of the best immigration attorneys.

But I still don't understand the point to introduce this option on the form if it has no relevance. Also from USCIS FAQ's :

" 4.Will USCIS backdate the beginning validity date on the EAD to the start of my H-4 status if the Form I-539 is
adjudicated
before Form I-765?

No. We will not backdate the validity date of your EAD to the time your H-4 status was granted. Your EAD will be valid
beginning on the date that USCIS adjudicates your Form I-765 or the date you acquire qualifying H-4 status, whichever is
later. Additionally, your EAD will expire when your H-4 nonimmigrant status expires. "

Why would USCIS say "whichever is later" if EAD application is only going to be processed after status change approval.

I guess, my heart is still making my brain to work and give enough reasoning.

Hi greenbaypacker,

What future date did you apply with? I mean how many days from the day of application? Can you also keep us updated with status of your application. This will help a lot of us.

Topic: How to receive pending payment from previous employer.

Hi Experts,

I am in the US on H1B visa and changed my employer 6 months back.There was a bonus payment that was due with my previous employer.September 12th 2014 was my last day with my previous employer.
He recently made me a payment of $2000 and paycheck mentions bonus payment and the pay period is 1st October- 31st October.
I want to understand if this can create a problem in my GC process. If yes, then what is the best way to receive the payment?

Thanks!

Hi Vish,

Did you get clarification on your case? I see you deleted your RFE entry from the spreadsheet. Did your husband not receive RFE on his case?

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

"If something is wrong, go fix it, dont commit the same mistake again and justify it. If anything you're only proving how bad it is. "

You do not follow your own argument right. If something is wrong here then it is the broken immigration system. Out of which not able to bring your spouses when you have a GC is also one thing. You should fight to get that fixed and not fight against fixing H4 EAD issue. It's like, if I can't have it I won't let you either. Right now, L2 are allowed to work, but we are not asking the government to take away that right from them. We are just asking the same treatment for us and so can the Greencard holders who cannot bring their spouses easily.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

You are again forgetting the point that this is not for all the H4 visa holders. This is just for those, whose spouses have approved I-140 and that means they are just waiting for their priority date to become current. Ideally, EAD should be given to both H1b and h4s while they are waiting for the priority date, but the pain of H4 dependents is far more than H1's who are tied to one employer. Also, there is provision for H1B holder to change employer if the employer can sponsor GC.

Speaking of getting more privileges than the primary, the H4 visa holder status will still completely depend on the primary's visa status. So I don't think it is more privileged.

Topic: EAD for H4 Visa Holders

Thanks Vinod, kamakzee, GC2011sep and all the others who were part of meeting with OMB. Congratulations! With all of your efforts half of the battle is won. This victory will bring even more people together to fight for the cause. I wasn't posting in this forum earlier but was actively following it and also posted my comments in the February comments. Today , I couldn't stop myself to thank and congratulate the people who have made this happen.

There are very interesting facts pointed by kamakzee which address the positive impacts of the rule. I would just want to add my two cents.

Although, I am not an expert in this matter but will share what I feel. In my 4 years of professional experience in USA, I have come accross various instances where the employers were not able to find people with right skills for full time positions and ended up sending jobs to offshore. And this is when there is a highly educated talent pool(h4 visas) available right here in the U.S, but employers do not have access to them. Also, there were cases where the H1B employees left the country because their spouses cannot work. Again, forcing employers to outsource the job to the offshore offices as they want to retain the skills needed. For each job that is sent offshore, US loses tax dollars (Social Security/Medicaid), spend per person(which spurs the economy). These taxes are then paid in the country where job was outsourced.

I know when the country was struggling through the great depression, President Franklin D Roosevelt introduced the WPA( Work Process Administration) to start project on public works. That included building roads, parks and other infrastructure so that the unemployed gets employment. When a person earns income, he can spend money and in turn make other businesses run. This is like a chain reaction.This project alone employed 3 millions and helped the economy to spur back. See more from below references:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Works_Progress_Adm...
http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/fdr-...

Letting people sit idle is the biggest setback for any economy. And here we have highly skilled resources sitting idle, not working,isn't this a big problem? If these people are allowed to work, not only U.S will earn tax dollars, but it will help other businesses to boost. Housing market will definitely boom as lot of couple would want to stay in the country. Real estate is a big contributor to the economy as it creates jobs is retail, offices and manufacturing. More details can be found at:

http://useconomy.about.com/od/grossdomesticprod...

Seeing the skilled immigrants as a competition to citizens is not reasonable. They are not a competition, they are opportunity to help boost the economy. History is an evidence that immigrants have helped to grow this country leaps and bounds and if allowed to work, H4 visa holders will not sit just idle and avail the facilities created by tax payers money but they will contribute to it.

All, please correct my mistakes and suggest if this makes sense.
