Hi,
Can you please help me with concurrent filing of H1B - H4 and H4EAD

Did you post the 3 applications in the same envelope?
Or Do we have to maintain separate envelopes?

Thanks
Srilatha

Refer to the address to which you need to send them, if they are different then of course you would have to package accordingly.

Hi Ketan

I have questions related to H4 EAD Form. If we apply all together in I765 form there is a question no. 18 c 26, which receipt number we should be updating it there. Old I797 which will expire soon or new I797 for which we have Receipt number...

Thanks in advance

Hi. How long did it take for your applications to get approved? My lawyer filed all 3 applications together. My husbands H1B extension, my H4 and EAD all were filed as a premium processing, my husbands H1B got approved, but my H4 still shows "case was received" My visa expires on Septwmber 24th. Just need to know the processing time and how the entire process works

I sure do hope i am in same boat as you. Filed PP late august. USCIS Case Status updated to approved today for H1B and H4 but still showing "Case Was Received" for H4 EAD. I am hoping they approved EAD.

Did you apply to California Center by any chance?

Yeah. I applied for CA center. My lawyer was under the impression that all 3 will be done around the same time. I am due for a promotion in my company and I had to break this news to my manager yesterday. I am hoping that things get through by 24th. I called USCiS yesterday and they said they are still looking at applications from Dec 2015. This is so frustrating. :(

to Tanyagargi:



If they are filed in premium processing, everything will be approved in 15 calendar days. If the H1B is approved, then the H4 and the H4 EAD approval will show up soon - within a couple of days. I have seen cases where the H4 EAD and the H4 showed approved and the H1B still showed "case was received", which does not make sense as the H1B has to be approved for the H4 and H4 EAD to be approved too.

It all depends on how they update the status in the website. In your case, since H1B shows approved, H4 and H4 EAD will soon show approved too.

My Husbands H1B was approved in June. And we thought h4 will be done simultaneously. But the status still shows as case recieved. Is there any other way I can actually find out what is actually happening about the case? People at USCIS don't seem to have a clue about which files are being processed. I see people filing in June and getting there applications approved, so how can applications from Dec are still pending

Hi t2vk,

Would you please post the timeline?
We have done something similar: H1, H4, and EAD renewal together sent to the premium processing center. They received it on December 5, 2016. It is December 12. We got our receipt notices, however, nothing's approved, yet. How long did it take for you? Please let me know.

The 4 moths rule has been changed as what I found on USCIS website.

https://www.uscis.gov/working-united-states/temp...

See filing tips--below the table it says: It's not 120 days but 180 days.

"Validity of Employment Authorization

You will not be authorized to work until USCIS approves your Form I-765. Once your employment authorization is approved, the expiration date on your EAD should be the same date as the expiration date on your most recent Form I-94 indicating your H-4 nonimmigrant status. You are only authorized to work through the expiration date on your EAD. If you still will be eligible for work authorization after that date, you should file for a renewal EAD by submitting another Form I-765. You cannot file for a renewal EAD more than 180 days before your original EAD expires."

Hello friends,
H1 + H4 + H4 EAD concurrent premium filing.
H4 and H4 EAD approved today and waiting for H1.

Question:
1. H4 EAD card: Processing time for H4 EAD card after I 765 approval?
2. SSN: Once I receive H4 card, then only we can apply SSN, right? Processing time for SSN after application?

Thanks,
