Posted by H4EADGirl (36) 04 Apr 2018#26

Hello Friends,

My Current H1B and H4 EAD(spouse) are valid till Sep 2018.

I am also about to file all three H1B Extn/ H4 Extn/ H4 EAD concurrently. Little confused as what to fill in Q22 of I765 form for H4 EAD.

"Q22. Please provide most recent receipt numner of your prinipal H-1B spouse approval for form I-129"

1- Should I leave it as Blank as we don't know till H-1B is filed
or
2. Should I provide the receipt number from last H-1B approval but that is valid till Sep2018.

How did you guys filled it during filing ?

Regards

I am sorry I should remember this as I filed last month but I dont. I think we left it blank. Why dont you ask you ask your (or primary's) company attorney. I assume they will be filing all three concurrently for you. In my case, my husband's company prepared everything and just sent me 1/2 pages of I765 to fill up. And I dont remember this question. I can check and get back to you tomorrow. But safest option will be to ask your attorneys.

my employer filed H1+H4+H4EAD all together in premium processing on MArch 26th. My employer pays for H1 and H4 but I gave 410$ check for EAD. today I see that the 410$ amount is deducted from my bank account , does that mean my H1 and H4 and H4EAD are all already approved.

Thanks in advance.

My case (H1+H4+H4EAD all together in premium processing) was received on Mar 21st, checks deposited on Mar 23rd. H1B was
approved on March 27th and EAD card received on April 4th. You should get your EAD card by next week. I registered my cases on USCIS website and signed for Mobile/Email alert.

Any other updated from other members ?Any one filed in April are getting updates on your H1 TO H4 COS ?

Also can you please suggest how many pay slips are you providing for h1 to h4 cos to prove that you are on H1B status?

How much time is it taking for receiving EAD card after H4 EAD approval?

1.I have H1 valid till 2019 February.If we keep effective date(change of status) as August 1st,2018 but H4 is not yet approved by August 1st, can we continue working on H1B till H4 is approved OR do we need to stop working on August 1st even though it's not approved?

Wondering if we will be considered out of status after August1st if H4 is not approved by that time?

2.Also how are you able to track status online? looks like now a days status is not updated immediately.Particularly in cases where we need to stop working on H1 ,as soon as H4 is approved, it's possible that we might continue working on H1 as we may not know that H4 is already approved due to delay in online status display?

How are you handling this situation? Is effective date feature really helping you?

Thanks for your reply .
I believe they can cash the check for EAD only if the h1 and h4 is approved.
Do they cash the check first and then process h1 and h4 and EAD?
Thanks for your response

Is there a way that I can get the h4 EAD receipt number.

I can see that there are some id’s in the bank statement for the check deposited but that doesn’t see to be a receipt number.
I called the USCIS today and they said to wait for some more time for the receipt number . He did not even ask my details to look in.

We concurrent filed H1b+H4 COS +H4 EAD on 3/28, receipt notices for H4 COS and EAD were received on 3/30. Today received an alert says my h1b petition approved, however COS and EAD case status still show "Case Received" on USCIS website. Does this indicates that my H4 COS and EAD applications were not processed together through PP? Anyone has any idea about this?

Give it a day or two. Dont get stressed out. Ask your lawyer. I had the exact same experience. later found out that status update on H4 and H4EAD was a but delayed. H4 should def be PP. I can't say about H4EAD but it usually is if filed concurrently.

Hi,

We have an upcoming renewal this month.Since the MSA is under works in my husband's company,we have to wait until mid May to file for the renewal. I never wanted concurrent filing(HI+H4+H4EAD) but reading all the posts it looks like if filed under premium,chances are it might all be approved together.Here are my few questions:

1]With all the RFEs right now,what are the documents that H1B applicant must submit?We never had any RFE in the past and do trust our lawyer but we want to make sure we are well prepared,so please help.
2]If for any reason H4EAD falls through the crack means is not considered under premium,will I be able to reach out to USCIS for my case myself or I have to be dependent on our lawyer since they filed it.In 2016,my EAD took more than 100 days and I had to reach out to local congressmen, so if it happens again,will I be able to do the same by myself?

We had put a starting date (in August) on the COS+H4 EAD application, probably this caused issue for not approved altogether with H1B through PP. Anyone knows?

Hi Are you sure your attorney entered 'Filed concurrently with this Request' for Q22 in I-765 - H-4 EAD form. Please suggest the same. Iam applying my wife's H-4 EAD independantly as my company only files H1B extension & I-539 . Please suggest asap.

Hello jonam25,
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?
3. If I register on USCIS, will there be a problem for the case? Will the attorney know about it, as they had mentioned about violating the terms, if I did so.

Thanks,

Hello Friends ... Need small advice ...

I am applying my H1B extn+h4 extn + new H4 EAD concurrently ....

Today i received H4-EAD (G-28) form from attorney for review & signature ,
For Question 22: (c)(26) Eligibility Category: My attorney filled the box with my I-140 receipt number .. is it correct ???

I read somewhere saying , it shouldbe be my H1B receipt number rather than I-140 receipt number .... If its H1B receipt number , do i need to give my current receipt number which expires in July ????

Appreciate your advice ....
