Thanks!
As per this thread it looks like they do consider latest I94 expiry dates to determine EAD expiry date (unless of course there is some oversight due to bad luck)

Like you said fingers crossed.
Good luck!

Hi All,

Can someone tell me how long before I can apply for H4 visa and H4 EAD renewal before the expiry date?

Thanks!

Folks

Need your inputs on this case-

Current EAD expiring by Jan 8 - renewal pending with vermont, received date 10/16. H1 and H 4 filed with Nebraska earlier was approved on Nov 30 and got the approval notices too.

Wondering if this EAD will come thru in the next 2 weeks. I did try to convert H1 to premium u forturnately H1 was approved in regular the same day premium upgrade was placed so premium was rejected.

Not sure what my options are at this time to
Expedite? Looks average processing time is more than 90 days which is concerning

Any thoughts or suggestions on the above situation

Below are the timelines for my case
Oct-17 == > Filed H4 EAD with Company A's H1B and I140. H1B, H4 and I94 expiry was Sep-19
Dec-17 ==> Changed employer and filed H1B transfer with company B in premium. Got H1B and H4 till Dec-2020 with I94 attached
Jan-18 ==> Got H4 EAD got approved and reveiced card with validaity till old I94 i.e. Sep-19.

Planning to check with USCIS as to why EAD was not given till Dec-20. As per my understanding, at the time H4 EAD was approved (last week of Jan-18) latest H4 and H1B was valid till Dec-20. Is that a fair assumption?
Will updated if I get any response from USCIS

Hello Friends,

I have submitted the documents for H4 EAD and i forgot to send the "G-1145". Will this have any impact on the processing of the H4 EAD case?

Can i send a separate envelope with this form alone? Any suggestion is welcome.

No effect on processing. Just that you won't get instant email/text notification

I filed for an H4 EAD on Jan 02nd. And on Feb 01st there was a second EAD application filed along with H1B extension in premium processing while the first petition was still pending. In short now I received 2 EAD cards valid for the following dates:

EAD1: 2/2018 to 6/2021
EAD2: 2/2018 to 6/2018

Does anyone know if this will pose a problem?

Should I be returning one of the EAD cards back?

H4 EAD has nothing to do with priority date . it jus needs ur spouses approved i140.

I am on H4 EAD, and it's valid until August 2019.
My spouse is changing his job, and they are going to file his H1B under premium processing (H1B transfer).
Can I file for a new H4 EAD with this premium processing?
I know my EAD doesnt expire until August 2019, but I am wondering if I could still get a new h4 ead with a newer EAd expiry date.
Please help

yes, you can apply all together....and most likely you will receive EAD with new date....
