Hello Tobikaje,

DO u have any update on your applications? If already approved, how many yrs your H1, H4, H4 EAD approved for, and how long it took for you to receive the EAD card.

Yes, attorney confirmed that all three of my petitions are approved. EAD is approved for 3 years (Total processing time is 8 days). I don't know how long the H1 has been approved for. I will update that information after I receive the H1 extension documents.

Only the status of EAD has been updated to "New card has been mailed" in USCIS website. H1 and H4 status still shows as "Application received". If you are waiting for approval, check with your attorney. USCIS might have sent the update directly to the attorney without updating the website.

@Tobikaje: congratulations. Today 3rd may 2018, my ead status changed as New card is being produced, but no update on H1B and H4 Extensions. Still they shows as on 23rd april we received your case both all 3 applications are sent together but only ead status changed

I was in a similar situation just a few days ago.

If your EAD says "New card production ordered" then it means your H1 ext and and H4 ext is approved as well. You will soon receive a courtesy notice confirming the approval of your H4 EAD. You will find that H1 ext is also approved for the same period as H4 EAD + 10-15 days. Congratulations on the approval!!

I already got the extension documents but the status in USCIS website has not changed for H1 ext and H4 ext.
