hello, is this a standalone H4EAD application or a bundled application with other items? Congratulations.

Hi Did you specify any future date.

Yes I did specify a future date, but I am not sure whether USCIS honored it or not. I will update you once we receive the EAD card and H4

Please let us know what future date you requested and if it was honored

Yes the future effective date we had given as 15th Dec 2016, yes it was honored for both H4 and EAD. we just received the copy of the approval notice for both which had the future effective dates on both. yet to receive the original approval notices and the EAD. Hopefully it will arrive soon :)

Yes exactly. you are right. so if we decide to give a future effective date, we can take advantage of having no employment gap.

Hi All,
Can anybody please tell me whats the process to reach congressman and how to put the case of H4 EAD, as my application is around 100 days old. I havent received any proper response from USCIS and raised 2-3 SR's without any luck.

It usually takes 2-3 weeks to get the card
Anyways, you can find the congressman here - http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/ and call them and ask to be connected to the immigration department and they will help you from there
