@India1124, ours also H-1B got approved in 7 days but waiting for EAD. H-4 not sure as receipt number not received yet. Did you receive H4 receipt number through attorney or it was mailed to you directly?

have you received H4 case number and EAD case number at the same time or there was a time difference in receiving case numbers in mails ? I have received H4 case number but EAD case number is still not yet received even after 16 days.

@banty: we received only H-4 EAD receipt number and still waiting for H-4 receipt. As per attorney right now there is week or two delay for H-4 and H-4 EAD approval after H-1B.

@chandragk.. Did your online status reflect the tracking number BEFORE you received the EAD card? If so, when?

@chandragk: Did you receive the EAD card yet? Even after "new card being produced". I am stuck with pending H4 & H4EAD. Not sure is it because of the H4EAD case

@raopunit4: Have not received the EAD card, but case status shows approved. I did not receive H-4 receipt number so not sure of its status.

Nebraska is going very slow on H4 and EAD as they are processing premium H1 because of rush. Looks like they are yet to start approving H4/EAD from Feb cases.

Your case gives a hope that Nebraska is processing H4 and EAD cases though very slowly .
