Congratulaitons on the approval.

1) Was this a stand alone EAD renewal OR you filed H4 extension + EAD renewal concurrently with with H1 extenstion in premium processing?

2) When was H1 extension approved?

Trying to determine if NSC started focusing on H4 extension & EAD renewals.

I had applied for H-1, H-4 and EAD via premium on 03/09 to Nebraska Service Center. Received date and notice date on all the applications was 03/10. H-1 was approved on 03/22. EAD got approved on 05/18, and H-4 got approved on 05/19. So, H-4 and EAD petitions took about 70-71 days to approve.

I think NSC is starting to process concurrently filed H -4 and EAD petitions in March. Last time I called them, they had mentioned to me that, for concurrent filed petitions, both H-4 and EAD petitions would be adjudicated in 75 days. So, you may want to call them to raise an SR on the 76th day, if your petitions still don't get processed by then. Good Luck.

Happy to help. Just in case if you end up calling on the 76th day to raise an SR, raise it on your EAD petition (and not H-4). Because when they process your EAD petition, they would be adjudicating your H-4 as well (along with with the EAD).
