Mine is pending H4+EAD.They have given me normal RFE stating H4 must be approved before filing EAD. So we need to wait for dates if you file H4+EAD. Standalone EAD is fast one and SR will work in that case.

No update yet.. feel like after they started premium processing these cases are getting delayed.

I have a friend who applied for his wife's H4 and H4EAD concurrently like me, the receipt date was around May 30, got an RFE ending of September to send last 6 paychecks of primary h1 holder. for your info guys..

No - I raised 3rd SR yesterday. Spoke to immigration officer - he said they will first process i-539 and i-765. Frustrating!!!

No, the H4 case stills says 'Case is Received', hoping they will update this.

@h4andh4ead - no addiotional steps taken. Raised 2 SRs so far, that last one was 10 days ago.

@Smart2020 Hi I filed COS+H4 EAD in late June, similar response to my SR saying COS needs to be approved first.

Do you think concurrent filing may take 130+days? It's so frustrating waiting everyday.

Best wishes to everyone still waiting!
