That is strange that your H4 COS hasn't happened but the EAD card is being processed. Did you check with your lawyer that they have not received any letter of approval of COS? usually they get the letter while the status on USCIS is case received.

Is there any case status change after biometrics or it stayed the same
Posted by unknown22
13 Aug 2019 #29
Mine is H4 Extension not COS (Change of Status)..... I have seen a couple of people getting approved in the same way... Found it in this forum.

No there is no Status Change to Fingerprint.... It directly went to New Card being produced.

13 Aug 2019 #31
H4 Also changed to to Approved

thats really great! after how many days did H4 status changed? Did you receive the EAD card already? or the tracking number?
Posted by unknown22
14 Aug 2019 #33
It took 4 days for H4 to change.

H4EAD card shows -- Card Was Mailed To Me
On August 13, 2019, we mailed your new card for your Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, Receipt Number WAC19191XXXXX, to the address you gave us. If you do not receive your card by August 28, 2019, please go to www.uscis.gov/e-request to request that we send your new card to you.

in how many days generally they send the EAD card? any observations from other cases..?
Posted by unknown22
16 Aug 2019 #36
From the other cases.... I was seeing it is around 5 days ..... But some cases have even reported like 15 days too..but are very few...

In my case i am seeing the tracking number and it should be delivered today evening. My case it took 7 days from the time it changed from New Card Being produced to today.

ok.. Mine says "case approved" since 2 days and no change. Just spoke to USCIS and they said the card has not been dispatched yet but notices are. Did you receive both the notices?
Posted by unknown22
16 Aug 2019 #38
Mine in the same Case Approved for like 4 days.... I think you will be getting in a week from the date approved.

I am not sure of my notices because they directly go the lawyer. From there I get the notices and Card... We are yet to contact my lawyer.

Hey! did Lawyer get the notices and card?
Posted by unknown22
19 Aug 2019 #40
Yes she did and we also got a copy of the approvals... but we are waiting on the card and lawyer has to send us that.

EAD was given till June 2022
