This application is for my wife. Applied it with my H-1B extension in regular processing. Changed it to premium processing after her biometrics was done on June 14th. My attorney suggested that strategy to see if it can expedite her review. I received my H-1b extension approval on June 26th, my wife's application is still pending.

And nobody expected there would be delay in premium processing. We all go to know now that there is no PP for H4 and H4 Ead after the bio metrics was introduced.

any update on your case?

No update.. :(

I see many cases filed in June for standalone EAD being approved already. I guess since mine is with the H4 COS, it is taking a while.

Yeah, June cases are for standalone EAD.

I saw another a May 24 case getting approved, your application is in the same series and I think you should get approval soon. My wife's application also has similar timeline. We filed on May 24 and received on May 28

@alleyus2000 Just got the email notifying new card is being produced for my wife

Great. Congratulations @hs1623! Was your wife's application change of status to H4 + H4 EAD or was she already on H4 and this was a renewal? My receipt number sequence is WAC19208512XX, do you mind telling me your sequence except for the last 2 numbers? Thanks much!

We filed H1 ext + H4 Ext (already on h4) and EAD renewal in pp. 517

Got it. Thanks. Ours was change of status to H4 + H4 EAD so not sure if that is processed on a different timeline than a renewal application.

I think you are in the same situation. There are only 2 scenarios

1. Does H4 need to be processed (i.e. new, renewal or extension, or change from another status to H4) along with EAD?

2. Or only EAD needs to be processed i.e. H4 is already approved. This scenario is getting processed faster.

We did biometrics on June 13th and you guys did a day later. Maybe that's the difference or maybe the adjudicator working on your case is a little slower. Either way, I think you will get approval this week.

Best of luck!
