  • H4 EAD - status during extension

    Hello Shah - I am Amol. Here is my situation.

    My husband has approved I140 (PD is Sep 2010). His H1 expires on Sep 30 2015. I am in state of confusion whether to apply my EAD on may 26th or not.
    With my research in other forums, I came to understand that the validity of H4 EAD will be expired when my Husband's H1 expires (which is 2015 Sep).

    I want to understand if my husband applies for his extension in Aug 2015, even though the result might take 3 months, he will be eligible to work with receipt number. Is that the same case with H4 EAD too? if I have the receipt of my H4 extension, would my EAD be valid until we get the approved H1/H4?

    Or Will it be a good idea for my Husband to apply for extension in April and then file H4 EAD after we get the extension?

    What would you suggest, I am confused, please provide me guidance.

    Your inputs are highly appreciated.

    Thank you!

    File your husband extension and file your H4 extension then based on that you file your EAD. Or just wait for his approval then concurrently file for the H4 extension with your EAD. Let us know if you need help, please call 510 742 5887
