    H4 EAD or F1 OPT?

    I had similar situation and I stick with OPT with the thought that H4 EAD can be done anytime if it stays but once you change to H4 from F1 it’s almost not possible to change again. take your decision:)
  2. Hi Guys, I need your expert advice quickly. My Situation is - My spouse is working on OPT EAD at client location and ready to apply for OPT extension (By Aug 2018). My I-140 is approved and company is processing H1B extension in premium. Based on my situation, could you please suggest what should be best choice for me to do at this point of time for my spouse. 1. Continue with OPT and OPT STEM extension. 2. Apply for H4 and H4 EAD for immediate COS. 3. Apply for H4 and H4 EAD for future date (6 month later) and apply for OPT extension with staffing company Company attorney is not suggesting anything. Its completely our decision. STEM OPT has lot of news going on - (Employer location work only). H4 EAD is also going through lot of problems. Please give your opinion on this case as early as possible. I have to decide on this by next week.

  4. Hi, Here is my situation. I am currently on H1B (6th year -expiring on 8th Dec 2018) and my wife is on F1 visa also she has initial OPT EAD(expiring on Sept 9th 2018). She is currently working with staffing company at client location. My PERM is approved on May 1st 2018 and company is preparing to file I-140 in premium. Once my I-140 approves, my company will file for 3 year H1B extension for me. My question is - Can I file H4 and H4 EAD for my wife as a consular processing (future date activation of both) and not to change her status (COS) immediately as she currently has OPT EAD and eligible for OPT STEM extension. In future if something goes wrong with OPT STEM extension, she can be on H4 (COS or consular processing - can go out to home country and get H4 stampped) and she will be having H4 EAD for 3 years which is approved along with my H1B extension. Is this plan doable? or its more complicated than it looks. I will be doing this only if H4 EAD alive after June 2018 and if my company is ready to file my H1B extension in June. We just dont want to loose her OPT EAD and Extension. Can you please help us with this. I know H4 EAD is in question (due June 2018 hearing ) and also there is news floating around OPT STEM - work only at employer location.

  6. Hi Experts, I need one suggestion real quick. I am in USA working on H1B. I am going to get marry in May 2015. Currently my fiancee is working for a company in India. We are planning to file her H1B petition with one employer in April 2015. Now my question is if her petition is get picked in lottery, can we still go for H4 visa stamping in May 2015 after our marriage. If her H1B get approved by May 2015, and we go for H4 stamping will her H4 get rejected. If H4 approved, is her H1 become invalid. Need suggestion real quick as I have to take a decision based on that. Many thanks in advance. NK
