H4 EAD Application under Processing : Lost employment & Accepted New offer in EAD Posted August 28, 2018 · Report reply Hello All, Here is a very confusing Situation & it will be great if someone can provide the right inputs. 1) I am on H1-B & my wife is on H4. i have my I-140 approved in the year 2012 and applied for H4-EAD in the month of May-2018 which is still under processing. 2) Lost my job in the end of July-2018 and accepted an offer in the mid of this august-2018. New petition is one the way and filing is under process. The question is what happens to the H4-EAD which shows still under processing ? should i file once again once with my new H1-Petition approves ?
