H-4 had questions Hi I wanted to get an idea regarding the filing of H-1b, H-4 and H-4ead together. I am in the process of finding new employment and My wife’s H-4 EAD is set to expire on 31st July. I wanted to know if it is wise to file H-1b, H-4 and H-4 ead in premium processing. From what I understood the “biometric” appointment is when the H-4 application detaches from the H-1b application. My questions are as follows: 1. Can I file H-1b, H-4 and H-4 ead in normal processing and wait till fingerprinting is done and then upgrade the application to premium processing attaching the biometric receipt ? 2. How long does it take to get the biometric appointment after you file the H-1b transfer, H-4 and H-4 had application ?
I have a question regarding my wife H4 - EAD Extension. Brief Summary of the situation : My employment was affected with the recent layoffs in Bay Area and I am in the process of looking for jobs both within my current organization (where I got laid off from) and outside as well. My employment last date is March 31, 2020 and after which I will have 2 more months from USCIS to find a job. My wife’s H4 EAD is eligible for renewal as her EAD card is set to expire on 07/31/2020. My wife recently started working In this condition how does it affect her H4 EAD extension: We are thinking of filling for her H4 EAD Extension this coming week so if we proceed with it and I change my employer and my H1B transfer process starts then what happens to her EAD renewal application? Should we file for her EAD extension now or should we wait for my employment to get settled because that will include H1-B transfer/amendment + fingerprinting for H-4. The goal is to have my work with her new employer without interruption due to processing times. Please let me know your thoughts on this Thank you
