    H4 EAD

    Oh I see. Make sense as they may not issue two EADs, not necessarily is the immigration law though. Nothing fishy about I 140 or I 485 but as you know nothing is guaranteed so why to surrender valid H1/H4 while waiting for 485 approval. Thats the argument from my husbands immigration attorney.

    H4 EAD

    Dear forum members, I am on H4 status. My spouse has valid I 140. We both have EAD/AP based on pending I 485. We are traveling to home country and we are planning to re enter on H1/H4 status by going through the stamping process. Our attorney recommended to use current EAD/AP, only when we have no other choice. I want to start working, so can I apply for H4 EAD when I go for the visa stamping in my home country? I mean is it possible to apply for H4 EAD via consular processing? Thanks

    H1/H4 visa stamping - Drop box

    Additional question: According to your post, I am NOT eligible for drop box since I have changed my status to H4. Can I go for stamping alone before my husband can drop his application in the drop box since I am traveling a month ahead of my husband's planned travel? In other words, do my husband has to have valid visa stamp in his passport before I can go for my own H4 stamping? Thank you.

    H1/H4 visa stamping - Drop box

    Thank you.
  6. Dear friends, We are in our seventh year of H1b/H4 based on approved I 140, already received EAD/AP combo, awaiting I 485. Current H1b/H4 approval valid till 09/2019. Traveling to home country, India soon. Questions we have: 1. Are we eligible for stamping by drop box? My husband has just changed employment in July 2016 and we have new H1/H4 approval based on new employment. Previous H1b visa stamping was for previous employer expired in June 2016. 2. I have H1b stamp in my passport (till 03/2017) but later changed status to H4 and I do not have H4 visa stamp in my passport. Am I eligible for drop box for H4 stamping? 3. Recently there was a significant hike in the H1 visa fees to $4500. Does it apply to us as individual applicant when we go for the stamping? To my understanding it is the extra fees to be paid my employer only. Thank you.

    H1b transfer or new H1b?

    thanks jairichi, I have already used 7.5 years of H1b but I have approved I 140 from company A. Will my new H1b from company A be considered cap? Company A told me that my H1b will be cap exempt as long as I am not more than three years out from previous H1b status. Please clarify. Thanks.

    H1b transfer or new H1b?

    Dear friends, I am in a situation and I need your valuable input. I worked for company A for about 5 years and then joined company B and worked for about one year. Last month, I applied for H4 and got the receipt number. H4 is still under process and I have stopped working for company B since july 31, 2015, the date of H4 receipt. Company B has NOT cancelled H1b. Now I want to join company A again. I have valid H1b stamp in the passport for company B till March 2017. what are my options here? 1. Can I apply for new H1b for company A pending H4 petition? or I have to wait till h4 gets approved and then apply for H1b 2. If my new H1b for company A gets approved then what will be my status between July 31 till new H1b approval since I am not working? 3. Can I simply transfer H1b from company B to company A? or I have to apply for new H1b? Thank you. 2.

    part time H1 to H4

    Hi, Last month, I decided to switch from full time H1b to part time H1b due to family situation. Compnay attorney has already applied for the amendment but it is still under process with USCIS. Now I want to change my status to H4 and I no longer wish to work. Can I change my status to H4 eventhough my current part time H1 amendment is still NOT approved? Thank you all.
  13. thanks livliv, "poor" husband is depending on me to have his GC. He used up his three years of H1b doing IM residency and then he is going to use up his remaining three years in doing card fellowship. His program does not support for GC while in training. he is applying for NIW, though. That is why it is important for both of us NOT to mess up with already approved I 140 for me from company A. I have my own reasons not to work, mainly small kid. But in the mean time, I just accepted part time offer from company B on H1b. Hopefully, I 140 EAD will implement soon.
  14. Jairichi, Thank you very much for providing your input.
  15. I am just posting a new question here as the question is related to the previous thread. My current company B wants to keep me and not happy with my decision to go on H4. They have given me an option of working part time, say for example 3 days/week or 5 half days a week (around 24 to 25 hours in total). Can I work part time being on H1b? Is there any minimum hours/week or days/week that I need to work in order to legally maintain my H1b status? Thank you all. Please answer this question.
