I wish I knew !! My lawyer asks me not to trust the status. Looking it up indicates there is some sort of activity on the file. It has been 3 weeks since the H4 extn went to "Name was updated"

It is really interesting to know that they have a status called  "Name was updated " on the USCIS Case Status web portal .

Anyways - please keep us posted if anything changes.

Thanks

My h4 extension status got updated to 'Case Was Approved'.

It took 2.5 months from Mar 16th for the processing of h4 ext applied along with h1 ext pp.

Just got the H4 and H4 EAD approval. Applied around March 17th and got the approval on June 2nd. So it took around 2 and a half months.

My wife called the processing center on 5/29 (4 days ago) and the guy said it will probably take around 6 months and asked her to wait patiently as they have a mountain load of applications and the apps that came in before her app are still pending. So if anyone got the same stereotypical response over phone, please do not be disheartened. I guess that's just a cookie cutter response.

I my above post, my wife called the center on 5/30 and not 5/29. I remember it was on the first day of the week and forgot 5/29 was a holiday.

Hi All,

My H1-B Extension and H4- Extension for my wife was applied together in Premium on 03/27. My extension was approved on 04/20 and later case was updated on 05/19 that USCIS will refund the premium application fees. I am thinking maybe since it took more than 15 days to approve, they refunded the premium fees. There is no further update on H-4 extension - Last update is of  March 27, 2017, case received. Since they refunded the premium fees, will H4 now be processes under normal/regular queue and would take much longer time for approval. Please suggest

Hi, I am in the same situation. My H1B and my dependent's H4 were filed together in May,2018. Then my company upgraded H1 to premium which got approved last week 09/17. But there is no update for H4 and even in USCIS site the status is showing invalid receipt number. Please let me know what should I do?

Hi, My H1b extension was submitted in July 2018 and approved in May, 2019 after converting into premium but my wife's H4 status still in pending status. H4 was submitted along with h1 in July, 2018.... Any ideas on further steps ? do we need to wait or can we contact someone for enquiry ?

Adding to that, can she travel to India without H4 approval ? what would be the scenarios while she coming back ?

 

Thanks,
