H4 EAD RFE - Question regarding continuing my employment

Recommended Posts

I have a H4 EAD valid till 14th Feb,2019 from my spouse's Employer A. My spouse decided to switch jobs and received a H1B transfer approval and H4 extension till 2021 from Employer B. My spouse did not join Employer B for XYZ reason, the petition was withdrawn by B and he continued with Employer A. 

Now Employer A filed extension for H1 and H4. H1 is now approved but H4 extension got an RFE as I already have a valid visa till 2021 from Employer B.

Now the question is since Employer B withdrew his H1 petition is my H4 visa still valid? If not, my current visa expires on Feb 14th, 2019 so should I stop working till USCIS responds to the RFE?

Your advice will be greatly appreciated.

You can continue to work until Feb 14th, but need to stop working after that date.

An H4 is never tied to an employer. For the H4 it only matters that the H1 is valid.

Did you receive H4 EAD with employer B?

If so, what is the expiry date of EAD
