Need opinion on H1B Amendment +H4(COS)+ H4 EAD together

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm currently on F1 visa which is expiring in a month. I'm planning to change my status to H4.

Can I apply my H4 and H4 EAD along with my spouse's H1B amendment in Premium? as my spouse's title and salary changed.

Processing times for COS and H4 are nearly 6 to 8  months. So, we are looking for options.

Please suggest the best option.


Help is appreciated.


Thank you.

There is a new requirement of biometrics for i-539 forms i.e change of status or extension of status form. So h4 ead and h4 COS will likely be delayed due to biometrics requirement while H1b is approved in premium. 

One strategy your employer can try is to file everything in regular. Wait for biometrics to get done and then upgrade the h1b application in premium. This may or may not work as we don't have enough data at this time.
