H4 EAD Validity - Issued from diff. employer while H1 extension is being processed from current employer

Recommended Posts


Need advice on validity of H4 EAD for my spouse. 

Currently, she has got H4 EAD card with approval till 2021. However, this was applied through another employer(H1+H4+H4 EAD filed together) , which I did not join. 
Since I stayed on with my current employer and  H1/H4/H4EAD was only valid till this year end (12/31/2019) with them, both H1 and H4 extension/Amendment was filed last month based on i140. We did not file for H4 EAD with current employer.

Can my spouse  work on EAD received from other employer (valid till 2021), while H1 and H4 is under process through existing employer. After 12/31/19, we would be under 240 days rule while waiting for decision and would it be appropriate to use this H4 EAD from other company during this time?

Please share your opinion.

I think you will need an approved h4 to use the EAD. If h4 is approved till 12/31 and if its pending after that she can't use the EAD after 12/31.
