H1 to H4 and H4-EAD

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

I am planning to convert to H4 and H4-EAD to continue working,I am on my H1-B 7th year now but my I-140 received query and its complicated so my option to continue working is H4-EAD.My H1B currently is Valid till Jan 2017

1)Can I apply both H4 and H4-EAd at the same time...I know its an YES so then
Can i put Effective dates to start for both (H4 and H4-EAD) 6 months from now or are there any number of day limits?

2)If i don't have H4 Stamping and my H4 gets approved before my H4-EAD,Can i go to INDIA when H4-EAD is in process?

3) what are the possibilities of both getting approved together H4 and H4-EAD with less gap in employment?

4)How can i make sure so that i get less gap in employment as i am Full time.

Thanks in Advance for all your replies and suggestions.

The EAD will only be processed once you are in H4 status. So there will be a gap (up to 90 days) during which you can not work.
