H4 EAD renewal now?


Recommended Posts


 I need some help regarding my wife H4 EAD renewal. I work FT and got promoted to  another position recently and my employer is filing for an H1amendment and H1/H4 extension together as my H1B/H4  is expiring in Sep 2017.

Now once the H1/H4 extensions are approved (most likely till 2020) , do we need to apply for H4 EAD again now (although it’s valid till Sep 2017)  or wait till the current one expires ? 
Can she work with her current EAD even after the H4 extension is approved or do we need to file new EAD again now?

Actually my employer didn't agree to file all 3 together. Since the current EAD is valid till Sep 2017, can she continue her Residency on it.

I saw in USCIS  that you can't apply 120 days before EAD expiry .  Also she is planning to go to India in Feb (Assuming that approval comes in 2 weeks as we applied under Premium). So can we apply once she returns back?
