H1 TO H4 COS + EAD using Spouse H1 and I140 approved for next 2 years


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

This is Naveen living in Nebraska state. I have a quick question regarding "Converting H1 To H4+EAD with Spouse H1B and I140 already approved". I have my H1B valid till September 2017 and my spouse is valid till Dec 2018. I am into consulting business and I would like to convert to H4+EAD filing together using Change of status. When I look at USCIS site below, I am seeing the following information that I need to file at Phoenix location. So my question is for H1 to H4 and EAD, is the process quick (2-3 months) or will it take 6-8 months as mentioned in USCIS site for california and other centers for Change of status applications. USCIS site doesn't say processing time for Phoenix center.




Together with Form I-539 seeking a change to or extension of H-4 status
