H4 EAD Extension with withdrawn i-140


Recommended Posts


I have an approved I-140 (approved in Feb 2016) with my previous employer. I stayed with them till Apr 2019(more than 180 days after 140 approval) when I changed to a new employer. So my old employer cannot revoke my 140 and I can use it for multiple H1B extensions and port that date.

looks like my employer withdrew my 140 and this is the status/"Petition Withdrawn/Over 180 Days/Not Automatically Revoked"

However, My wife has a H4 EAD till Feb 2021. If we wanted to renew her EAD for additional 3 years, Can the withdrawn petition be used for extending her EAD  or should I have a new 140 from my new employer?


Please let me know.
