H4 Pending and can i file H4 EAD now?


Recommended Posts


I am currently working in H4 EAD and which is about to expire in June 2021.

My spouse's H1 is approved already beyond June 2021(As it was a Premium Processing) but my H4 which was filed to Texas Center is still pending. 

However, a week back i got a Mail from USCIS for my H4 Biometrics on May 5th 2021. 

Question : Can i file H4 EAD once i am done with H4 Biometrics along with the Biometrics receipt? Or should i file H4 EAD only for after my H4 is approved?

Does filing before H4 approval help process EAD faster in anyways? As i am working currently i will have lose my job if EAD takes time to process.

Need suggestions and your experiences.
