H4 is expiring, H4 EAD is valid for another 2 years. Can I work?

Recommended Posts

My Case is a bit unique. Any valuable suggestion with links will help me here. My H4 will expire by Dec 2021. However my husband has valid h1 till 2023 and since I had applied H4 EAD after h1b approval, my EAD is also valid till 2023. So I’m in a situation where I have valid H4 EAD but H4 is expiring in a month and the extension applied a few months back is still in progress. (Applied in August 2021). Some of the attorneys say I cannot work as H4 is going to expire but others say I can work as H4 EAD is valid and the H4 extension is in progress. Please suggest if you have gone through these scenarios or know what to do here. Also, can I expedite my H4?
