H4 work authorization


Recommended Posts

Please suggest your finding that goverment is proposing:


  • Provide work authorization for spouses of certain H-1B holders.

This proposed change to the current DHS regulation would allow certain spouses of H-1B visa holders to legally work while their visa holder spouse waits for his or her adjustment of status application to be adjudicated. Specifically, employment will be authorized for H-4 dependent spouses of principal H-1B visa holders who have begun the process of seeking lawful permanent resident status through employment after meeting a minimum period of H-1B status in the U.S. This effort will help retain talented professionals who are valued by U.S. employers and who seek to contribute to our economy.

Sure it may be easier to implement.

But nobody knows if it is going to get implemented at all.

You just have to wait and see. No way around that.

And discussing some stuff that may or may not become reality is rather futile.

Don't get your hopes up.

If there is a final rule, then you have a point with discussing it.
