Hi Indu, My H1B extension was approved recently using premium processing till August 2021. H4 and H4 EAD expired in August 2019. Only H4 extension was applied with H1B extension. H4 EAD extension was not applied together due to company policy. H4 EAD was applied later with copy of H1B receipt only. I am going to start H1B transfer to new company and company lawyer has suggested to apply for H4 and H4 EAD also together as they are requesting H1B until Oct 2022 which is additional 14 months and we have decided to go with that. I am planning to wait for joining new company till both in process H4 and H4 EAD is approved. I have below questions. My spouse wants to be back working on H4 EAD as soon as possible. 1. She can be back to work when H4 EAD currently in process applied separately is approved? 2. Does she has to wait again for H4 EAD approval which will be applied with transfer after I start working for new company. 3. For H4 EAD in process since it was applied with H1B receipt only, do we have to send copy of H1B extension approval now. 4. If we have to send H1B approval copy, will there be an RFE to reply or we have to send it with cover letter?
