Here is the much awaited guidance on Employment Authorization for Certain H-4 Dependent Spouses

Here is the FAQs: Employment Authorization for Certain H-4 Dependent Spouses

FAQs: Employment Authorization for Certain H-4 Dependent Spouses | USCIS


Please note that you may not apply for employment authorization under this rule until May 26, 2015.

As per USCIS customer service (toll free 800 number), the updated form will be available on May 26. I came to know this from someone.

Default Confirmation regarding I765 form

Thanks to Admin for the Info! Can you also please confirm if form I765 will be released only on May 26th as it is not mentioned on USCIS web page and there is no clarity regarding this.

Draft version of i765 and instructions. No Lock box address information is yet published. Looks like USCIC is taking slow on H-4 EAD.

We also need rule number to be filled in for line 16. Its gonna be a long wait over long weekend

Default Question # 16 from I-765

For H4-EAD fill up 8 CFR 274a.12 (c) (26) on Q. 16. Draft version of I-765 Instruction sheet has this information.

Thanks

Default Please help

Hello All, I am in a wired situation , please provide your expert advise.

I got selected in H1b Lottery this time from employer A and employer A is in different city. To join employer A I need to stay away from my family.

But considering about EAD H4, I applied for a job local in my city and got an offer from employer B. If I get EAD I will join local here with employer B and will be able to stay with my family.

Now my concern is if I continue to work on EAD (H4 EAD) my status will automatically change to H1B on 1st Oct and cannot continue working with current employer B. so have to let employer A know to revoke H1B.

If employer revoke H1B, according to below link about the lawsuit file against EAD H4, there are chances if it goes on hold/or cancelled, USCIS may revoke EAD. if all this happen I left with nothing.

THanks! I just saw the revised form. I believe filing fees is $380. No biometrics required for h4 ead only for dapa. Let me know if I am wrong.

Unhappy EAD after I-140 and Recapturing unused Visa numbers

Hi IV Team,

Thank you very much for your continuous effort.

Could somebody please tell me when the rules such as EAD after I-140 and ReCapturing UnUsed Visa numbers are going to be implemented in near future. Any latest updates on these matters. Looking forward to get rid of all the hectics in consulting companies. Thank you very much again.
