Can I utilize old biometric that was part of a denied GC application for H4 extension now

Hi Anil,

I have applied for H4 extension along with spouse H1on May 22nd. Spouse H1 is approved. H4 receipt is received and the status is waiting to send the biometric appointment.

We had a GC application that got denied 3 years back. I had got GC EAD and an A-number during that time.A biometric was also taken for that. I didn’t include the A-number in my I-539 as I am not sure if that A-number is still valid. I called the helpline number but they were also not able to tell me if my A- number is still valid or not. Please let me know if there any way I can utilize that biometric for my current H4 extension

I have applied for my EAD with spouse H1 receipt and approval. My current EAD is already expired and on unpaid leave now. Hoping it will be processed faster if I can reuse the old biometric


It is not your choice.

USCIS will decide if they will reuse the briometric or not.
