H4 EAD status after H1b transfer


My spouse has h4 EAD and it is valid till Apr 2021, Now, if I transfer my h1b then will her H4 EAD status remain valid?

1- Do we need to transfer h4, h4EAD as well with h1b transfer to keep her EAD status?
2- If h4 and h4 Ead transfer are not needed then will she be able to extend her H4 and EAD when renewal will be due based on h1b transfer without visiting India.

what will be recommended - transfer H4 and H4 EAD with h1 transfer or just transfer h1b and maintain the existing h4 status.

Hi @manoj9k

H4 EAD stays valid after H1B transfer. There is no need to file H4 and H4 EAD with transfer if they have long validity.

You can file H4 extension and H4 EAD separately 6 months before their expiry.
