H4 EAD Status after NOIR Denial

My Spouse’s approved H1 Extension got the NOIR in August and submitted response to USCIS in Oct 20. We are waiting for decision on it.

Can you please suggest on my H4 EAD status, will it valid to work in worst case of NOIR denial.

Also please suggest how serious is this NOIR decision…


If H1 is denied, H4 and H4 EAD are cancelled automatically.

NOIR is serious when issued for an approved petition.

However you need to share what NOIR says to help determine the gravity of this.

I am not sure but I think NOIR issued due to short-term project change on approval time and officer visit. It was WFH from project working in 50miles radius of submitted petition. However the response is submitted with project continuity with my employer.
