H4 extension and EAD-- are both documents processed together?


If one has a pending H4 extension and EAD how does one factor in “regular” processing times? Would you have to look at say 3 months for H4 extension and then an additional 3 months for EAD for a total of 6 months? Thanks

Generally, both H4 and H4 EAD follow their own processing time.
So, I would suggest to look for H4 processing time separately than H4 EAD processing time.

We are seeing that H4 EAD is processed earlier than H4 these days.

4/15/19 H4 EAD: I got a USCIS case update a few minutes ago - card is being produced!
4/3/19: H4 ext: We received your response to our Request for Evidence for your Form I-539
This was initially done under premium processing (H1 +H4+ H4 EAD)



Anil, thanks for all your valuable suggestions. I hope with the H4EAD card being produced I should expect H4 extension soon. Thanks

ok…so my estimation that H4 EAD are getting approved earlier came out true for your case as well.

Yes, the chances are high that h4 approval is on the way too.
