H4 i-539 - Are you an applicant for an immigrant visa?

Hi can someone help me with a few queries on filing the i-539 form please.

My spouse is on an H1B and has an approved i-140, I am applying for an H4 and EAD extension currently. What should I answer to the below mentioned questions from the form i-539?

Part 4. Additional Information About the Applicant (continued)
3. Are you, or any other person included on the application, an applicant for an immigrant visa?
Yes or No

4. Has an immigrant petition EVER been filed for you or for any other person included in this application?
Yes or No

Please help me with the answers to the above mentioned questions.

The Immigrat petition has only been filed for primary H1B if i140 has been filed.

So, for H4 and H4 EAD, you should answer β€˜No’ for immigration petition ever filed question.

You can use the sample H4 extension i539 form and sample H4 EAD i765 form here.

Hi Anil, thanks a lot for your reply.

So your saying that the answer should be NO for both Question 3 and 4?

Also can you please reply to my other question mentioned on a different topic thread PLEASE

Have you checked the sample i539 that i shared? It has all the details.

Also, I have clearly answered that H4 does not have any immigration petition filed. So, the answer has to be β€˜No’ whenever you are filing any application for H4 applicant.

Yes I went through that after I replied to you, thanks for the help Anil!
