Hi Team - with current long timeline on H1 extension approvals and with premium H1 cancelled, is there any option where H4 EAD can work through when H1 extension is in-progress? usually H1 extension gets 240 days to continue to work when extension is in progress. Basically, any option for continuation of work for H4 EAD candidates when H1 extension is still going on - Many Thanks
A candidate is either maintaining H-1B status or H-4. While H-1B extension is pending, it is assumed the candidate is on H-1B, not H-4. Accordingly EAD cannot be used.
