FAQs: Employment Authorization for Certain H-4 Dependent Spouses | USCIS (http://www.uscis.gov/working-united-states/temporary-workers/faqs-employment-authorization-certain-h-4-dependent-spouses)


Please note that you may not apply for employment authorization under this rule until May 26, 2015. Until the H-4 rule takes effect on May 26, 2015, USCIS will not accept any Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization requesting employment authorization based on your H-4 status. If you submit a Form I-765 before May 26, 2015 USCIS will reject your application and return it and the filing fee to you. You would then need to re-submit the application on or after May 26, 2015.

Is the revised form I-765 out yet? It does not appear so on USCIS link provided. Maybe it does not change. I dont know.

As per USCIS customer service (toll free 800 number), the updated form will be available on May 26. I came to know this from someone.

Thanks to Admin for the Info! Can you also please confirm if form I765 will be released only on May 26th as it is not mentioned on USCIS web page and there is no clarity regarding this.

Draft version of i765 and instructions. No Lock box address information is yet published. Looks like USCIC is taking slow on H-4 EAD.

We also need rule number to be filled in for line 16. Its gonna be a long wait over long weekend :D

For H4-EAD fill up 8 CFR 274a.12 (c) (26) on Q. 16. Draft version of I-765 Instruction sheet has this information.

Thanks

Hello All, I am in a wired situation :confused:, please provide your expert advise.

I got selected in H1b Lottery this time from employer A and employer A is in different city. To join employer A I need to stay away from my family.

But considering about EAD H4, I applied for a job local in my city and got an offer from employer B. If I get EAD I will join local here with employer B and will be able to stay with my family.

Now my concern is if I continue to work on EAD (H4 EAD) my status will automatically change to H1B on 1st Oct and cannot continue working with current employer B. so have to let employer A know to revoke H1B.

If employer revoke H1B, according to below link about the lawsuit file against EAD H4, there are chances if it goes on hold/or cancelled, USCIS may revoke EAD. if all this happen I left with nothing.

THanks! I just saw the revised form. I believe filing fees is $380. No biometrics required for h4 ead only for dapa. Let me know if I am wrong.

Hi IV Team,

Thank you very much for your continuous effort.

Could somebody please tell me when the rules such as EAD after I-140 and ReCapturing UnUsed Visa numbers are going to be implemented in near future. Any latest updates on these matters. Looking forward to get rid of all the hectics in consulting companies. Thank you very much again.
