If I move to a new H1B employer, do I have to also submit a new H-4 and/or EAD application for my spouse?


No, the H-4 EAD is not tied to the H1B spouse’s employer. As long as the principal spouse is still in valid H1B status, the H-4 and EAD generally remain valid through their respective expiration dates. (22.Aug.2016)
