I filed my H-4 EAD extension a few months ago, but the application is still pending. When my current H-4 EAD expires, can I keep working while my extension is pending?


Unfortunately, no. Unlike certain other types of EADs, an H-4 EAD is not automatically extended upon filing. Approval is required to work lawfully, once the older EAD expires. (23.Jul.2018)
