My husband’s H1B extension was filed for premium processing and my H-4 extension was included with his filing. His H1B was approved within a couple of weeks, but my case is still pending. Is this normal?


This is not common, but it does happen occasionally. The USCIS typically will adjudicate the accompanying H-4 application quickly when the H1B petition is filed for premium processing, but this is done as a courtesy and is not required. (24.Sep.2018)
