My husband’s H1B extension is pending, as is my H-4 extension. Do I have to wait for the H1B to be approved before applying for an H-4 EAD?


Assuming you meet all the other requirements for an H-4 EAD, it typically is possible to file the EAD application while the H1B and H-4 extensions are still pending. (26.Aug.2020)
