Now that President Biden is in office, will premium processing be made available for H-4 EADs? Or will the regular processing times for H-4 EADs at least be improved?


It is unclear if or when premium processing may be made available for H-4 EADs. It certainly is possible, but there is no word yet from the new administration. As for standard processing times, it is hard to imagine processing times could get much worse than they are now. And we are cautiously optimistic that they may start to slowly improve as the USCIS returns its focus to providing services to foreign nationals, rather than diverting so much of its attention to enforcement efforts.
