Employment Authorization Documents (EAD) for H4 visa holders
USCIS will begin accepting applications for EADs from eligible H4 visa holders today. As part of the Executive Action in November, President Obama announced that certain H4 visa holders would be eligible to apply for Employment Authorization. In order to be able to file, the H1B spouse must either have an approved I-140 petition or the H1B spouse had his/her H1B extended beyond 6 years based on AC21. Please contact us if you would like to determine if you are eligible for the H4 EAD.
