This is related to my query on doing F1 COS to H4 + H4 EAD concurrent filing as part my spouse H1B visa processing. I am currently in F1 visa (H4 to F1COS done during 2018) working in STEM OPT and my F1 visa will get expire in July 2021. Hence I am planning to file my F1 COS to H4 + H4 EAD concurrent filing for future date (July 2021) along with spouse H1B visa extension petition. I am having the following queries regarding this
Can we file H1B Extension + F1 COS to H4 + H4 EAD concurrently in premium processing?
Can we file H1B Extension + F1 COS to H4 + H4 EAD in normal processing, wait for Biometric to get completed for COS and then upgrade to Premium processing?
Also, can we file H4 + H4 EAD for future date. How much time does USCIS takes to honor the request?
I just want to hear your responses and best approach to proceed as I don’t want any gap in my employment? Could you please provide your guidance?
Any responses will be greatly appreciated.
