H1B and H4 extension on the basis of I140 filed in normal processing. Acknowledgement /Receipt number from USCIS is awaited. Once received, I will apply for H4-EAD renewal for my spouse from my end.
My question is if my H1B extension gets approved in future, since I will be filing H4-EAD renewal separately, how long after H1B extension approval, usually H4EAD renewal case gets approved?
My 2nd question is since it is almost certain my spouse will lose her job after my current H1B expires as H4EAD renewal will not be approved by then, is it okay for her to travel outside US while her H4 extension and H4-EAD renewal is still in processing? I understand she wont be able to enter back in US until her H4 extension gets approved but trying to understand if it will have any negative inpact on the ongoing processing of H4 extension.
