H4 EAD with approved i797 from another employer (not joined)

I’m working for an IT company in NJ on valid H1B for last 9 years & I have an approved i-140. My current H1B with my current company is valid till April’2019.
I got an offer from another consulting company (Emp B) last year with which my H1B was approved & valid till April’2021.
Now question is can I get my wife’s H4 EAD renewed based on my H1b approval from Employer B (which I got till April '2021) even though I didn’t join them.

can you please advice if its okay to get H4 EAD renewed with valid H1 petition from Employer whom I didn’t joined.

Awaiting your response & appreciate quick response!



You dont own a H1, your employer only owns it. You are just a beneficiary. Having said that, when you dont work for a H1 employer, its not a valid status for you. Thus, its not going to be a valid base for your spouse H4 visa…
