My current H4 and H4EAD are expiring in June. I filed an extension in feb and it is still pending.
Received the receipt number but status is still pending.
I do have an AP/EAD valid until 2025 (approved as part of AOS application via my husband’s employer).
- If I do not get H4 and H4EAD approved by June, can I use 485 EAD for my work?
- Can I stay in USA after June, based on my existing H4 pending and AOS Pending applications?
- If i use the 485 EAD does it make my legal status as “AOS applicant” and does it impact my existing H4 application? Can I also the 485 EAD for extending my driving license.
I will also reach out to immigration attorney next week to understand my options and if i have to fly out of USA after my I94 expiry which is in June and get stamping in India and come back. The reason i have posted the questions is so that I can learn the correct rules and also ask right questions to the attorney about my concerns.
I am trying to educate myself on AP/EAD rules and AOS applicant status.
