How soon EAD can be applied to match primary h1b expiration date?


My husband’s h1b got extended till 2023 (as he switched the job) and so does my h4. But my EAD is till Sep 2022. So how soon can I apply for EAD extension? I’ve heard that I can apply anytime not like 6months before that we usually do at the time of extension. Can you please confirm! Thank you

You cannot file for a renewal EAD more than 180 days before your original EAD expires.

However you can apply for H4/EAD renewal along with H1B extension or change of employer petition any time irrespective of the expiry of current EAD.
