NO deadline after May 26, 2015 to apply for your H4 EAD.
Contrary to some rumors, May 26, 2015 is not a deadline to apply for an H4 EAD. It is only the date when eligible H4 visa holders can actually apply for a work permit. It is definitely not like the H1B April 1 quota where there are a limited number of applications allocated and therefore there is no lottery for H4 visa holders work authorization applications. So far, as the law stands, H4 visa holders who qualify and want to apply for a work permit have to start applying on May 26, 2015 not stop applying on a deadline of May 26, 2015. As per our knowledge, nothing has indicated a quota on the H4 EAD applications. This means as long as the law is not changed or revoked, people who are on H4 visa and qualify for the H4 work authorization should be eligible to apply even after May 26, 2015. Therefore, do not get into a frenzy of applying without preparing a good application.
