The H4 EAD's future.

In the recent months there has been an influx of applications of H4 EAD reaching the USCIS. We have seen the dream of thousands come true with approval notices after approval notices.  It give us immense pride to see the culmination of long years of fight.  The question everybody is asking is what happens next?  We wanted to cover few of the issues that might be facing the H4 visa holders, their EADs and what we can expect in the future.

We Expect More Applications in the coming month.

Many are those who preferred to wait and see how the situation with the H4 work permits unfolds before applying.  We have seen hundreds of H4 visa holders waiting for the right moment to apply. Now they are flocking in for their applications.  We think that there will be another wave of applications in around August 2015.  If you are one of them and you need help, do not hesitate to call us at 510 742 5887.

Save Jobs USA lawsuit is not finished.

The lawsuit against H4 visa EADs is not completed yet. We hope it will not result in a reversal of the law.  We have just to wait on see on this. This is one reason, it might be good to file for the EADs as soon as you can.

The I-140 EAD coming soon.

The I-140 EAD is the next new wave which we are expecting around end of 2015 or by April 2016. Unless it is blocked, it will be the next good thing coming from the USCIS.

The above is just a quick analysis of what we have seen and we can expect on the Employment Authorization Document (EAD) arena. At no point it reflect the general reality.  It is only what our law firm has witnessed in the past few months. Keep checking our website www.h4toead.com  for updates and new information. Should you need help on any H4 application or EAD, feel free to call us at 510 742 5887.

Great Testimonial on the H4 EAD!

Here is a testimonial from one of our clients:

"I have been an avid listener of radio talk shows hosted by Attorney Shah as I found them very informative. Through these shows, I found out about the quest for H4 EAD and signed petition for the same. I also used to send my questions to Attorney Shah over emails and always got the response even though there was no client-attorney relationship at that point. Now that this law is a reality now, there was no better option for me other than Attorney Shah who has been in the thick of this crusade to apply for my Wife's H4 EAD. the whole process of application has been very smooth and easy. Able office assistants from Attorney Shah's office patiently helped me out while I worked on collecting the documents. During this process, I have mailed numerous times to Attorney Shah with my questions and he would always make it a point to respond back to my questions promptly. I am still waiting for the EAD approval, however wanted to write this review to express my gratitude for Attorney Shah who has been doing this amazing work. "

Shah Peerally Law Show - July 17, 2015 - H4 EAD issues

Free Music - Audio Hosting - Shah Peerally Law Show July ...

H4 Change of Status being approved within 90 days and H4 EAD within 4 weeks!

Lately a lot people are asking about the processing time for H4 Change of Status (H4 COS) and H4 EAD processing time. Based on the amount of cases we have handled so far, the average turn around of the cases from our office for 1) H4 COS is around 2.5 months  and 2) another 2 to 4 weeks for the EAD.  We have heard that many are experiencing longer delays.  The truth is that the delays might be the result of wrongfully submitted applications or the person who filed has no experience in filing either the H4 COS or the H4 EAD.  We highly recommend seeking the right professional help to handle such cases. The Shah Peerally Law Group PC has now handled many of such cases and our success rate is amazing so far. We recommend calling us at 510 742 5887 or email info@peerallylaw.com for any inquiry.

The August 2015 Visa Bulletin is out and nothing really great for India! The Philippines doing better on EB3

Except the Philippines which was unavailable, is now on June 2004 EB3, the August 2015 Visa Bulletin is not promising for Indian nationals.  In fact, we might see a retrogression in September 2015 for India. However, we might also see a move towards a progression.  Hopefully, we will see a good progression to at least September 2009 according to our previous predictions but the stagnant situation since June to August 2015, is not a good sign.  We encourage people to look into other alternatives. Good luck to all!

    Do you I have to file anything if I want to change job on H4 EAD?

    The H4 EAD unlike the H1B visa does not require any kind of transfer or filing in order to move from jobs to jobs. In fact, you can be working at different places simultaneously and better not even in your field of study.  However the since the H4 is attached to the H1B visa, you need to make sure that a form I-539 change of status is filed every time you transfer the H1B.  At this point, USCIS has not mentioned to refile the H4 EAD application every time you move the H1B visa.  If you need help filing the H4 EAD or H4 Change of Status.

    Important note: Many are contacting us stating they self filed the H4 EAD and they have not even received any answer.  This is exactly the problem of dealing with such new cases without knowing the law. It is wise to use an attorney to help. Our law firm has already received many approval of H4 EAD and we will be glad to help you. Call us at 510 742 5887

    The American Immigration Council, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project (NWIRP), Gibbs Houston Pauw, Scott D.

    Another Xenophobic attack on H4 Visa Holders and the New H4 EAD rule.

    It seems that many are going on a lengthy way to attack not only the H4 EADs but also an entire group of people.  While the arguments might be holding water, the fact that some can even dare to write such a book is reprehensible.

    A new book reported by ComputerWorld India denounces an alleged monopoly by South Indians regarding the IT sector.  Although I have not read the book, and although we all know there are few abuses on employment visas, I cannot imagine that an entire race needs to be blamed based on few situations.  It is exactly what Donald Trump is doing to the Latinos and Mexicans (See Donald Trump v/s Mexicans)

    The book "The Rise of South Indians: Invisible Dimension in Decline of Jobs for Americans in US Economy” says that to fix the broken US IT job market, the monopoly of Teluguites and Tamilians must be ended.

    The immigration system has its flaws but so far, the Silicon Valley has prospered based on this system.  Now blaming the "success" on abuses is not only wrong but ridiculous.  We would like all of you to be aware that many anti-immigration groups are just racists and xenophobic.  They will even use people of the same community to create division between groups. None of us should subscribe to this kind of intimidation.

    DHS could not stop the Save Jobs USA lawsuit on H4 EAD.

    It seems the government was against the H4 new rule. According to Law360, the government failed to "Nix" the lawsuit at an early stage. Despite the fact that the Judge did not agree on the preliminary injunction, she still allowed the law suit to continue.  As such we are going to see a huge influx of evidence and information coming on the lawsuit. At this point the H4 EAD rule is still good but we do not know what is its future. For those who qualify at this point, we recommend you file your EAD at an early stage and enjoy the benefits. If you need help to apply, please call us at 510 742 5887.

    Can I use a previously approved I-140 for the H4 EAD?

    If you have an approved I-140, whether it is from the present company you are working with, or an not revoked approved form I-140 from any previous company, you can actually use it to file for your spouse H4 work authorization (H4 EAD).  The rule follows the same rule of AC 21, for H1B extension where the H1B holders can extend and transfer their H1B beyond six years with an approved I-140.  The approval does not have to be in any specific EB category.  If you need help or are confused with the H4 EAD rule, feel free to call us at 510 742 5887 for help.
