    Hi
    Need guidance. I am currently on H1B and filed my H1extension in august under regular processing and it is still pending status.
    I am also eligible for H4/H4EAD and want to file a COS application. If I file a new H4/H4EAD application, It will take 4-6 months now from what I am reading.

    If I upgrade my H1 application to Premium, Can I attach H4/H4EAD application for me along with it?
    There are many cases online where people filed for their H1 Extension and attached H4/H4EAD for their spouse getting a decision together. Not sure thosugh if I can do it for myself. That way I might br able to get H4EAD much quicker which I need now as my H1B might be revoked soon.

    Thanks in advance
    Sidhu"

    Not possible. Premium processing is not available for H4. You cannot be a H4 for your own H1.

    Hi Sean
    I will be applying for h4 based on my wifes H1, not my H1. I have my own H1 extension going on but i am looking to file a COS.
    There are many cases online where people are attaching the H4/H4EAD application of their spouse to their own Premium H1 extension application. USCIS in most cases is accepting them as a single application thus making a decision on H4/H4EAD in 14 days. Its not premium individually for H4 applciation but if you attatch it to your spouses premium H1 application, it gets considered as 1 case
    My question is can i file a COS to H4/H4EAD application for myself along with upgrading my H1 extension to premium?

    Thanks
