    Ron,

    I am on H1B with approved I-140. My current H1 is expiring on 12/23/15. My wife has H4 until the same date. If I apply H4 EAD now, I will be getting H4 EAD until this H1 expiry date, correct?

    My Company starts the H1 and H4 extensions in couple of weeks. Can I apply for H4 EAD once I receive the H4 extension filing receipt (or) Should I wait until the H1/H4 extension gets approved?

    Your wife can file her H4 extension and EAD application concurrently with your H1B extension.

    My employer doesn't do H4 EAD. So I want to go for H1 & H4 extensions together first.

    Can I apply for H4 EAD once I recieve H1/H4 extension filing receipts (or) do I need to wait until H1/H4 approvals to get the EAD for 3 years?
