We have the Final H4 EAD rule, but we are still left with many questions.
For the simple case of an H-4 whose spouse has an approved I-140, most questions are answered and everything is fairly simple. For other scenarios, the rule is vague.
Here are a some of the H-4 EAD issues awaiting clarification:
--EAD validity after I-140 withdrawal
--H-4 EAD eligibility after I-140 revocation
--Effect of travel on pending H-4 EAD requests
--Ability to file from outside of the country
--Start date of simultaneously filed I-765s
--Gaps in employment authorization in change of status cases
--The big question - §106(a) duration parameters (discussed in detail here)
--Need for multiple 765 filings when capturing both current and future eligibility?
USCIS has been presented with a lengthy list of H-4 EAD issues for their consideration prior to the publication of H-4 EAD FAQs, anticipated in late April or early May.
