SHOULD I WAIT FOR MY I-539/H4 APPROVAL BEFORE APPLYING FOR MY I-765/EAD?

         Question:

Hi Pallavi,

How are you? I filed the I-539 application online on 3/27/2021. I also want to file the I-765 form for H4-EAD. While reading instructions for I-765, I came to know that I could have paper file both ( I-539 & I-765) together. What is the best course of action for me so that I do not loose time?

1. Should I continue with just filing I-765 separately? or

2. Should I withdraw my current I-539 application (have receipt notice) and file I-539 & I-765 together?

What is your suggestion for me?

Answer: 

Use the receipt notice from the I-539 AND prove the case on being a pending I 539. So all the documents showing the relationship and then USCIS should be able to match the two up. Warning to you about delays with these. Better to get the H4 stamped and re-enter the country and then file the EAD.
