CHANGE IN POLICY ALLOWS CERTAIN H-4 DEPENDENT SPOUSES TO FILE FOR WORK AUTHORIZATION 

Effective May 26, 2015 certain H-4 dependent spouses may file for work authorization, reducing the economic burden on H-1B nonimmigrant families struggling to survive on a single income as they work towards permanent resident status. 

Which H-4 Dependents will be eligible for Work Authorization? 

1)      Those with an H-1B spouse who is the beneficiary of an approved I-140

OR

2)      Those with an H-1B spouse who is the beneficiary of a labor certification that was initiated before the start of the H-1B’s sixth year.

With an estimated three-month processing time, H-4 dependents who file on May 26th should expect to receive their employment cards on or before August 26th.  Those who seek to take advantage of this opportunity should prepare now.
