    07/07/2011: Interesting USCIS Idea Looming up on the Horizon to Make a Rule to Allow EAD to H-4 Spouses of H-1B Professionals Working Under AC 21 Sections 104(c) or 106(a)

    The USCIS is considering to initiate a proposed rule next March 2012 to extend the availability of EAD to H-4 dependent spouses of principal H-1B nonimmigrants who have begun the process of seeking lawful permanent resident (LPR) status through employment and have extended their authorized period of admission or "stay" in the U.S. under section 104(c) or 106(a) of AC 21 (Public Law 106-313). Apparently this concept is conceived to allow the eligible class of H-4 dependent spouses to work and thereby encourage professionals with high demand skills to remain in the country and help spur the innovation and growth of U.S. companies, and thus allow the United States to remain a world leader in high technology. Very stimulating idea! This may be perceived as an administrative fix of the broken employment-based immigration system. It will certainly help to stop ongoing reverse exodus of these talented foreign professionals, particularly from California, to their home countries. We will watch how far and how fast this concept will move ahead. Please stay tuned to this website for development of this news.

    Good news.I think this is for the spouses of H1b professionals who have applied for the green card already and not for each and every H4 visa holders.

    Can someone clarify this please?

    OP,Its for professional who are on the way to permanent residence.Not to all h4's.The post can be misleading if this is not mentioned.Not to offend but it may bring mixed response.But the intention to bring it to notice is good .If they give work permits to all h4s when just applying green card that itself is a great relief.
