Shareholder Giselle Carson publishes the May Immigration Update. Beginning May 26, 2015, USCIS will begin accepting Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, on behalf of certain H-4 spouses. This will allow spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants who are seeking employment-based lawful permanent residence status to apply for an Employment Authorization Document (EAD). Spouses eligible to apply for an EAD card include spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants who are the beneficiary of an approved I-140 petition or have been granted an H-1B extension(s) beyond the sixth year.
