Key Facts About
H4 Dependent Visa
  • H4 visa holders can only volunteer with nonprofit organizations that do not offer monetary benefits. These positions must be unpaid. If you accept a paid opportunity, it will be considered illegal. Typically, H4 visa holders volunteer with religious and social organizations.
  • The H4 visa does not allow you to run a business from your office or home because you can not receive any salary. However, according to the new regulatory changes, effective May 26, 2015, eligible H4 candidates can file the form I-765 to receive an authorization to work and receive a monetary benefit in the United States. However, whether you receive the EAD or not, you are able to study in the US in any field.

You Need to Know about
H4 DEPENDENT VISA

IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR AN H-4 VISA, you must carefully fill the Form I-765 by submitting supporting evidence and pay a fee of $380.

AFTER RECEIVING THE EAD, you need to file the I-140 petition for approval or the principal H1-B holder would have to have lived in the U.S. for over six years on H1B status.

Alice is the best immigration lawyer I know. She managed my case very well and she kept me updated on my status all the time, that showed that in her office work only professional and skilled people. Alice and her team was constantly calling immigration to see if the case is moving as it should without any issues. I highly recommend others using this lawyer for their immigration needs.
