美国国土安全局(DHS)今天宣布,完成制定了一项新规定,准许部分持H-1B非移民签
证的H-4依亲配偶申请工作许可证(EAD)。该H-1B签证持有人必须为I-140申請的主要
受益人(primary beneficiary)。USCIS将从2015年5月26日开始接受I-765申请。一旦I-
765获得批准并且该H-4配偶确实收到工卡後,该H-4配偶即可开始在美国境内工作。目
前我们正在等待与新规定相关的更进一步细节,若有更进一步信息,北美联合律师事务
所(WeGreened.com)会持续更新。


The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced today that it has
finalized a rule allows certain H-4 dependent spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants
to apply for Employment Authorization Documents (EADs). The H-1B holder must
be the primary beneficiary of an I-140 petition. USCIS will begin accepting
I-765 applications on May 26, 2015. Once the I-765 is approved and the H-4
holder physically receives the EAD card, the H-4 holder may begin working in
the U.S. We are waiting for further details regarding the new rule and will
update clients as these details become available.

DHS Extends Eligibility for Employment Authorization to Certain H-4
Dependent Spouses of H-1B Nonimmigrants Seeking Employment-Based Lawful
Permanent Residence
Release Date: February 24, 2015
WASHINGTON – U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Le
ón Rodríguez announced today that, effective May 26, 2015, the Department
of Homeland Security (DHS) is extending eligibility for employment
authorization to certain H-4 dependent spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants who are
seeking employment-based lawful permanent resident (LPR) status. DHS
amended the regulations to allow these H-4 dependent spouses to accept
employment in the United States.

Finalizing the H-4 employment eligibility was an important element of the
immigration executive actions President Obama announced in November 2014.
Extending eligibility for employment authorization to certain H-4 dependent
spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants is one of several initiatives underway to
modernize, improve and clarify visa programs to grow the U.S. economy and
create jobs.

“Allowing the spouses of these visa holders to legally work in the United
States makes perfect sense,” Rodríguez said. “It helps U.S. businesses
keep their highly skilled workers by increasing the chances these workers
will choose to stay in this country during the transition from temporary
workers to permanent residents. It also provides more economic stability and
better quality of life for the affected families.”

Eligible individuals include certain H-4 dependent spouses of H-1B
nonimmigrants who:

Are the principal beneficiaries of an approved Form I-140, Immigrant
Petition for Alien Worker; or
Have been granted H-1B status under sections 106(a) and (b) of the American
Competitiveness in the Twenty-first Century Act of 2000 as amended by the
21st Century Department of Justice Appropriations Authorization Act. The Act
permits H-1B nonimmigrants seeking lawful permanent residence to work and
remain in the United States beyond the six-year limit on their H-1B status.
DHS expects this change will reduce the economic burdens and personal
stresses H-1B nonimmigrants and their families may experience during the
transition from nonimmigrant to lawful permanent resident status, and
facilitate their integration into American society. As such, the change
should reduce certain disincentives that currently lead H-1B nonimmigrants
to abandon efforts to remain in the United States while seeking lawful
permanent residence, which will minimize disruptions to U.S. businesses
employing them. The change should also support the U.S. economy because the
contributions H-1B nonimmigrants make to entrepreneurship and science help
promote economic growth and job creation. The rule also will bring U.S.
immigration policies more in line with those laws of other countries that
compete to attract similar highly skilled workers.

Under the rule, eligible H-4 dependent spouses must file Form I-765,
Application for Employment Authorization, with supporting evidence and the
required $380 fee in order to obtain employment authorization and receive a
Form I-766, Employment Authorization Document (EAD). USCIS will begin
accepting applications on May 26, 2015. Once USCIS approves the Form I-765
and the H-4 dependent spouse receives an EAD, he or she may begin working in
the United States.

USCIS estimates the number of individuals eligible to apply for employment
authorization under this rule could be as high as 179,600 in the first year
and 55,000 annually in subsequent years. USCIS reminds those potentially
eligible that this rule is not considered effective until May 26, 2015.
Individuals should not submit an application to USCIS before the effective
date, and should avoid anyone who offers to assist in submitting an
application to USCIS before the effective date.

总计全部 NIW, EB1A 及 EB1B* Approval or Refund(TM)案件的成功率为 98.65%。

*在此公布的 EB1B批准通知的案件数低估了本律师事务所协助处理的实际 EB1B 案件数
。由於,本律师事务所协助准备资料的 EB1B 案件中,许多赞助的雇主请愿人并未递交
G28,所以本律师事务所非这些 EB1B 案件中的立案律师,也因此未收到这类 EB1B 案
件的批准通知,进而无法提供这类案件的正确数量。

於2014年本所接获一起错误判决遭拒的EB1B案件(regular service),在立即重新递交後
随即获得批准。

*此批准率仅包含自始自终委托本事务所办理的案件,并不包含经其他律师事务所办理
及自行 DIY 的 RFE 案件。
