USCIS Acknowledges Delay in NSC Processing of H-4/EAD Applications Filed with Premium Processing H-1Bs

The Nebraska Service Center (NSC) has advised that, due to the high volume of incoming premium processing requests, H-4 I-539 and H-4 I-765 EAD applications that are concurrently filed with premium H-1B petitions before the start of USCIS's premium processing suspension on April 3, 2017, may not be adjudicated concurrently with the Form I-129 and within the prescribed 15 days. If no notice has been received on a riding I-539 or I-765 by the end of April, applicants or their attorneys can contact the National Customer Service Center to place a service request.
