My wife has approved H4 extension notice (i-797) and we just filed her first ever H4 EAD last week. She need to travel to India for medical reasons and she will need to have H4 visa stamped in order to immigrate to the US.
Our concern is, will it affect her i-765 application as she will receive a new i-94 and H4 Visa which will differ from already filed i-765?
In that case, does she have to wait out in India till her H4-EAD is processed in order to avoid i-94 mismatch?
Appreciate your help!
