H4 EAD USCIS and DHS H4 EAD mean the same thing. You have to send a postal application to the USCIS lockbox address.

USCIS forwards your H4 EAD application internally to other centers from Dallas or Phoenix themselves. You do not need to worry about it.

    I am applying for my wife’s H4 extensions along with my H1B extension and new H4 EAD. I read the in
    “You may also file Form I-765 at the same time as your Form I-539 and
    your H1-B spouse”. So it is possible to file them together. But It didn’t say to which address I should file all 3 forms together.

    Because for I-129 it can be either California or Vermont, but for I-765/I-539 it says Dallas/Phoneix lockbox.

    So If I file all 3 of them concurrently do I have to send them to California/Vermont? Do we have any official link for this?

  6. anil_am22

    If you are applying all 4 together, then they apl need to be sent to same address as H1B.
