H-4 dependant spouses may now work under certain circumstances

USCIS began accepting applications for employment authorization from certain H-4 dependent spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants who are seeking employment-based lawful permanent resident status. USCIS published a revised Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization, with an edition date of February 13, 2015, which contains the eligibility category (c)(26) for H-4 dependent spouses. While USCIS will continue to accept previous editions of the form, USCIS indicates that H-4 applicants should use the revised form to prevent delays or RFEs. On Sunday, a federal district court denied a motion for a preliminary injunction to stop DHS from implementing the H-4 final rule.
