    Fastest way to move from F1 to H4/H4-EAD

    I am currently working on F1 STEM OPT extension which is expiring on 5th June, 2019 and my husband is on H1-B with an approved I-140 for green card. My H1-B was filed this year in premium but I havenít heard if my application was picked in the lottery. If my application is not picked in the lottery this year, I will have to move to H4 and H4-EAD to continue working in the US. So, in my case, what will be the best and the fastest way to get converted to H4 and obtain a H4-EAD. I know I can file both together and go on a leave of absence at my job till I receive my EAD. And the estimated timeline for this might be 5-6 months. So is there any better way to move to H4 and H4-EAD with the least period of absence from my work. I was suggested to just re-enter US with a fresh H4 and then apply for EAD once I am in the country. But I donít know if this will be faster and if it will work. Please advice. Thanks in advance.

    It would be nice if someone has any answer to this. I am interested too.
