I have filed my 485 and waiting for EAD & AP. My question is if I use AP to travel, does it means that I am abandoning H1B status?
I have seen all combination of answers for this question.
But most common answer from those who have already done that is
You are a parolee the moment you enter using AP. But you can continue using H1 again by working for the same employer. There was a case to where Husband entered using AP and wife on H4 at the same time. People also renewed/transferred H1s after this.
But the best person to answer your question is your attorney. Mine told me to go and get stamped again while coming back, which I am going to ignore and coming back on AP and continue using H1.
