Can I change job while I-485 is Pending for more than 180 days? Pending H-1B Ext?
My current status:
-On EAD/AP Combo (valid till Feb 2013)
-Also on H1-B (Valid till Feb 2013)
-I-485 Applied December 2011
-Priority Date: October 2008
My Wife: Currently on H-4 (valid till Feb 2013)
Also: My current company has applied for extension of my EAD/AP Combo as well as my H1-B. My current company has also applied for extension of my wife's H-4.
Question: With the situation described above, can I switch jobs now? I have an offer that is way too good to pass and is once is a lifetime opportunity. Can I switch jobs while 1) My I-485 is pending (for more than 180 days) 2) When my EAD/AP as well as H1-B is pending approval and 3) My wife's H-4 is pending approval? I have received receipt for all pending statuses. What should the new company do? Just do AC-21?
did your wife filed I-485?
If she has filed I-485 then you can switch using AC-21 otherwise your new employer has to file your H1B extension... Without I-485 for your wife, she will be out of status and she to go back to her home country..
There are no strangers but friends waiting to be meet.
