EAD vs h1b --- urgent !
I have received my EAD in oct 07 and my AP last month, with my spouse being primary applicant. Currently I am on h1b, however, I have a better offer at hand thro another employer who does not sponsor h1b. I was searching for posts on comparing h1b vs ead..but could not locate one.
Could someone enlighten me on this issue as to what wld be common issues that are raised if one switches to ead (other than the possibility of being out of status). I am presuming that if my spouse stays on h1b I can switch to h4 status if required?
Please advice..I need to make a decision this weekend!!

You can work on W2 or 1099 using your EAD, but make sure don't go out of status. As I understand you have H1 and your wife is principal applicant for the GC. you can start using EAD immediately and file your paper to transfer from H1 to H4. By doing this, you will not be out of status and you can work with multiple employers if you want (mean on multiple W2) you can also work on 1099. The best part is you can do any type of work which is not applicable for principal applicant for the GC.
