Change the type of job on EAD
I am currently working as a Functional Solution Architect in an IT firm.
Current Status: H1B (6th year)
GC status as follows:
Priority Date: April 2007
EAD received: October 2007
I-140 is approved.
Under the AC21 portability I believe I can change my employer without affecting my GC process. However I want to change my field of work from IT to Finance. My question is:
1. Is that permissible and can I use my EAD to work for a new employer in a different field.
2. If the above is not permissible and If I change my job in the same field, can my previous employer cancel my GC process, even though my I-140 is approved. If they can, how can I mitigate that possibility.
Thanks in advance for your response.
Please update your profile..
Here are the answers:
1. No, you can not change the profile and should look for something which is similar to what was stated on your I-140.
2. You can switch to a new job provided your I-485 is pending for more then 180 days, which seems to be the case and the new job is similar to what is on I-140.
NOTE: NO, you can not switch from IT to finance. I mean you can but if you receive any RFE then you will have a big issue.
