Transfer H1 to new employerTransfer H1 to new employer after 180 days of EAD
I got my EAD in Oct. I-140 is approved and I-485 is pending in EB2. My wife has got SSN on her EAD, my daughter is still on H4.
I am working on H1B with the same employer who processed my H1. Now, I got a new Job and I still have 3+ years years left in 6 years duration of H1 period.
My question is:
1. Can I transfer my H1 to new employer, without affecting my GC process ? I have good relation with my employer and they can hire me back if I want any time later.
2. As 180 days have passed, I can work on EAD also with new employer. Which is better option - working on H1 with 3+ years remaining in H1 or working on EAD ? Money is not an issue here as my new employer will take care of that.
3. My daughter is still on H4 but my wife has used her EAD. Once I transfer H1 to new company, what things should I care of, like:
(a) I have to transfer H4 for my daughter also ?
(b) What about H4 of my wife ? - She has valid H4 stamped on passport and took SSN also based upon EAD.
Thanks a lot for the quick reply. I was also thinking to go for H1 as I don't have to renew EAD every year.
My wife has worked on a project and got some money on 1099. and as I said earlier that she has taken SSN based upon her EAD.
Does it mean that she has started using EAD ?
and now her H4 is invalid ?
I have got all copies of my labor, I-140 etc. and it has been more than 180 days that I have got my EAD. Do I need anything else from my old employer ?
