Hi IV members,

Need your suggestions for a situation like the below;

I am Currently on H4 visa. My husband is on H1 with EB2 PD 2008 Jan. We have not yet filed i-485 since we are waiting for PD to get current. I am currently getting offers from good companies and are willing to do H1 B visa.

1.Should I go ahead and get H1B filled with a premium processing
2.Wait for the dates to get current and file 485 and EAD?
3.If 485 is denied for some reason and hence can not use EAD, can I apply for H4 since my husbandís H1B will be valid for couple of years.

Please suggest at the earliest possible

Divya

Hi divya ....here you go .


1.Should I go ahead and get H1B filled with a premium processing

Yes you need to do this as dont know when your 485 will be current

2.Wait for the dates to get current and file 485 and EAD?

once you get your EAD you can still be on H1 to be on safe side or switch to EAD

3.If 485 is denied for some reason and hence can not use EAD, can I apply for H4 since my husbandís H1B will be valid for couple of years.

yes you can ( but remember the limit on no of years you can stay on H visa , probably it will be same as your husbands so need not worry )


Thanks

Hi IV Members and Andy,

As per previous discussion,

1.Should I go ahead and get H1B filled with a premium processing

Yes you need to do this as dont know when your 485 will be current

2.Wait for the dates to get current and file 485 and EAD?

once you get your EAD you can still be on H1 to be on safe side or switch to EAD

3.If 485 is denied for some reason and hence can not use EAD, can I apply for H4 since my husbandís H1B will be valid for couple of years.

yes you can ( but remember the limit on no of years you can stay on H visa , probably it will be same as your husbands so need not worry )

Need your advise/inputs/suggestions on the following;

My Husband's PD has become current in Dec Visa Bulletin; and we are trying to push our 485 through our company attorney.
a.Can I file my H1 while our 485 is submitted for approval with USCIS?
b. will there be any impact on our 485/ EAD if I file my H1 at this stage?

Please suggest at the earliest possible
