Starting a consulting Company while on EAD?
I am on H1B with Labor approved about 2.8 years ago and I-140 approved for over a year ago.
I am July2007 fiasco filer of Indian origin.....in US for a some 13 years and I am Canadian citizen.
I have almost 2.5 years of H1B still left from my 3 year H1B extension.
I had EAD before but never used it, so my employer has not renewed it.
I am currently working on H1B.
I understand I am not allowed to work in my own business while on H1B, but I can have profit or loss from it......so it doesn't make sense to start a consulting business while on H1B in my opinion (correct me if I m wrong btw).
Starting a Consulting Business on EAD:
Now I want to start a consulting business in the same/similar field of my current job for which my greencard was applied and is still pending.
Please help me with the following:
Q1: Can I start the this consulting business while on EAD? Is LLC the best option?
Q2: Will it be then job portability from my current job to this new job in my company using AC21?
Q3: What conditions do I need to fulfill for working in my own company to keep my greencard alive?
Q4: What evidence do I need to keep handy to show USCIS if asked?
Q5: Am I supposed to inform USCIS when I do this job chnage?
Q6: Are there any minimum revenue requirements or do I have to pay myself same or more salary than my current job?
Q7: What if my business does not take off quickly and I can not pay myself same salary like my current job?
Q8: Can I apply EAD myself or I need my current employer to do so? I have the old expired EAD card that I never used.
Q9: I also don't have my job description from my labor certification. Is there a way for me to get it directly from USCIS?
Please advise. I thank you very much to help me out with this.....I know these are quite a few questions but I really need your help.
Thank you for your time and help.
