Default H1B to E3-Dependent to avoid frustrating GC wait

Just wondering if anybody is giving up hopes of GC and switching from H1B to E3D (Dependent of Australian spouse) to take advantage of 2-yr renewable EADs...? How long does it take to get the initial EAD...Continue working without pay (or is there a workaround) while waiting for EAD?....any problems getting visa stamped with a 'yes' for past immigrant petition filed...
7yrs in this country...EB2 PD of 10/07 due to job changes..no 140 yet, no 485...6yrs in same job? no promotions? with 3yr extensions...frustration beyond words...E3D seems to a ray of hope but no idea of complications involved.

Yeah its frustrating everyone waiting for a GC .. I think doing something is better than nothing. Go with your spouse. Who knows things might take a turn for the better.

My cousin (unmarried) is on an E-3 visa. But if I remember correctly, an E-3 visa holder cannot have immigrant intent. So the "immigration petition filed" question might create trouble. You should consult a lawyer.
