Approved I140 last year, will changing jobs affects getting a H4 EAD for my wife?Feb 8
I've approved I140, and my wife will be requiring H4 EAD in August. So, if I change job after an approved H1B transfer, will there be a problem to get H4 EAD later on in August.
I think the new company needs to file for perm and then for I140? Which would take at least an yr.
Will USCIS approve H4 EAD when I don't have the I140 modified for new company?
- Mazda Motor mmohammeEmployer doesn’t matter as long as you have an approved I140 while USCIS adjudicates H4 EAD. Hope you’ve crossed 180 days cut off post I140 approval as employer withdrawing it will have no impact on H4 EAD.
