Currently on H1B (it has been less than a year) and just applied for Green Card through marriage. I really want to leave my current company and don't want to be tied to H1B while searching for new job. Is it safe to leave your company and use your work permit from the GC application?

If you have received your EAD, you can use it to work for any employer in the US while you wait for USCIS to adjudicate the I-485 . The risk is that if your I-485 is denied, your EAD is no longer valid and you would need to immediately stop working and would likely need to depart the US until you find another employer to sponsor an H-1B petition on your behalf.

Hello, My current H1B expires in Aug 2022 and extension will be filed in Feb 2022 with premium processing. Can I travel out of USA using the previous visa stamp in April 2022 or do I need to get a new stamp with new expiration date at the consulate office in my home country for entering at port of entry when I return?

Friends - Is any company hiring? Considering H1B transfer? I have total only 28 months left on my visa? Doesn’t look like the firm is going to sponsor green card. I have been performing well in my department no negative reviews in 4 years yet HR denied to file GC. Apparently they are only considering Managers for GC. Is this the same situation in Big 4 Audit? Please comment.

Something I’m struggling with as it relates to the rise of the “Karens”. I get it, Karens suck and are very real but why is it that women always have to deal with this kind of stereotype? Men, especially Trumpian white men, are just as bad about their own privilege. Maybe they handle it differently or maybe people are less inclined to record them? I don’t know. But somehow it feels like yet another divide between women. Just wish we could make it less about gender and more about privilege.
