Desi fam! Is the H4 EAD linked in any way to the dependent’s (on H1B) employer? Just want to make sure that as long as the H1B holder has an approved I140, the H4 EAD holds irrespective of the employer, correct?

Correct- not dependent on employer but the validity of the H1 which of course requires person to be employed by someone

Yup, makes sense- thanks!

I often see posts where partners are concerned about money. I never get that. I grew up with nothing. Poor in Appalachia. Most people I know are still poor. They are happy. Or at least no more or less happy than I am in the top .01 percent. I feel no fear of losing all my money or being poor again. I never chose to make money and never have oriented my life around money. I have NW around 14m and live in a 400k house and drive a Kia. Why do some of you seem so concerned about the money?
