Filed for family based green card last Dec and still waiting on EAD card. I am currently on H1B, but would like to change job when I get my EAD card. Is this too risky to do before getting my green card? Or is it ok to do?

How did you file family-based? You mean spouse-based?

The issue is not a lot of conpanies in my desired field consider H1b transfer.. and that’s why I would like to use the EAD card from spouse based gc process and just get another job. Just wondering how risk this is.. not using H1b

USCIS is f**king us up big time (those who submitted AOS after Oct 2020).

Nobody knows, but you could blame this administration. At least under Trump EAD was almost never delayed.

Hi guys, I am in a process of receiving an offer from my current employer’s US Branch. However, the job is gonna be in a different department (M&A) than the one I worked for here (Audit). Would that be an issue with respect to the L1 visa process? Thanks for the advise.

This has never happened in previous years. Does it mean I missed a form using H&R block or is it related to the status change…?
