Indian on h1b & 140 approved. wife has an h4 EAD (valid for a cpl yrs). If I switch and ask the new firm to redo the 140 , will my wife lose her existing EAD (since she will also have a new h4)?

Nope. She's good. Also, you don't need a new 140 immediately with the new firm to get H1 extensions, unless your priority date is close to current.


Thank !

OP: how long have you been waiting to get 140 approved since the day you initiate the GC process ? I am about to start but have no clue about timeline. Can you share some info? Thanks much!

If this is your first call about gc, you have at least a year before you get 140 . Even if you expedite your 140 approval process aftr the perm step, you might still end ko with 10 months . This was before D changed its contract to the new law firm . The new law firm has been extremely bad with everything so expect more delays . Sorry to be a spoilsport

I agree how bad the new vendor is. So am I expecting to get 140 approved by fall next year and submit 485 in 10 years? I looked up the priority date that scares me.. not sure how realistic that is

Just get your process started as soon as possible . You can't control the rest

I honestly don't get this. I know SO many great creatives looking for jobs...maybe, just spitballin' here Recruiters, if you didn't ghost so many candidates so often, you wouldn't be having such a hard time filling open positions, poor babies.

Hi there! I'm an undergrad debating between EYP Deal Tech and PwC Deal Analytics summer internships in New York. PwC's internship salary is much higher, but I heard EY deal tech is more strategy-based (and coming from a tech background, I'm quite interested in trying that out). From a future career growth perspective, which company/role would be better?

Sorry, but the Second Amendment as it is written does not limit who can "keep and bear arms" or what kind of arms people can keep and bear. Federal gun regulation didn’t come until 1934, decades after the Second Amendment was introduced.

The Constitution does, however, give Congress the power to "grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal," which were government licenses that allowed civilians to attack and detain vessels of countries at war with the U.S., including their cannons for use.
