View Full Version : GC not received for H4 wife

08-23-2011, 02:28 PM
I received my GC through EB1A filing but my wife has not received her GC yet. Her I485 is still pending. We filed at the same time. Currently she is on H4/EAD. I am looking for job change actively and she also has job offer. Is it possible that I quit my current job and take new job based on my GC. Will that forfeit her H4 status? Can she work on EAD if I leave my current Job (H1b). Confused??

Since you received your GC you are no longer on H1. Therefore your wife's H4 status is no longer valid. She would be on AOS status now based on her pending I-485. That is what I think. Since she has an EAD she should be able to take up any job that she wants.
