View Full Version : *** Need Help Urgently - EAD / AP ***

09-18-2012, 09:32 PM

Following are Green Card process happenings so far :-

Step 1 : I had filled my 1-485 applicaiton and received by USCIS on 3rd Mar'12.

Step 2 : I got my EAD / AP ( Combo Card) on Apr'12.

Step 3 : I got the RFE on I-485 for Medical & Proof of Status on May'12

Step 4 : Submitted the required document and received by USCIS on 27th Jun'12.

Step 5 : I had called USCIS after 2 months ( i.e. on 27th Aug'12) to check whether the RFE
docs are prejudicate or not but they advised that currently Feb'12 application are
under process for results and it will take approx.1 month to take my application.

Current Status : I am on H1b Visa and my Visa is expired on Passport but my I-797 is valid till
2014. I have my EAD/AP as well.

My Question:

1) I am going to India on vacations so per above situation , should I travel to India and come back on AP to USA in order to avoid H1b Visa stamping hassles and also easy to switch the employer.
2) As my I-485 has RFE and could lead to denial ( you never know) , so shall i go for H1b VIsa
Stamping in order to make sure that if denial happens then atleast I would not be OUT OF
STATUS and can continue to work on valid H1b.

Please advise based on my situation. Thanks in advance.
