View Full Version : dependent E-1 with current EAD, filing I-140, i-485

09-25-2009, 03:40 PM

I am currently a dependent E-1 on my wife's visa and currently have a valid EAD which will expire mid-2010.

We are about to file I-140 and I-485 and my question is, should I also file for a new EAD at the same time even if its still 8 months from expiry? I'm not sure what the difference is between an EAD under the E-1 visa, or an EAD when filing the I-485, or if it doesn't matter at all.

Hopefully someone can help. Thanks!
