Not sure, give a try by checking the status online. I think one should receive the decision from the USCIS in mail.

Question a further question

I have current H1-B for a while. While I am working for my employer with H1B, can I work for another job with EAD. If so, what should be done for that?

I will be happy if anyone can give ideas.

There are different opinions here,

I never thought about it, definitely good question. Read something when you use your EAD the H1B will be automatically cancelled, but in this situation certainly you need to prove you are both on H1B and EAD.


Communicate this to your attorney and you can wait for more responses as well.

Thanks

Already hashed and rehashed on these forums countless times.

The simple answer is you cannot do that - according to Rajiv Khanna and a couple of other high-ranking lawyers.

This need to have two jobs is a rebound behavior. Back home, most of those who are contemplating two jobs would never even think of taking a second job.

But once they arrive in the US and discover the H Visa-limitations, they feel restrained and with the arrival of the EAD the limitation is removed. They feel they have to exercise this new found freedom by doing something that was not possible until now. The first option is to take multiple jobs and the second option is to open an LLC. In most cases, this new found energy is short-lived.

It may be worthwhile for people to question their need for doing either of the two. Do they really have good reasons or is it just the rebound thing?

like the humor in your post .. it is very true .. I personally feel so ... I guess it is the urge of more money that makes people think about 2nd job or LLC as you mentioned ...

Problem is that nobody like to have pain to go through all the forums and want ready made answers... Just start charging fee for each answer and you see the drastic reduction in repeatative questions.

how is it possible to do individual contracting by invoking AC21.Atleast we can remove the so many layers who pocket our pay each and every hour we work.Can we really do that or do we have to be an employee of some firm.

The answer lies in your question. AC-21 allows you to be self employed (do individual contracting) after 6 months from the I-485 receipt date, and replace your I-140 job offer by self-employment.

it will be great if this is possible.self-employment.So what is the process for being self employed.Is it that we need to open a company and work through that? what if we get an RFE asking which company we work for.If its some major vendor company we are contracting, can we submit their employement letter ofcourse which will specify the hourly rate and not the annual compensation.Little confusion but nice to know its possible.Thanks

Default EAD Status

I know it has to be similar job profile, if any job change after 180 days. Not sure, does one needs to be on Payroll with no gap (as applies to an H1B holder) who is on EAD.
