Default i am on H1 status,485 pending, got EAD/AP but not using it.

Fellas,

i am on H1 status,485 pending, got EAD/AP but not using it.

question is ----can i go back to india & stay there until my PD becomes current. as soon as i will get to know about my PD being current from VB, i will enter US.

this works or not! or should i need to be on EAD to do this.

would it create any issue at time of 485 approval

any inputs/comments would be highly appreciated!

There is lot of confusion still exits for 485 filers. The law is very simple. Once any one files 485 , they should not leave the country till it gets approved. This is the condition of 485. During AOS one must STAY in US, except for a short trip using AP. If, one can not maintain the stay during 485, it is better to convert to CP.

AP and H1B visa is not a complete freedom to stay away from US during entire AOS period. You can go for only short trip using AP/H1B visa. Even if you have 3 year h1b visa and left the US for indefinte period during AOS, you will still considered as you aboonded the 485 if they find out.
