Default Tricky Situation..Need Urgent Advice!!

Hi,


My current status is

I currently work for Company A (on H1B) and Company B is processing my GC (EB2, I140 approved; I485 in process) .

This month, I found a new job with Company C which I have to join on EAD (they don't do H1Bs). Also, in this month's bulletin, my PD became current. I had a few concerns/questions

1) Could the change in employment trigger any flags since I am changing companies and this is a future employment GC case (though its almost 3 years since the I-485 was filed)

2) What do you suggest I do since its so close? I waited all this time just not to complicate things (and remain on H1) but then as soon as have to start work on EAD, the date also becomes current (which I am definitely very happy about ) but now since both these events are so close, I am not sure what to do.

3) What other things are there to keep in mind in case of a future employment case?

Thanks for all the help,

If I were you, I would not do it. Just like you said, you are so close, it is not worth taking a chance. Once you get GC in your hand, world is wide open for you. You mess up with GC, you get a royal pain@ass for years. That is how I think about it.

I would wait for the GC before changing jobs. Why take a chance when you are almost there?
