GC filed under EB1C, can spouse work before I-140 is approved?

5 posts in this topic

Hi, 

My husband, an Indian national, is currently on L1A visa. His employer filed for our GC by concurrently filing I-140 and I-485 applications in April 2017 under EB1C category. My current EAD (based on my L2 status) expires on 8/31/2017. Can I file for an EAD/AP before his I140 is approved? 

Thank you for your views and opinions in advance.

If you have an I-485 pending, you can of course get an EAD based on that.

Thanks JoeF, 

My question is if I can apply for an EAD even before my husband's I140 is approved. 

Thank you.

If the PD is current, both your husband and you can file I-485s, even if the I-140 is not yet approved.

What @JoeF was trying to say is, if you have a pending I-485 application, you can file for an EAD based on that (your own pending I-485 application) and do not need to worry about your husbands I-140 approval.

 

Hope this helps and clears your doubt.
