    H1B vs. EAD While I-140 is Pending

    Hi JoeF, firstly, let me thank you for taking such as active interest on the forum. You've been an active participant for many years and and it is great to have you. While looking through some old posts I came across your comment and feel it is worth clarifying. Generally, this forum is for non-case specific information, and therefore, the general guidance regarding the EAD/H1B is that an H1B can provide a safety net that someone on EAD will not have if there is an issue with the AOS. It is true that most AOS cases, if done correctly, do not need that safety net. It is also a reality that if there is something sufficiently serious in someone's past that could cause an AOS to be denied, then it also is likely to be an issue for the nonimmigrant status. However, it is not a smoke screen. In practice we've seem many more AOS cases denied due to errors by USCIS, then an issue of inadmissibility/removability. The number of Motions we've had to file for clients due to a USCIS mistake is extensive, and the few individuals that have maintained H1B are thankful they did. As I am sure you know, a Motion does not place an applicant back into status, and therefore, if they are only in a POAS and using the EAD, they then need to watch the clock to make sure they do not trigger a bar for unlawful presence. The forum is not really the best place to go into all these details, but I hope you now understand the basis for the general guidance. Thank you for being a part of this.
  10. Your EAD allows you to take on additional work, and the green card should be fine provided you maintain that qualifying job offer.
  11. AC21 analysis is not solely determined by the SOC code, but generally, if the first two digits are the same, it is likely the position will be considered substantially related. The most important part of the analysis are the job duties. You will need to compare the two positions.

  14. The answers to your questions will vary depending on if this Supp J is for AC21 or is being filed for the first time with the AOS. It will also depend on how the initial PERM position was drafted. I recommend speaking with your attorney directly regarding this matter. Or if you wish, you can call our office to speak to one of our attorneys.
  15. AC21 allows for normal job progression.
