    H1B Cap and the New Registration Process

    Previously, the one year period was counted from the first day the person is outside the U.S. to the day the future benefit was requested. However, it is not clear at this time how USCIS will proceed regarding the new process and when someone must be eligible.

    H1B Cap and the New Registration Process

    USCIS has stated the following in regards to the situation you are inquiring about: As long as there is a legitimate business need for each petition/petitioner and there are two real and separate job opportunities, then each entity can submit a registration for the same beneficiary. Each petitioner must be able to establish the legitimate business need. If not, the petitioner will risk having the approvals for all the cap-subject petitions filed by “related entities” for the same beneficiary denied or revoked.

    EAD/AP

    If a COS was approved in October 2019 to H4 and you received your H4EAD at that time as well, the H4EAD must have been your work authorization unless you took action to remain in H1B status after the COS to H4 was approved.

    EAD/AP

    Yes, the EAD allows you to work in any legal capacity you wish, including more than one job.

    EAD/AP

    The above details alone will not be a basis for an EAD. Typically, this scenario will require the priority date to be current or eligible for filing and the EAD request will be submitted with the adjustment of status application.

    EAD/AP

    Prior to making any changes to your employment, it is advisable to speak to an attorney knowledgeable in this area. Generally, if the I-485 has been pending 180 days and the new position qualifies for AC21 (i.e., substantially similar), then you can file the I-485J to inform USCIS of the change in job offers. USCIS will adjudicate the I-485J and can deny or approve the application.
  12. Attorney_22

    EAD/AP

    Filing an I-485J is not mandatory at this time unless specifically requested by USCIS. The basis of your work authorization, or the SOC code of the new position, does not change the requirement regarding I-485J Form filings.

    EAD/AP

    Generally, provided your spouse is in valid L2 status, the EAD should continue to remain valid for the duration stated. However, to discuss your situation in detail, it is advisable to call our office and speak with one of our attorneys.
