On EAD (Green card) - Question about changing jobs

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I am looking to switch jobs. My current employer filed for my GC (November 2009 priority date) and I am working on EAD. 

A common question I see during the job search is "Will you require sponsorship?".

Am i correct in assuming that my answer should be 'Yes'?

I believe the new employer will have to file a labor and I140 at the minimum.

Thanks in advance.

How long ago was your I-485 filed? If you are working on EAD you have to have an I-485 filed.
If it was more than 180 days ago, you don't need sponsorship. The AC-21 rules allow portability.
