H1-B Laid off and Waiting for Green card though spouse

Recommended Posts

I am currently working on H1B visa. My spouse (US citizen) has filed for my Green Card I130/I485/I765 recently. I have received the receipt for 485 and 765.

I have not received my employment authorization card/advance parole yet.


I have been notified by my employer that I will be impacted by a impending layoff in my organization. I am worried about my immigration status

after the layoff. In case I am not able to land a new job before the layoff, what will be my immigration status? I have been told that I will be in

“485 pending” status as soon as the layoff is completed. Is this true?

The pending I-485 keeps you legal. Once the EAD is approved you can work anywhere.
