EB1 Extra ordinary ability - Job loss

Recommended Posts


I have an approved I140 under EB1 Extra ordinary ability category. I am in the US from past 10 years with 8 years of professional experience and two years of masters education.  In the same week as I received the approval for I140 , my company went through a workforce reduction and I got laid off. Its been 2 months since. I have applied for change of status and done with bio-metrics as well. I am waiting on to hear back on EAD.

My question is - Is there any underlying problem in not having a job during the period of change of status and green card approval under this category ? I have provided a letter of employment from a company who is ready to hire me on the basis of my green card approval. 

Look forward to some guidance -
