Need advice - H1 vs EAD status


Recommended Posts

Hi Experts need your quick advice on below.

I have an approved EB1C I-140 petition with a priority date of mid 2016. Unfortunately, due to retrogression, my concurrently filed I-485 has not been processed and I believe I need to wait until October when the dates would be current again.

I have a recently extended EAD for the next two years based on pending I485.

My question is whether it is better to stay on H1B status or move to EAD status by asking the employer to file I-9. The reason for this ask is that EAD status would be much safer and provide flexibility of work location as compared to H1.

Please let me know your advise and also the pros & cons of one vs another.

Any advise on this matter will be highly appreciated.
