Shall I file H1B or H4 EAD or Both?


Recommended Posts

I'm working on F1-OPT and I have the following option to continue working:

1. File my H1B through my employer - Project is currently approved and it has high chances of getting extended but it'll be difficult to get client letter at the third party location

2. File H4 and H4-EAD - This is preferred as it would provide more flexibility to be with my newborn.

3. Can I file both? What will happen if both get approved?

4. Can I work on F1- OPT while waiting for H4-EAD?

Thanks for the help.

File H-4 and H-4 EAD. Don't file both H-1 and H-4. It will create unnecessary confusion. You can work until your F-1 OPT expiry date.
