tejas389 Posted September 6, 2011 Report Share Posted September 6, 2011 1) My primary eb2 I-485 applied in july 2007 My wife applied as primary eb3 I-485 in july 2007 ( At that time even though we were already married I did not add her as my derivative in my application, basically it was a mistake from our part) 2) My priority date again became current in July 2011 during which time I added my wife as a derivative applicant in my eb2 application. We also applied her EAD/AP together along with the eb2 derivative application. Also she is still maintaining her eb3 status in USA. 3) I received my green card few weeks ago. 4) My wife received the receipt notice(receipt date July 1st 2011) of the derivative I-485 and also few days ago she received her new EAD card based on the derivative application. 5) Her derivative application is based in Nebraska service center where current processing time is 7 mths The fact that my wife has received the receipt notice of the derivative based I-485 application ,following is my question Can she leave her current job and take time off? This also means ,Is it now required for my wife to maintain her current eb3 status to still maintain her eb2 derivative application and stay in country? Many Thanks for the help. Link to comment
