EAD to H1B Change of Status

Recommended Posts


I'm in a predicament with the status I should fill on my EAD/AP renewal application. During my recent visit back into US, I used AP to enter the country and subsequently I've changed to a different job using my EAD. Now my current employer has also initiated my H1B change of status and that petition is also approved. With this scenario I have below questions:

1. Can I still use Parolee status on my EAD/AP renewal application?

2. If yes, what happens to my approved H1B petition? Is it considered not used/abandoned? Can I later enter the country using this H1B?

3. If no, would my AOS considered abandoned, as I switched to H1B with a new employer?

Any guidance is very much appreciated.
