Applying for OPT while having EAD from parents I-485 AOS which could potentially cancelled due to Age Out


Recommended Posts

I am on F1 visa. My parents applied for their I-485 AOS few months prior to me turning twenty-one and got my EAD and AP. I-485 is still pending as still Final Action Date not reached for my parent's priority date.

Even though I got my EAD, that could be potentially cancelled when Final Action Date comes as I am over twenty-one now and will not meet current age out requirements.

In this scenario, does it make sense to apply for my OPT and get EAD there to be safer as I will be graduating this December. Appreciate any guidance in this regard.
