GC EAD, Laid off on H1B - Do I need to be on W2 when priority date becomes current

Recommended Posts

Canadian citizen (India born) has a valid GC-EAD. I-485 is pending for more than 180 days. Got laid off by employer who sponsored my GC while working on H1-B. 60 days will be coming up in another 2 weeks. What are my options?

1) Do I need to file a COS before 60 days? My spouse is working on TN. Should I switch to TD (dependent) until I find a new job to be on the safe side? 

2) I believe I can work on 1099 for any employer. Will this be an issue if my priority date was to become current in next 6 months and I need to produce       I-485J (since it's not W2)?

3) My son also got his GC-EAD (dependent). He is in high school. Does he need to file a COS before 60 days?
