485 approval chances if not working


Recommended Posts

Do I need to be employed while my i-485 pending. I am going to stay is usa but i will not be doing any type of work here so what are the chances of getting my 485 approval. I know I can legally stay on parole status or work on EAD or extend my H1 on approved i-140 basis but I am not going to do any of that so just staying idle here without paystubs and w2 will be a problem to get the GC approval. please let me know.

1. Your Reply - 'There is no obligation to work while I-485 is pending' - is confusing to me.

2. I have heard that even if you have the EAD and Advance Parole approved, you have to continue with the Employer who filed for your I-485 for at least 3 to 6 months AFTER receipt of Green Card. Is this true or not?

3. If a pperson quits a job after receiving the EAD and Advance Parole BUT BEFORE receiving the Green Card, can the Sponsoring Employer, withdraw the pending I-485 Application?

Clarifications re. the above will be really appreciated.
