EAD vs H1


Recommended Posts

Question is, is it wise to keep H1 alive or go on EAD while 485 takes around 2 years or more to be processed.

Cons of being on H1 -

- Amend H1 each time project/LCA changes

- Application Money

- Renewal issues/RFEs

- H1 Site visits

Pros of being on H1

- Can stay in US if 485 issues (I am happy to leave after GC dream ends)

Based on this, looks like not renewing H1 is wise.

My Employer said since GC is Employer based, hence its good to keep H1 alive.

Anyone has any more selling points to Renew H1 compared to being on EAD?
