Hi experts, I recently filed my 7th year H1B extension which is pending my I-94 is expired, can i file 485 which PD are current or should i wait for the H1B approval first, 

 

What will happen if H1B extension get denied after filling 485. can i be considered as out of status and can potentially affect 485 process ?

You should file your I-485 ASAP. No need to wait for your H1B extension. If your H1B extension is denied before you receive your EAD/AP card then yes you are considered out of status.

485 and H1B are 2 independent things. Your 485 should not be impacted by your H1B denial.
