F1 (Opt extension) - Getting married to US citizen


Recommended Posts



First, thanks for supporting this forum where people can ask immigration related questions.


Details - 

1 - I am currently on my F1 visa (in opt). My employer has filed H1B for me which will come 
    into affect Oct. 1 2014.

2 - Pretty soon (Before Oct 1), I am getting married to a US citizen.

3 - It looks like I will have to file for I-130 and I-484. USCIS will issue EAD (60 to 90 days)

Question - 

I am planning to switch my company. Do I have to wait for the new EAD card (60-90 days) before I can switch my company ?


Thanks for reading !
