Changing from H1B to H4-EAD. Remaining years in H1B is still valid?


Recommended Posts


  My wife is having H1B and has 3 years remaining. I am on H1B having I-140 approval. So my wife is eligible to work on H4-EAD.


  We get to know that her current employer may do layoff. So she wanted to move to H4-EAD to get the new job ASAP since new employer does need to do sponsorship.


Question is If she moves to H4-EAD, can she still use remaining H1B period later, in case my H1B have some issue in future?
