    Re: Working on EAD without i-140 approval!

    Hi Vaishu!

    Have 2 questions for u based on your post.

    1. Isn't EAD approved only after the I -140 of the principal is approved & the priority dates are current??

    2. Doesn't the H4 visa become void/invalid once the EAD is approved??

    Thanks,
    Ragini

    Re: Working on EAD without i-140 approval!

    Hi,

    EAD is an interim benefit given to the applicants within 90 days of applying AOS if and only if the AOS is not approved within 90days of filing(Ofcourse ,approval of AOS within 90days of filing is very rare!,SO they give EADs meanwhile to grant work permit ).


    Reply to ur 1 question : Not necessarily!It depends on when we file our AOS.If one files AOS(i-485) after the approval of i-140,then EAD gets approved within 90 days of filing AOS.But When one files concurrently(i-140/485/ap/EAD),then he/she gets EAD within 90 days of concurrent filing.

    Reply to ur 2 question : .H4 doesnot get void when one gets EAD approved but becomes void or invalid if he/she works on EAD.H4 status hold good when he/she don't work on EAD.But,using EAD one can actually apply for SSN .

    Hope this helps u,
    vaishu

    Hi Friends,

    I am Dhana came to US three months back in L2 visa. At present I am only a house-wife. But I would like to search for a job in US. I got SSN. I know that to work in US, I have to get the EAD first. But I don't know how to apply for it and other rules and regulations. If anyone know the details, please share with me.


    Thanks in advance....

    Re: How to apply for EAD in US

    Hi,

    Usually you or your spouse has to apply for Adjustment of status (I-485) and then you can apply for EAD. To apply for AOS your priority date needs to be current. I'm not sure if the rules are different for L2 visa holders. you may want to talk to an attorney - I believe someone on this forum is an immigration lawyer and will be able to advise you better.

    Regards,
    Mythraeyi

    Mythraeyi, the method you are saying is for the ones who are applying for GC, however applying EAD while on L2 is quite simple, search on net and the info is easily available
