I am on H1B and so is my boy friend. We are getting married this week. He will be filing Greencard soon. How long does it take to get work permit. Is it possible for me to change job right away, after receiving work permit, or not at all?
It takes a few months to get the EAD, when you have it you can work for anyone, however, if your adjustment application is denied for any reason it will be revoked and if you have already left your employer you may have issues with your H1B. Because marriage applications are complicated you should file with an attorney, my firm handles such cases.
