I am a Canadian Citizen on H1B status. I plan to quit my job withing another few weeks. I already have my EAD and AP docs. Will I be able to work on EAD or do I need to file some change of status?
You may use your employment authorization document to work for another employer. However, I recommend that my H-1B clients maintain their H-1B status until their permanent resident application is approved in case something goes wrong with their permanent resident application. This way, the H-1B status serves as a back-up to keep you in status if your application for permanent residency through your wife fails.
