I was on H1b and got laid off in state of maryland. After layoff I changed the status from H1b to H4 visa. Can I apply for unemployment benefits?
If yes, will this create any adverse condition whe I apply for I485 change of status?
Please help out.
This 'can I apply' question is not an immigration question. With that said, I have heard that if you can't immediately work .. then you probably can't collect.
No, applying for unemployment won't impact on a I-485 application ... assuming you qualify for an adjustment of status.
