Currently I am working on EAD with my company (expires on 10/11/2010) and applied for renewal of EAD on 06/10/2010. Also I have a pending H1B renewal with my current employer from past 2 years (applied in May 2008, the original h1b expired in 11/2008). Now I am planning to change jobs (and my I-140 approved 11/2007) and my I-485 (receipt date is 08/2007).
Can i apply for AC21 protability? What are the risks in applying AC21 when there is not backup H1B. Also the SOC codes for my current and jobs are 15.1030 and 15.1051 as per DOL occupation handbook. Is there any issue with applying for AC21 n this regard.
