I filled for adjustment of status (family-based) and my EAD and status adjustment is pending. I want to know if I can register a corporation and assign myself as a director within this period. I am not intending to make money from it; I just want to form the legal entity. My partner will be in charge of bank accounts.
There is no law against forming a corporation if one has a pending adjustment application and employment authorization. If the corporation and intended employment is contrary to the basis for your adjustment, it may be an issue.
