I am currently working in the US on a J-1 visa but have recently (Feb 2013) sent in my application for a green card. I've applied for an Employment Authorization Document as well but have not yet received any kind of confirmation or reference number for my pending case. My J-1 expires at the end of March and my employer would like to to extend it and keep me in my current position for another year. Can I renew my J-1 while the Green Card application is pending? If not and I do not receive the Employment Authorization Document in time is there another way for me to get a permit to work? I would hate to loose my job just because the paperwork is hung up.
