I am in US since Dec 2010. I have H1 visa valid till Dec 2016. My current employer is ready to start my EAD processing. I have also got offer from another employer(better salary) and this new employer is also ready to file EAD for me.
My question - is it better to file EAD through my current employer or join new employer and then start EAD processing through him? Because as my visa will expire in Dec 2016, to get one year extension after my sixth year, my employer has to start processing before 365 days to expiry. Right? And if I join new employer now, that process will be delayed at least by couple of months.
As PERM may take 8-9 months, is it advantageous to start processing EAD through my current employer, to save time?
As per my knowledge, if an employer files PERM 365 days before then my visa can be extended beyond six years.
Please provide suggestions
