Me and my spouse have a H1B and H4 + H4 EAD respectively all valid until Aug 2020.
I had questions about H1B transfers to a new employer?
- Does H1B and H4 get transferred at the same time (along with extension?) or does H4 need to be filed in separately once H1B transfer is successful?
- What happens to H4 EAD? Say I transfer now, when can I begin the process to extend H4 EAD beyond the Aug 2020 date (assuming I can use my current employer filed and approved I-140 and my new employer hasn’t done that yet)
Would it be wise to switch jobs now or wait until Feb 2020 (6 months prior to deadline), get H1B, H4 and H4 EAD extended together and then look for a new job?
It would be really helpful if someone could help answer this in some detail.
