H4-EAD with I-140 Change Employers

Hello There,

I am working on H1B and completed 6 years and got my I-140 approved with my employer. Also got 3 years extension on H1B and have stamped visa till April 2018 for both.

I will apply for my wife’s EAD after 26th May.

My question is this, If my wife’s H4-EAD gets approved in next 2-3 months for 3 years and after EAD approval if I will change my employer. My new employer will fill the Labor and I-140 for me once I join them.

Will my wife’s EAD be valid in case of my previous I-140 revoked or remain valid until new I-140 approved with new employer?


An H-4 EAD has no restrictions and it will remain valid irrespective of your employer changes.
