Hi guys. I have a serious question.

I am in the U.S. with a K-1 Visa, married and I-485 on process. I have received my EAD and I want to be self-employed.

I have a website and I am approved by Google Adsense. Since it is a 1099-Misc, I want to know if it is ok for me to earn through 1099-Misc (I do not wish to break any rules).

I asked a question on Google forums and they shunned me down saying that I will be deported and so on. I am just frustrated with these online trolls and would like to get a real answer.

My question is: "Is it ok to work with a 1099 while on EAD?. Are there any such restrictions? Will that affect my visa?"

I'm not aware of any such restrictions. You can work (or not work) in any legal capacity.

With an H1B (or similar) visa, you would be limited to the type of work you were approved to perform. With an EAD? You should be fine with anything.
