Recommended Posts


I'm on H1B and married US citizen last month,  We applied fo IR1 and sent out AOS package last week. 

Today I hear there will be layoffs in my office , and my team will get affected. 

My H1B is valid till Jan, 2020.  What are my options if I get impacted with layoffs ?

1. Will I be able to work on AOS EAD , assuming I get it within next 60 days. 

2. Find another job that would sponsor my H1B.

3. What will happen if I don't get job in 60 days ? Does that mean I am overstaying visa and that will ruin my AOS


Appreciate your help,

* Moved from Ir-1/CR-1 P&P to AOS from Work, Student, and Tourist Visas *


  1. Yes. Although it's taking ~4-6 months on average to get an EAD.
  2. This is a valid option.
  3. You will lose legal status, but a pending I-485 grants authorized stay while the case is processed. So no issue (plus overstay is ignored as a spouse of a USC).

FYI, IR-1 is a visa. You are doing AOS, not obtaining a visa.
