    joining residency

    Thanks soo much for the answer.


    My husband has applied for GC last year(he is on H1 visa and i am on H4 visa).we have completed our labor certification.We applied for I-485(EAD/work permit) and I-130(green card). We got our EAD/workpermit(even i got the EAD),while our green card takes some more time.Mean while can I apply to residency using my EAD status??My question is will they consider it as a permanent visa status like green card??

    i hope you understand my Question...

    thanks..

    residency

    I think i know the answer. Once you have the EAD, you can start working. No problem with that. I am in software field, i have seen many of my friends who got EAD for their wife and they started working. I hope this helps.
