I am currently working in H1B status. If I apply for a change of status to H-4, along with an H-4 EAD, can I continue to work while the applications are pending?


As long as the H1B petition and status remain valid, the pending application to change status to H-4 typically would not impact one’s ability to continue H1B employment. (16.Dec.2021)
