Hi Ron, I made the cut to be able to file for AOS in October with my EB2 I PD of Mar 26, 2010. Wanted to get some understanding on my current situation I currently work for my sponsoring employer and am in the last few days of contract with my client. I do not have any other opportunity lined up yet. I am looking to convert to H4. Does that impact my eligibility to obtain EAD/AP in any way via filing next month? Should I be working on the date of filing? After 180 days upon I1485 receipt date, I assume I can use AC21 and invoke I140 portability. Should I have been working for the sponsoring employer in all of these 180 days and can I be on H4 without a job as well? I was wondering how I can let USCIS know that I am in a same or similar occupation. Would I need my new employer to give me a offer letter with the job duties similar to my PERM? or something altogether different? Do I need to use a lawyer for AC21 portability? Thanks and hopefully you will be able to help me with this. I do not have a lawyer nor am I represented by one at this moment. Thanks.
