    Hi Ron.
    Me and my wife are from India and both have been in USA for 12 yrs and both have an EB2 140. My wife is currently pursuing her Ph D and is in the last stages. We want to apply for EB2 NIW while she is still finishing. her old EB2 priority date is March 2009. the idea here is to get EB2 NIW approved and get EAD since the application date is July 2009. let me know if this is doable and also how to do AC21 on the EB2 NIW app. the field of her prior experience and Ph D is the same. she currently does not have any job offers.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
    Regards
    DC.

    I'm not sure that I understand your question. Your wife has an EB2 petition already. An NIW will not bump her up in the line or allow her to get an EAD any earlier than would be the case if she used her current approval.
