    Hello Ron & team,

    I am currently on an H1B visa and have an approved I140 with my prior employer. I am in the processing of processing my H1B extension at the moment and was planning to concurrently file for my wife's H4 visa and EAD (she is currently on an H1B). Assuming she gets her EAD in a few months, will there be an impact if I change jobs at a later point? I will obviously file her H4 transfer as well but want to understand if her EAD will cease to be valid? She will continue to remain in H4 status but with a different employer.

    Appreciate your inputs!

    Thanks and keep up the good work!

    My understanding is that as long as you remain in valid H1B status, changing jobs will have no impact on an H4 EAD.
