    Hi, I am on H1B visa and am going to apply for H4 and EAD (my husband has approved I140). While I wait for the EAD to come through, after H4 is approved, is it legally possible to be on leave of absence (unpaid) instead of resigning?

    Yes it is. Make sure to write a letter (or email) to your employer, requesting a leave of absence and state the reason for it.
