Hello Pallavi ji, I am on H-1B which is valid for a couple more years and I have a pending I-765/I-485 through my husband. It was filed in Mid August, 2021 and is pending(BM done in November and applied). I want to quit my job and take a break for personal reasons. Since the I-765/I-485 is pending, my husband is filing his paperwork for H-1B extension. Do I have to maintain my H-1B i.e. keep working until an H4 is filed for me or can I quit my job now and file H4 later?Answer:
In response to your question, My recommendation is to change your status to H4 then take a break from working. All the best.
