Can principal I-485 applicant apply for EAD/AP along with L1 extension?


(anonymous) #1

I am the principal I-485 applicant, can i still apply for EAD/AP?

The reason for asking is that i find different answers as i have to apply for L1 extension and along with it apply for AP.

Not sure of this and had confusion. Plz provide more details. Thanks.

You can apply for both L1 extension and i485 pending EAD/AP.

Thanks for the response.

Another query is that, am i allowed to apply for EAD & AP based on pending I-485 without my L1 extension? As per one of the contact without L1 extension you are not allowed & i am out of status after September 30th, 2019. I understand based on earlier response that i can apply L1 extension & apply for EAD & AP.

Can you plz suggest pros & cons with & without L1 extension.

Thanks in advance.

You need some legal status to stay in USA which is your current L1 visa.

Once you get your EAD/AP, you can come back to USA and stay in USA using your i485 EAD.
